Value Plastics, a Nordson Company, introduces the BPL Series of tubing connectors. This new quick connect fitting offers superior ergonomics - a requirement for many designers in their effort to accommodate end users. The BPL's ease-of-use stems largely from a winged male fitting and Value Plastics' patented 10-point grip, making the quarter-turn connection simple and easy to accomplish. A solid snap, that can be both heard and felt, will then reassure the end user that a secure fit has been made.
Another unique characteristic of the BPL Series is the true tube stop on the rotating half of the two connectors. This allows tubing to be fully assembled onto the barb without its edge pushing against the body of the connector. It is this contact that hampers the rotation of the barb, causing the tubing to kink and twist. The connectors also include an o-ring that assures a tight seal, and barb sizes of 1/8" (3.2mm) and 5/32" (4.0mm). The medical grade ABS material withstands bulk sterilization processes and holds up under demanding application conditions.
