Push-in fittings – general information
Push-in fittings are designed to connect pneumatic hoses with calibrated outside diameter. The connection is achieved by pushing the hose into the fitting. To disconnect, the body has to be pressed towards release bushing. It is recommended to use these fittings with hoses made of polyamide. The hoses made of polyurethane or other materials can also be used.
R series push-in fittings and Fox series miniature fittings, manufactured by Metal Work, are the best solution for connecting pipes and actuators in pneumatic systems. Available in various configurations for virtually unlimited application. Quick and easy to use, the push-in fittings can be re-used thousands of times without affecting the pneumatic and mechanical seal in any way. The clamping spring of special shape grips the pipe without scratching or deforming it and facilitates release.
