Barbed mender fittings are using when installing flexible tubing for either gasses or liquids. Made out of 304 stainless steel, it is durable and resistant to most chemicals. They are incredibly helpful when trying to lengthen or join two lines without having to replace the entire tubing.
- 316 Stainless Steel
- Menders are not for compressible products such as air, nitrogen or steam
- The working pressure may vary with the construction of the hose, the type of clamping system used and the application. Consult Dixon for recommendations.
- In accordance with the R.M.A. bulletin for oil suction and discharge hose, a coupled length of hose in any size should be tested to 1-1/2 times the working pressure and held for fifteen minutes without leaking or coupling movement. For additional information and detailed instructions on testing procedures, see the Rubber Manufacturers Association (R.M.A.) handbook.
