This Celcon straight adapter fitting is made of acetal copolymer and has tube and NPT male connectors. This straight adapter fitting is for connecting pipes or fittings with different end types, diameters, or materials in a straight line. It is a push-to-connect fitting that connects to pipes or tubing on one end and has a National Pipe Taper (NPT) male connector on the other. The fitting is made of acetal copolymer plastic, which has low moisture absorption, high tensile and flexural strength, and is hard and fatigue resistant. The working pressure for this fitting is up to 150 pounds per square inch (psi), and it uses imperial unit measurements for industry consistency and interchangeability.
Pipe fittings are components used for connecting, terminating, controlling flow, and changing the direction of piping in many different industries. Push-to-connect compression fittings do not require tools or sealants, and are useful in installations where a heat source, such as a soldering torch, is prohibited. When purchasing pipe fittings, consider the application, as this will affect material type, shape, size, and required durability. Fittings are available threaded or unthreaded, in many shapes, styles, sizes, and schedules (pipe wall thickness).
