Premium Barbed Fittings

Premium Barbed Fittings

Ark-Plas Premium Barbed Fittings are manufactured with critical-use applications in mind. Each fitting is molded using proprietary technology that allows for a barb with no parting line. This means the most crucial sealing point on each piece is entirely seamless, eliminating common molding imperfections such as vertical flash or mismatch. All standard Ark-Plas Premium Barbed Fittings are manufactured with the following key features:

-  100% virgin base material
-  100% Visually Inspected
-  Product Certification Available (by request)
-  No Parting Line on Barb
-  Distinctive, Easy to Grip Body

Ark-Plas Premium Barbed Fittings are available in two styles:

Standard – The Standard Premium Barb is designed to accommodate most types of flexible tubing. Tubing is expanded 40% to 50% above nominal ID value. Standard Premium Barbs hold up to 125 PSI without the use of tubing clamps.

Hard-Line – The Hard-Line Premium Barb is designed for use with semi-rigid tubing. This barb is also popular for low-pressure, flexible-tubing applications, or when easy assembly is required. Tubing is expanded 21% above nominal ID value. Semi-rigid tubing used in conjunction with Ark-Plas Hard-Line Barbs can hold up to 125 PSI without the use of tubing clamps.
