Double O’rings, Tiger Fittings Double Protection
How Tiger fittings work
To make a connection, the tube is simply pushed in by hand; the unique patented Tiger double O’ring locking system then holds the tube firmly in place without deforming it or restricting flow.
Materials of construction
Tiger fittings are made up of three components:
Bodies are produced in an acetal copolymer or polypropylene.
Double ‘O’ rings are Nitrile rubber or EPDM.
Collets are produced in acetal copolymer or polypropylene with stainless steel teeth.
To disconnect: push in collet and remove tube
Tiger fittings are suitable for the following pressures and temperatures.
|Temp.||Max Working Pressure 175 psi, 12 bar|
Fluid 5 ~ 45c
Ambient -20 ~ 65c
Maximum Torque Values for Plastic Threads BSP, BSPT & NPT.
Plastic threads are not generally as strong as brass threads. Customers and end users should be aware of this when choosing products for their applications. Over-tightening of plastic threads will cause undue stress and eventual cracking and leakage. The maximum torque figures for BSP and BSPT threads used in Tiger fittings in mating threads conforming to the relevant BS or International thread standards.
