Fittings and Connectors

IPS offers PTFE Fittings and Connectors which provide corrosion protection and media purity. Our Fittings & Connectors are designed with all wetted surfaces constructed from the purest of Fluoropolymer (PTFE). These components are chemically inert and corrosion resistant. Click here to jump to our Fitting & Connector Online Catalog or search below for a specific fitting or connector style.

IPS machined plumbing supplies are well suited for extremely corrosive environments. Our fittings and connectors are used throughout the pharmaceutical, semiconductor, gas handling and chemical processing industries.

SPECIFICATIONS: Fitting Assembly

Pressure Ratings:

  • Performance at ambient room conditions: 120 psi for 1/16” fittings linear decreasing to 80 psi for up to 3/4” fittings and 60 psi for fittings larger than 3/4”.
  • Performance at elevated temperatures up to 85ºC/185ºF: 90 psi for 1/16” fittings linear decreasing to 60 psi for up to 3/4” fittings and 40 psi for fittings larger than 3/4”.
  • Contact factory for pressure temperature ratings above 85ºC / 185ºF.

Materials of Construction

  • Fittings: Machined from virgin Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE).
  • Ferrules: Ferrules are machined from virgin Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE).
  • Grippers: The Gripper in the two piece Ferrule-Gripper assemblies are manufactured from PVDF.
  • Nuts: The “HA” style nuts are molded PVDF. The “TA” style nuts are machined from PTFE and include an external anodized aluminum band. “TS” style nuts are also machined from PTFE but include an external stainless steel band.

Pressure Performance Rating

  • Pressure performance ratings are based on laboratory testing, industry standard material characteristics and historical data. A combination of extreme temperature and pressure may affect these products. It is recommended that the user satisfy themselves as to the suitability of these products for their application.

Typical Ordering Format

MC-F-86-HA

HA = Injection Molded PVDF (HA is standard / default / if left blank HA is assumed)
TA = Teflon Nut with Outer Aluminum Anodized Band
TS = Teflon Nut with Outer Stainless Steel Band

MC = Indicates Type of Fitting Example: MC-F-86-HA = Male Connector

F = Indicates Connection Size Example: MC-F-86-HA = Male Connector

F = Fractional Size Tube Fitting
M = Metric Size Tube Fitting
P = Pipe Fitting
FF = Fractional Flared

86 = Indicates Fractional Size of Connection Fractional Size to connect 1/2” O.D Tubing to 3/8” MNPT, PVDF Nut

Tube O.D., FNPT, MNPT, or Flared I.D
Example: 6 = 6/16” (3/8”), O.D
6 = 6mm Tube O.D (for metric integer represents mm size)
6 = 3/8 Flared I.D (for imperial integer represent 1/16" increment)

NOTES:

Tube O.D or Flare O.D is Listed Before NPT Size Indicates Fitting Category

Exceptions to above ordering procedure Barbed, Bugle, and Mini Fittings
