JONES 110™ Compression Connection (Super Grip) Features ɡ NUT - corrosion resistant cast bronze ASTM B584 (85-5-5-5) or Low Lead. ɡ TWO DESIGNS conductive compression connection fits type "K" copper tubing and CTS O.D. PE plastic tubing. A separate design fits IPS PE plastic pipe. Recommended stainless steel liners for plastic tubing and pipe available. ɡ CONDUCTOR SPRING - provides metal-to-metal contact between copper tubing and fitting for electrical conductivity. ɡ NUT - bottoms out on shoulder of coupling to give quick visual indication of proper tightening. ɡ ENTIRE GASKET - is enclosed to resist cold flow and creep. ɡ GASKET - compresses concave gripper band and seals against fitting body, pipe and nut. Uniform pressure is applied around the concave gripper, forcing each outer edge to grip the pipe for pull-out resistance. ɡ AMIDE WAX COATING - on the thread surface reduces tightening efforts. ɡ PRESSURE RATING The pressure holding capability of the JONES 110™ Compression Connection (Super Grip) is designed to be greater than that of the valve or fitting on which it is used (only in potable water distribution applications complying with AWWA standards). ɡ GRIPPER BAND - is stainless steel and overlaps itself so no gasket material can get underneath. *See charts on pages 13-14 for tubing and pipe that may be used with these connections.
