The Parker A-Lok PC-316 port connector fitting is made of stainless steel 316 and has tube connectors. This port connector fitting connects pipes or fittings with different end types, diameters, or materials. It is a push-to-connect fitting that accepts the insertion of nylon, soft nylon and polyurethane tube fittings. It is made of stainless steel for resistance to scaling and corrosion. The operating temperatures for this fitting range from -425 to 1200 degrees F, and it uses imperial unit measurements for industry consistency and interchangeability.
Pipe fittings are components used for connecting, terminating, controlling flow, and changing the direction of piping in many different industries. Push-to-connect compression fittings do not require tools or sealants, and are useful in installations where a heat source, such as a soldering torch, is prohibited. When purchasing pipe fittings, consider the application, as this will affect material type, shape, size, and required durability. Fittings are available threaded or unthreaded, in many shapes, styles, sizes, and schedules (pipe wall thickness).
