Hose Barb

A Barb Connector or Hose Barb is the Section of a Fitting or Component Connected to a Piece of Hose or Tubing by being Inserted into that Hose or Tubing.

Hose Barbed Fittings are Widely Used in Low Pressure
(about 200psi or lower).

They can be Used with Fluid, Gas and Air Flow Control Applications. The Barb Serration or Ridge Grips the Interior Wall of the Tubing and Provides a Sealing Surface Without Damaging the Tubing Wall.

Key Takeaways About Hose Barb Adapter Connectors:

  • Works best with softer tubing

  • Usually lower cost than many other types of fitting connections

  • Can be more difficult to disconnect than push-in (push-to-connect) fittings

  • Are Better Suited for Environments and Applications That Need to Minimize Leakage

  • Matching tubing to barb is based on the tubing inside diameter (ID) and its durometer
