The patent-pending Easy Port Capped Barb Fitting is a sampling port designed for liquids and gases under vacuum conditions or in low-pressure applications. Unlike standard barb fittings, the Easy Port includes a leak-tight, screw-on cap to seal the barb between uses. The cap also protects the barb from contamination and damage, and is tethered, so it cannot be dropped or lost. Made with tough, fiber-reinforced nylon for high strength, these barb fittings are also ultraviolet (UV) protected. The fittings’ heavy walls help to reduce heat loss and freezing. — QED Environmental Systems, Inc., Ann Arbor, Mich.
