Tubing VS Compression Fittings

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Why is 1/2 3/4 Monsoon compression fittings so tight on my 1/2 ID 3/4 OD Primochill Advanced LRT tubings?

It's so tight when the fitting top is sliding along the tube. I have watched videos where the fitting slide easily along the tubing.

Furthermore when i am trying to screw them in, it is giving me such a difficult time. Is compression fittings meant to be this way?

There's too things involved, the tolerance spec of the monsoon's compression ring and the typical variation of tubing from batch to batch. You probably got unlucky on either end or both, though I would lean towards Primochill tubing being larger. I've had large variations in their tubing myself. Some slip on easily and others need a death grip to squeeze them on.

I read that Monsoon fittings are more snug than most.

Better they are too snug than too loose?

Hi - I'm having the same issue with my Monsoons on PrimoFlex tubing. I hope it's the tubing being too large vs. the fittings being too small. How did you get past this?
post #7 of 7
I had a similar issue. I use both Bitspower and Monsoon in my loop, and the PrimoFlex Advanced tubing would easilygo oover the Monsoon barbs, but the collars were tight. Ironically, it was the exact opposite with the Bitspower. I ended up leaving the tubing on the Bitspower barbs overnight, and in the morning I pulled out the ones that were for the Monsoons, and attached the fittings to the tubing outside of the case. I was able to do this because almost every fitting in my loop connects to a rotary of some type, so I could screw the fittings in with the tubing already attached.
