These push in fittings have been engineered for maximised performance in both gas and liquid applications. Compared to other push in fittings on the market, duotight takes the double safety approach to all of the connections with two EPDM o-rings per hose port. No other push ins on the market have EPDM o-rings, let alone two! per push in connection.
What is EPDM? EPDM = Ethylene Propylene Rubber which has excellent chemical resistance including being compatible with ozone, oils, wide variety of alkaline and acid compounds, water, alcohol, ketone and beverages.
EPDM is also resistant to aging, weather and will not perish easily like other rubber compounds. When compared with silicon and vinyl EPDM has better gas transmission rates, better wear resistance, is BPA free and is the number one choice for many long lasting food grade applications.
Looking for high quality push in fittings that will seal tight? Look no further than duotight!
Duotight are the push in fittings with superior sealing capacity due to their double o-ring sealing design.
Why use Double O-rings? The secret to their superior sealing performance is not just the fact that duotight use high quality EPDM o-rings but also that there are two of them! The double o-ring means you literally have twice the sealing surface surface when compared with other push in fittings on the market. This makes duotight fittings even more reliable and reduces the chance of a leak significantly.
The double o-ring system also means that you can bend the hose with much tighter radius without causing leaking issues. This typically can be an issue with other fittings. This combination of factors makes duotight fittings the most reliable push fit fittings on the market.
