Bitspower multi-link fittings question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm curious on how Bitspower multi-link fittings work. I currently have Bitspower with tube fittings but would like to try Acrylic.

How does does the Bitspower multi-link fittings work? Does it tighten up around the tube? Does it need to be perfectly cut?

You would need to replace all fittings that are compression, any that are just angled rotary withOUT a built in compression fitting on it can be re-used.
Read through this thread, http://www.overclock.net/t/1388300/acrylic-pipebending-101 alot of good info in here.
If you are wanting to use the Bitspower sli multi-link fittings, you would need E22 tubing or the EK 12mm OD tubing Everything on the first page is what you would need for fittings ect.
You do need to put alot of work into the friction fit fittings ie c47/8 fittings. Cut square and sanded/smoothed out.

The primochill tubing and fittings work similar to the compressions like you have now. Their fittings work with angled/rotary adapters too. Easier to work with IMO.
Any other questions in general, ask in that thread. Plenty of people have used either or type of acrylic. thumb.gif

REP+ thanks for the info. I'm leaning towards Bitspower multi-link fittings instead of Primochills fittings.

Are the multi-link fittings secure?
