Tube Insert Supports


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.
