Which Pipe Fittings To Use

Medium Density Fittings

Used for:

  • Medium Density Pipe
    • Blueline
      • SKU: 2500-(OD Pipe Size)PN12-5-(Coil Length)
      • e.g 2500-25PN12-5-100 (25mm = OD size, PN12.5 = Bar, 100 = Coil Length)
    • Redline
      • SKU: 360-(OD Pipe Size)PN(Bar Rate)-(Coil Length)
      • e.g 360-63PN9-100 (63mm = OD size, PN9 = Bar, 100 = Coil Length)
    • Greenline
      • SKU: 370-(OD Pipe Size)PN(Bar Rate)-(Coil Length)
      • e.g 370-32PN8-100 (32mm = OD size, PN8 = Bar, 100 = Coil Length)

Tips:

  • Medium-density pipe is referred to by its outside diameter (OD)
  • Medium Density Fittings go overtop of MD Pipe
  • The pipe needs to be pushed past the o-ring in the MD fitting to seal
  • If the MD pipe is scratched or gouged, it may not create a seal on the o-ring and leak.
  • Use tools to tighten
