Determining Connection Type
Fittings, luers and couplings are the most common tubing connectors. While each is appropriate for certain types of applications, they are not necessarily interchangeable; it’s important to specify the connector that satisfies your specific application requirements.
The type of media flowing through a connection can affect the strength, surface appearance, color and performance of the connection.
Certain o-ring materials offer better chemical resistance while others offer better heat resistance or cold flexibility within your application. For specific chemical properties, refer to our Chemical Compatibility Guide.
