AutomationDirect has added new tubing and hose options to its Nitra line of pneumatic components, including bonded straight and coiled styles.

Available in 50-foot lengths, Nitra bonded polyurethane tubing is made by a continuous bonding process, resulting in a strong, organized, color-coded package with flexibility and kink resistance. The shore A 98 hardness rating provides tight outside diameter tolerance, making it ideal for use with NITRA push-to-connect fittings.

Nitra polyurethane coiled tubing has also been added. Coiled tubing is available in single, double, and triple bonded configurations with double and triple coils in contrasting colors.

The addition of pneumatic air hoses includes reinforced polyurethane straight, as well as coiled and reinforced coiled styles. Available in quarter-inch and 3/8-inch sizes, the hoses are fitted with one rigid and one swivel fitting, based on hose inside diameter.

Reinforced polyurethane hose comes in 25 and 50 foot packages. With a shore A 85 hardness rating, the hose is strong, flexible and kink resistant.

Nitra coiled and reinforced coiled hoses are available in eight, 12 and 16-foot working lengths. Coiled hose has a shore A 98 hardness rating while the reinforced coiled hose has a shore A 85 hardness rating.
