||Southampton, PA NewAge® Industries, Inc., announces the immediate availability of plastic barbed fittings in nylon, polyethylene, PVDF, and polypropylene for multi-use and single-use/disposable applications. Called Thermobarb®, the fittings are used in industries such as OEM, chemical, food and beverage, appliance, MRO, packaging, laboratory, and many others. The single use style in particular is often used in the pharmaceutical and medical markets for disposable tubing assemblies.
Thermobarb fittings offer:
- A lightweight, compact design
- Multiple barbs for secure connections
- Excellent chemical resistance
- Durability and high impact strength
- Styles including adapters, straight connectors, Y’s, tees, 4-way connectors, elbows, reducers, hose nipples, and more
Each plastic material also provides specific features. Nylon resists physical stress and abrasion; polyethylene performs better at low temperatures than other plastics; PVDF handles higher temperatures and pressures well; polypropylene is solvent and chemical resistant. The single-use Thermobarb is manufactured from FDA-approved polypropylene and meets USP Class VI and RoHS standards, is sterilizable by autoclave or gamma radiation, and is free of animal-derived ingredients.
Thermobarb fittings are designed to work with soft-walled tubing such as PVC, silicone, polyurethane, and TPR, which are all manufactured by NewAge Industries. The fittings are well stocked for same day or JIT (Just In Time) shipment. Sizes range from 1/8” through 1” tubing I.D. for most styles; hose nipples from 1/2” through 4” tubing I.D.
