Barb Fittings vs. Push-Quick Fittings

Should you use barb fittings or push-quick fittings for your application? If you're having trouble deciding, you're not alone. Here are a few things to consider when trying to decide which type of fittings are right most appropriate for your application.

The Building Blocks of Air Circuits

Unless all your pneumatic connections are brazed or soldered, fittings are a part of all your system designs. A huge variety of fitting configurations exist, and in many different materials.

Clippard Push-Quick Fittings Adapters & Plugs

Category: 

Clippard offers a variety of accessories that are designed for use with Push-Quick Fittings. These include special #10-32 threaded adapters in both male (p/n 11674) and female (p/n 11675) thread configurations and adapters that can be used to plug a Push-Quick fitting.

The threaded adapters insert into Push-Quick Fittings and provide either a male or female thread that can be used to mount any Clippard product with a #10-32 threaded inlet. This allows the direct attachment of the product to a Push-Quick Fitting without hoses or additional fittings.

Clippard Push Quick Fittings Installation & Removal Instructions

Installation of Tubing or Hose into fitting
1. Slowly push a clean and perpendicularly cut tubing into the fitting until it comes to a dead stop.
2. Pull the tubing back gently until the Gripper Ring of the fitting grips onto the tubing and has a good seal.

Tips on Using Hose Barb Fittings

Category: 

Hose or Tubing Size.  The use of different sizes of hose or tubing in your circuits deserves some care and consideration. In general, follow the manufacturer’s guide for the size of hose or tubing you use. For air logic circuits, we recommend 1/16” ID for pilots and 1/8” ID for supplies and outputs.
