Hose Barb Fittings

Avoid leaks from your pneumatic system’s connection points with secure barb fittings from Coast Pneumatics.

Barb fittings are cylindrical parts with one or more raised ridges, or barbs, used to grip a tube’s inside diameter and create an air-tight seal. The grip and connection seal occur when a tube is mated with the fitting. Barb fittings allow for easy push-connection and become difficult to disconnect.

Barb fittings are available in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and materials with differing levels of flexibility to meet the needs of many industries, including medical, food processing, oil and gas, petrochemical, automotive, marine, aerospace and industrial processing. Barbs may be spaced evenly or with extra space behind, between or in front of each barb. Barb slope and depth, gripping edge sharpness, barb number and barb spacing contribute to the product’s gripping and sealing ability.

Poor barb selection can cause a leak that shuts down multi-million dollar operations. To obtain the best connection, choose a barb fitting that correctly matches the tube’s inside diameter. Find the right barb fitting for your process with assistance from our customer service team, which is available at all hours. We seek to understand each consumer's needs and challenges personally before offering high-value, dependable solutions.
