This Banjo HB050-90 barbed hose 90-degree elbow is made of glass-reinforced polypropylene and has a 1/2" barbed connection on one end and a 1/2" male NPT threaded connection on the other to connect a tube or a hose to a female NPT threaded connection at a 90-degree angle to change the direction of flow. This schedule 80 elbow is made of glass-reinforced polypropylene for rigidity, lightweight, dimensional stability, and resistance to high impact, heat, corrosion, and most chemicals. The barbed connection creates a tight seal on a tube or hose, and the male National Pipe Taper (NPT) threaded end connects with a female NPT threaded connection. The integral 15/16" hex nut provides a gripping surface for a wrench when tightening the fitting. The maximum working pressure for this fitting is 150 pounds per square inch (psi) at 70 degrees F. This barbed hose elbow is suitable for use in agricultural and industrial systems for liquid flow applications.
Hose fittings connect, control, change the direction of, and terminate the flow in piping and hose systems. They are made of brass, stainless steel, galvanized steel, and other materials that resist corrosion, pressure, and wear. Hose fittings have various types of connections, including threaded, barbed, push-to-connect, dry disconnect, and others including those based on internationally-accepted specifications. Hose fittings are used in systems such as air compressors, automatic manufacturing operations, aircraft controls, and tire installation in industries including agriculture, mining, road construction, firefighting, and aviation.
Banjo manufactures valves, couplings, pumps, pipe and hose fittings, and other fluid handling products for industrial applications. The company, founded in 1995, is headquartered in Crawfordsville, IN.
