Special fittings allow for our connector to be used with many liquid distribution system. Plastic tubes (or “hoses”) used to link to distributions systems must be placed over a multiple barb link fitting at the end of the connector. Vitop supplies its Standard S-Connector with a straight end fitment but we can also supply “L” or “T” versions. Our end fitments are designed to fit 10 mm diameter tubes. We can also supply, upon request, versions of our connector with a straight end fitment adapted to 13 mm tubes. Only the Standard connector with a straight end fitting can be ordered via the Shop page of our website.
For special end fittings, please contact us for prices and availability.
