Eco-friendly push-fit water fittings from Parker

When choosing push-fit water fittings for any type of water-based application, you want to be absolutely certain that your fittings will not only deliver leak-free performance but will do so without any danger of contaminating the end product. Parker LIQUIfit fittings deliver massively on both counts, with patented sealing technology and a sustainable plant-sourced polymer construction that is as clean as it is green. Read on to find out more.

Parker push-fit pipe fittings offer an intuitive method of connecting tubes to a fitting. Not only do they score highly for improving machine efficiency but they are also incredibly easy to install, offer unbeatable leak-free performance and – in the case of their LIQUIfit push-to-connect water fittings especially – are thoughtfully designed using genuinely eco-friendly, sustainable materials.

Parker LIQUIfit fittings from Fluid Controls are purer than pure, in every sense!

Parker LIQUIFIT push-fit water fittings

LIQUIfit push-fit pipe fittings from Parker are designed specifically for water applications.

With a BPA-free polymer tube body made from renewable plant sources (really!), Parker LIQUIfit fittings promise total environmental protection with zero threat of water contamination.

Parker’s patented sealing design ensures a 100% leak-free seal at all times, while push-in connection technology and easy-to-clean surfaces make LIQUIfit push-fit pipe fittings a joy to handle. What’s more, Parker LIQUIfit fittings also deliver excellent chemical and mechanical resistance (even at high temperatures) and employ a patented gripping system that prevents any pumping effect whatsoever.
