The technical database search function is not intended as a design tool, but to provide guidance regarding the possible selection options for tube materials and fittings types for given example applications.
For a particular system, the search function can be used to select an appropriate combination of tubes and fittings that are typically available within the UK market, and then allows you to choose from a list of possible suppliers for these products, or who to contact if you required additional supporting information or confirmation of product suitability.
