Our Single Barb Fittings Features and Clamp
The threads are molded in precision-ground cavities resulting in perfectly
matched threads at the parting line. This produces the cleanest, most accurate
molded thread possible.
Why our fittings are better.
Our single-barbed fittings are designed so the mold parting line stops at the
base of the barb. The ridge and the barb's conical surface are free of the
molded-in leak path
present in multiple barb fittings. The conical surface is glass-like
and smooth allowing excellent sealing.
The straight barb shaft provides space for the hose to relax behind the barb
causing the clamp
to work like a drawstring. This forces the hose diameter to become smaller than
the flare of the
fitting's barb. If the tubing swells from internal pressure (near burst), the
clamp will be pulled
up tight to the back of the barb and a tight seal will be maintained.
