With automation and medical-device applications being miniaturized, there is a demand for smaller-size tubing and fittings.
Miniature polyurethane tubing
The Series TU/M 2-mm OD polyurethane tubing and fittings are available in seven standard colors (black, blue, white, red, yellow, green, and clear) in 20-m rolls. The tubing's 4-mm bending radius permits use in hard-to-reach places. Maximum operating pressure at 68°F is 116 psi. Four new fitting configurations are also available: Straight and elbow-style barbed fittings with metric threads and a unique collar to hold the tubing on the barb; barb to one-touch unions allow step down to smaller tubing sizes; and plug-in reducers for direct connection of the 2-mm tube to valve manifolds with builtin one-touch fittings.
