The barbed brass fittings by Polyconn are made of 360CA brass and are used in industrial markets like water, air, and low pressure applications. Hose barbs are typically used with rubber hose or thermoplastic hose, and even in some cases polyurethane tubing. Typical working pressure for hose barb fittings is 150 PSI. However it is important to note the pressure rating of the hose or tubing being used. Polyconn always recommends the use of hose clamps or other retention devices to secure the hose to the barb fitting.
- Inexpensive connections for hose.
- Can be supplied with pipe sealant on male fittings.
