FOOD QUALITY

All fittings in the John Guest Section with this symbol are produced in

Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved materials and are therefore

recommended for food quality applications.

FEATURES / BENEFITS

• Installation time reduced by at least 50%

• Lightweight, easy to handle

• Safe, secure, leakproof

• Easy to alter or extend a system

• No corrosion, reduced maintenance

TUBE TYPES

John Guest fittings are suitable for use with a wide range of plastic and

soft metal tubing including UPVC, ABS, Polyethylene, Nylon, Mild Steel

and Copper to the tolerances set out, to the right. Soft plastic tube, such

as nylon, is to have a minimum wall thickness of 1.5 mm. The tube should

also have a good quality surface and be damage free.

EASY TO USE PUSH-FIT SYSTEM FOR COMPRESSED AIR

The John Guest range of push-in fittings and pipe, provide the ideal connection from compressor receiver to air line service components, through to complete

ring main and take-off points. A compressed air system can be installed quickly and easily, compared with other installation methods; time savings of at least

50% are easily achievable.

There is no need to prepare threaded pipe or solvent, all the connections can be made with a simple push-in action. The system is then immediately ready for

use. Complex systems can be assembled much more rapidly than with traditional methods and because fittings are easy to disconnect, systems can be altered

or extended with much reduced production down-time. The fittings are produced in either a tough engineering plastic material or in brass, in sizes 12 mm to 28

mm. They are intended for use with John Guest Nylon pipe but can also be used with Copper or Aluminium pipe.
