Why did you go with Alphacool?

Who makes those fittings? They are chinese home market?

I am working with Alphacool, and I wanted to try the new glass tubing smile.gif But didn't want their fittings because they only are available in silver or black.


Mm, yes, those are from the Chinese market, their own design... Fittings says 16mm, and Alphacool tubes are exactly 16mm (measured them).

I still hope for the o-ring solution. I will try to call local companies if they might have. Also reached out to my contact with Alphacool to see if they have spare o-rings I could try. What do you believe B neg, do you believe it's possible to use Alphacool's o-rings with those fittings, or any other o-ring? Please please, give me some hope biggrin.gif Otherwise I won't be able to sleep tonight axesmiley.png

You could try a larger thickness o ring,YMMV tho....

Find out what the stock oring is and just up the thickness,not the ID/OD

Thanks! Any tips on how to measure? smile.gif I tried and it's difficult, but sort of got it to 16/19.5mm.

And thanks again man! I know how busy you are since you are a true professional, so I deeply appreciate you taking your time. I did not know that I should add thickness and not change the ID so now I know thumb.gif

Soryry,let me be more clear,the ID/OD will change slightly based on the o ring thickness but try to keep it close,if anything change the ID and not the OD.

What may help is to look up o rings online and get the size charts . . .

In metric, the cross section is exactly what the spec is . . typically 1 or 1.5mm, possibly 2mm in some cases for fittings o rings.

If you have 16 X 19, that would be a 16mm ID with a 1.5mm cross section.

You may want to look at imperial size o rings, where the cross section is actually a bit larger than the nominal spec, ie 1/16" is a bit thicker to allow for some squish in an o ring groove.

You may get better grip on the tubing with 1/16" cross section o rings if they were originally 1.5mm.

You'll also have to work out the diameter conversion, but for 16mm, 5/8" ID is the near exact imperial equivalent.


If the original o rings are 2mm, you may be able to get 3/32" cross section imperial ones in their place . . .

This is one of those situations where you study the size charts, order several options to try, and hopefully, come up with one that actually works.

Hi gang, just cleaned up my loop and thought about changing to parallel. Here's a few pics, what do you think?
