Fluid Gaming EK-ACF ALU Fitting 10/13mm - BlueEK-ACF ALU Fittings (Advanced Compression Fitting) are 10/13 soft-tube compression fittings designed for use with flexible soft tubing. With a high-quality finish, the EK-ACF Fittings are an aesthetically appealing and secure option for your cooling loop. The locking ring prevents the flexible tube from being pulled out of the fitting by compressing the tubing wall underneath the ring. EK-ACF ALU is a secure variant of the tubing fitting connector as the locking ring prevents flexible tube to be pulled out of the fitting. The locking ring compresses the tubing wall underneath the ring and it does not require any hose clamp or similar substitute. This makes it aesthetically more appealing than the ordinary barb fitting.
EK-ACF ALU Fittings
The barb and locking ring are made of high-grade CNC machined aluminum and the fitting features a quality rubber O-ring. The locking ring has a flawless and even coloring with a process called anodization. The EK-ACF ALU fitting is fully compatible with EK-AF ALU series 45° and 90° angled adapters.
These fittings are characterized by a low-profile design and do not have any finger grip surface. It is recommended to use an Allen Key 8mm (not included, available for separate purchase) to prevent skin damage to fingertips while securing the fitting.
