this is what i want to buy,but brass version is MUCH,MUCH cheaper.as i can only shop from amazon.com,i can't get bitspower compression fitting.will this parker compression fitting be able to replace the cheap 1/2'' plastic barbs on the swiftech micro rez? im planning on replacing the plastic barb with that parker compression fitting and 1/2'' o-ring seal and running a tight 7/16'' ID tubing over it after some heating/boiling for virtually no leak system
Yea, the threads are not your normal Lowes or Ace hardware threads.
Your link you show isn't the right ID or OD on the compression fitting, and it's made for copper or very very hard plastic tubing. And the threads are NOT G1/4 where you would screw it in.
Thr difference is the PSI load the part can take. Also the stainless can be used in food environments and some pretty corrosive liquids. Meaning an industrial application, what this stuff is for, not a PC.
Buy two bitspower barbs and two cheap hoseclamps. You don't need comp fittings.
Search for Danger Den too. I tried. Never mind. You gotta get away from Amazon dude. There are MANY great WC stores you can buy from.
