FITTINGS DIVISION

JACO understands the needs of the plastics industry from knowing how businesses operate to in-depth engineering design and applications. For more than 65 years we have constantly looked for ways to make plastic parts better. And we've developed solutions in new technologies, equipment and products that have been solid contributors to industry.

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, stainless steel 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 most 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. (PVDF)

Nylon Bushings, Collars, and Washers are Available in Many Sizes – Contact the Factory for a Quote: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
