This Thogus hose fitting is made of black polyethylene plastic and has a 90-degree elbow shape for connecting hose at an angle. This elbow has barbed fittings on each end to create a tight seal on flexible and semi-rigid hose when used with a hose clamp or crimp sleeve or ferrule (sold separately). The black fitting blocks exposure of fluids to light. Polyethylene is lightweight, durable, and semi-flexible. It is a chemically inert material that resists cracking and forms a good barrier to gases, vapors, and moisture. The fitting meets standards set by NSF International Consumer Products Division for health and safety, and complies with Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) international directives for hazardous materials.
Pipe fittings are components used for connecting, terminating, controlling flow, and changing the direction of piping in many different industries. 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).
Thogus manufactures injection molded plastic tube and hose fittings. The company, founded in 1950 and headquartered in Avon Lake, OH, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard 9001:2008.
