PUSH-IN FITTINGS FOR USE IN THE FOOD INDUSTRY

SERIES F-E / SERIES F-NSF PUSH-IN FITTINGS FOR USE IN THE FOOD INDUSTRY

These fittings are made of materials suitable for use in the food industry.

They can also be used with hot and cold tap water.

All brass component parts undergo a clean-lead process, which consists

of removing lead from the surface layer of the fitting; the gaskets are

made of special FDA-approved Viton

®

. These fittings do not contain

technopolymers, thereby avoiding problems of compatibility with

detergents and other chemical agents. This choice of materials allows the

fittings to be used up to 150°C, which makes them suitable for other high-

temperature applications, in addition to the food industry.

The threads are cylindrical and under-head O-rings provide a pneumatic

seal. This avoids the need for sealants (e.g. Teflon

®

), which could release

solid fragments during screwing and unscrewing that would contaminate

the environment or the fluid. Our fittings can be screwed and unscrewed

any number of times and still remain clean and pneumatically sealed.

This choice of materials and treatments make these fittings suitable for use

in the chemical, pharmaceutical, medical and electronics industry.

The fittings are available in two series:

• Series

F-E

fittings are made of brass that undergoes a surface clean-lead

process, followed by a surface coating with inter-metal alloy compound;

they comply with regulatory standards applicable in Europe and other

world countries for use in contact with foodstuffs or drinking water.

• Series

F-NSF

fittings are made of brass with a low-lead content (≤ 0.2%)

that undergoes a further surface clean-lead process in compliance with US

standards, and are certified to NSF169 and NSF61 standards.

A standard range of fittings is available, but other designs can be developed

on specific request.
