Courtesy: AutomationDirAutomationDirect's line of tubing and fittings to its NITRA line of pneumatic components has been expanded with tubing and fittings, as well as blow guns and aluminum manifolds.

Available in 100-foot and 250-foot lengths, Nitra 16mm polyurethane tubing has a shore A 98 hardness rating, provides outside diameter tolerance and kink resistance. The ether-based tubing provides hydrolysis, oil and cold resistance. 

Nitra brass adapter fittings and plugs are available in 10 styles to meet most pneumatic applications such as air, water, oil, oxygen, nitrogen, and argon. Machined from yellow brass bar stock or forging, the fittings withstand pressure up to 800 psi. Designed with NPT threaded connections, male and female connectors are available in 1/8-inch to ½-inch sizes, in either two-pack or five-pack quantities.

Also added are quick-disconnect fittings which allow easy changing of tools or hose connections. Plugs and couplers, in ¼-inch and 3/8-inch sizes, are available in Industrial Interchange manual or automatic and universal automatic styles. Male and female fittings are NPT threaded and withstand pressure up to 250 psi. Swivel fittings made of chrome-plated steel with maximum pressure of 145 psi are also available.

Nitra aluminum manifolds withstand maximum pressure up to 500 psi and are available in two styles. Round manifolds feature one 3/8-inch NPT threaded input and either two or three ¼-inch NPT outputs. Rectangular manifolds have ½-inch NPT inputs on either end and have either three or five ¼-inch NPT outputs.

Nitra blowguns (or nozzles) are available in heavy-duty palm type with safety tip, pistol grips (aluminum and plastic models), pocket, and plastic grip with flexible nozzles in various lengths. Additional Nitra accessories include ½” thread sealant tape and a two-inch tubing cutter.
