Barbed Tube Fittings
The barbs on these fittings provide a good insertion hold when pushed into a PEX tube end and, when further secured with a clamp, provide a good seal for low-pressure applications. Barb fittings vary by dimension, composition, maximum pressure, and temperature range, among other considerations. Configurations of barbed tube fittings include tees, adapters, caps, unions, plugs, and elbows, to name a few. In addition to barb fittings for tubing, alternative connectors include sanitary tube fittings, press fit tube fittings, instrumentation tube fittings, and push-to-connect tube fittings.
