Tube Support Inserts, also known as compression inserts, act to support soft types of tubing. Fresh Water Systems offers tubing inserts in a variety of sizes and materials, including acetal, polypropylene, kynar, nylon, and brass.
Advantages of JACO Fittings over metal compression fittings:
Good electrical insulating qualities. This eliminates the electrolytic action that corrodes tubing, caused by a dissimilar metal meeting a fitting.
Low density and softness of plastic gives JACO fittings the ability to absorb mechanical and acoustical vibrations.
Low resistance to flow due to the smooth internal surface of the fittings.
Resistance to scale buildup.
Resistant to highly corrosive fluids and UV; Meets FDA stanadard and NSF listed
Resistant to wide range of temperatures; Strong and lightweight
Resistant to chemicals; NSF 61 listed
Resistant to organic solvents, oils, gasoline, impact, and weather; Meets FDA standard and NSF listed
Kynar Tube Support Inserts
Kynar is a resin that is resistant to highly corrosive fluids and UV light. This material meets FDA standards and NSF listed.
