New Hydromode fittings are suitable for municipal water and brewing applications

AutomationDirect has launched a new line of push-to-connect fittings and tubing designed for potable water and beverage systems, including brewing and municipal/residential water treatment.

HydroMode push-to-connect fittings are suitable for use with polyethylene and other flexible tubing, and all fittings are made of NSF approved materials with NSF-51 and NSF-61 certifications.

Rated for up to 145psi at 70°C, the body and collet of the fittings are made from acetal, while the O-rings are made of synthetic rubber.

The fittings also feature optional retaining clips that prevent accidental tube removal.

Made in the US, HydroMode polyethylene (PE) tubing, available in 100 to 1,000ft packages, is designed for use with potable water and beverages.

The tubing is NSF-61 certified, has a Shore A 98 hardness rating, and works well with HydroMode push-to-connect fittings.

HydroMode reinforced PVC hose incorporates a polyester spiraled yarn, which allows it to be used in higher pressure applications.

The Shore A 73-rated hose provides good chemical resistance and is flexible and lightweight, and it is phthalate-free and NSF 61 certified.

AutomationDirect has also added additional NITRA brass fittings to its portfolio.

Machined from quality brass bar stock, they work well with air, water, oil, oxygen, nitrogen, and argon.

With a maximum pressure of 800psi, fittings are available in most popular styles and sizes, and all have NPT threaded connections.
