Tubing & Hose Buying Tips
#20: Don't Forget About Fittings and Clamps

It can be challenging to make sure you’ve covered all the bases during the tubing and hose selection process. Have you considered all the elements involved with the application? Temperatures, chemicals, pressures, flexibility needs? In Tubing & Hose Buying Tips we’ll address common selection factors, one at a time, in each issue of extrusions.

tubing and hose fittings and clampsIn most cases you'll need to attach your tubing or hose to other equipment. Fittings and clamps come in many different materials – from nylon to PVDF, fluoropolymer to brass – so you can select the best match for your application. You can even build an entire system from one material (polypropylene, nylon, polyethylene, fluoropolymer), which can greatly simplify the upfront work of checking for chemical compatibility.

When using different tubing and fitting materials, remember that the two materials must be suited to each other and must both work well in your application.

What Makes a Company's Financial Stability So Important?

Financial StabilitySo you come across Company A during an Internet search. It seems to have the 20,000 widgets you want in stock, in the sizes and colors you need, and the price is acceptable.

You make a phone call to see about credit terms and find out that they don't offer credit.

Product Comparison – Semi-Rigid Tubing

Semi-rigid refers to a style of tubing that is stiff yet has some flexibility. It's not hard like metal tubing, but it's not as soft as polyurethane or PVC tubing. Materials include certain formulations of nylon, polyethylene, and polypropylene.

semi-rigid tubingMost semi-rigid tubing is extruded from thermoplastic resin. The resin (sometimes called compound) is supplied in pelletized form and is melted before being shaped into tubing by extrusion equipment. Thermoplastic materials will repeatedly soften when heated and harden when cooled. Each of the three semi-rigid materials noted has its own benefits in tubing form.
