Q. "What's the difference between "food grade" and non-food grade fittings? Do I have to use food grade fittings?"
A. All of the fittings featured above have been tested to withstand typical commercial kitchen and food preparation conditions, and are designed to meet FDA health and safety requirements for food contact surfaces - non-food grade fittings may or may not meet regulations set forth by the FDA or other licensing organizations.
That being said, we cannot tell you whether or not you must use food grade fittings for your particular application. You should check with your local licensing authorities before purchasing to determine what kind of fitting will meet your individual needs. However, we always recommend taking the highest precautions with any type of product that will come into contact with your food or drinking water and see no reason not to purchase food-grade fittings for these types of applications.
Q. "How are the barbed adapters sized?"
A.They are sized by the barbed fitting outside diameter which fits into the I.D.(inside diameter) of the tubing or hose.
