Jaco Nylon Compression Tube Union Connectors are strong and abrasion resistant with a working temperature range of -40F to 250F. Since nylon naturally absorbs water, they are typically not preferred for wet applications.
Nylon has good chemical resistance to organic solvents, oils, hydrocarbons and fuels, but have poor chemical resistance to strong acids and bases. Jaco Nylon fittings with plastic gripper have operating pressures up to 220 PSI. Jaco Nylon fittings are FDA and NSF listed.
Cut the end of the tubing squarely and remove internal and external burrs.
Insert the tubing through the back of the nut all the way through the nut assembly to the tube stop in the fitting body.
While holding the tubing firmly against the tube stop, hand tighten the nut.
Wrench tighten the nut 1-1/2 to 2 additional turns.
All nuts must be retightened when the system reached projected operating temperature.
Jaco Nylon Compression Tube Union Connectors are available in 1/4" to 7/8" OD sizes.
