Union Tees

Union Tees
Compression type metallic fittings have a loose ferrule which requires extra assembly. JACO has been able to mold the sleeve as an integral part of the nut, eliminating the need for a two-piece assembly. Although fittings were originally developed for copper tubing, other fittings were then later engineered with plastic grippers for plastic tubing.

Today, JACO fittings are widely used with all types of tubing including copper, plastic, aluminum and glass.
We offer four different plastic resins for a range of applications dealing with temperatures, acids and chemicals. JACO plastic fittings offer these additional advantages:

Good electrical insulating qualities which eliminate electrolytic action that usually corrodes tubing when dissimilar metal meets a fitting. The ability to absorb mechanical and acoustical vibrations because of the low density and softness of plastic. An inherently low resistance to flow, due to smooth internal surface. A resistance to scale buildup.

JACO fittings are available in size ranges from 1/8" through 7/8" tube O.D. in all common figurations, such as union, bulkhead, male and female connectors, male branch and male run tees, tee unions and ferrule nuts. Metric sizes are also available on a special order basis.

Various resins are used, depending on the application. JACO plastic fittings are made of either nylon, acetal copolymer, polypropylene, or polyvinylidene fluoride.
