This Value Plastics tube fitting is made of white nylon and connects three lengths of tubing in a wye branch. Wye fittings (also known as Y connectors) have angled inlets to reduce friction and turbulence, and are commonly used in gravity-drawn applications such as drainage. The 200 series barbed fittings create a secure seal with flexible tubing in high-pressure applications. Nylon is used for strength, flexibility, and resistance to abrasion, crushing, and cracking. The fitting 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).
Value Plastics manufactures plastic tubing fittings and connectors. The company, founded in 1968 and headquartered in Ft. Collins, CO, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard 9001:2008.
