This Dixon 62C series union compression fitting is made of brass, has tube connections, and is suitable for indoor air applications. This union fitting has three pieces and includes a threaded connection that can be screwed or unscrewed to connect or disconnect tubes more easily than with a coupling. It has tube connections on both ends and is intended for use in low to medium pressure operating environments where there is no excessive vibration or tube movement. This fitting is made of brass for corrosion resistance, ductility at high temperatures, and low magnetic permeability and does not require flaring, soldering, or other tube preparation for assembly. This fitting meets Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) J512 and American Standards Association (ASA) for functional requirements and is Underwriter's Laboratories (UL) listed for flammable liquid. This union compression fitting is suitable for indoor air applications.
Tube fittings are components used for connecting, branching, terminating, and changing the direction of tubing in pneumatic and hydraulic systems. They are made of brass, stainless steel, PBT (polybutylene terephthalate), and other materials that resist corrosion and wear. Tube fittings have various types of connections, including threaded, welded, barbed, and push-to-connect (also called one-touch). Push-to-connect connections do not require tools or sealants. Tube fittings are used in various applications, including machine tools, airplane and truck controls, and automated production lines, among others.
