Description

This Duotight ball valve can be used as an inline shut off valve on draft lines. Compatible with EVABarrier 8 mm OD Tubing (D1717 & D1718).
 
Duotight fittings are high-quality push-in fittings that seal tight and offer superior sealing capacity due to the double O-ring sealing design.
 
High Performance Double O-Ring Design:
The secret to Duotight’s superior sealing performance comes from the fact that they use not one, but two high-quality EPDM O-rings.  The double O-ring means they have literally twice the sealing surface when compared with other push-in fittings.  This makes them more reliable and significantly reduces the chance of leakage.
 
The double O-ring system also means that tubing can be bent at a much tighter radius without causing leaking issues, which can be an issue with other fittings.  This combination of factors makes Duotight the most reliable push-in fittings on the market.
 
EPDM offers excellent chemical resistance for a longer life span. When compared with silicone and vinyl, EPDM has much better gas transmission rates, better wear resistance, and is BPA-free.
 
No Clamps Necessary!
We recommend cutting your tubing straight, not on an angle, to ensure the line forms a complete seal. To remove the fitting simply push in the collet and the hose can be removed.
 
Features:
  • Insert tubing and firmly push to connect
  • Easily release tubing by pushing in the collet
  • Suitable for both gas & beverage applications
  • Made from food-grade acetal plastic
  • Double O-rings made from highly chemical resistant EPDM
  • Locking teeth made from stainless steel
  • Pressure rated to 150 psi
  • Temperature rated to 212°F (100°C)
     

Please note: exposure to chlorine will degrade the acetal plastic and stainless steel these fittings are made from. Do not use in contact with bleach or other chlorinated cleaning chemicals.

Can this be used as a CO2 shutoff?
Guillermo Jimenez on Oct 29, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes it can, as long as you are connecting it to 8mm tubing. The tubing needs to be very round and free of defects. Tubing that is slightly oval in the cross section may leak and you will lose all of your CO2. This happens a lot when the tubing is coiled too tightly and stored or shipped in that state.
If I have this inline with a secondary regulator, do I also need a check valve?
Scherzinger Andy on Dec 23, 2020
BEST ANSWER: If you want to have a check valve you will need an extra one. This valve will allow flow in either and both directions at all times.

NEEDLE IN A HAYSTACK
The Bidet I was installing has hot and cold water. I located the cold water ball valve at a local DIY store, but the hot water hose was 8mm-5/16, which I could not find anywhere. Also, the hose hookup on the Bidet was 8mm as well, or I would have just changed it out completely. Searching endlessly until I came across MoreBeer website and I discovered exactly what I needed to complete my Bidet installation. Without the ball valves to control the water pressure, It is like a pressure washer hitting the bullseye. Not a pleasant experience. The DuoTight Push-in Fitting-8mm Ball Valve works great. Thanks MoreBeer, Two Thumbs up!

Perfect little valve
Easy way to connect EVA Barrier tubing. Perfect fitting to help me direct CO2 to purge kegs while fermenting or keep a keg under CO2 pressure while cold crashing.

Awesome affordable connections
These things are great. Instead of buying a 4 -way manifold, just use these fittings and some tubing to build your own for just a few bucks!
