What is the OD of this barb 1/2" or 5/8"? Does 1/2" silicone tubing fit loose or tight on it? I want a "snug" fit and use a hose clamp, not a tight fit and struggle to remove the hose from the barb. Trying to determine if I need 3/8" or 1/2" barbs.
Ryan Gibson on May 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: OD is a little larger than 9/16". The fit is snug on H985, our 1/2" silicone tubing.
Will this work with 1/2" PEX tubing?
Norman Kilarjian on Apr 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This will work with PEX tubing if you heat the PEX up to stretch it over the barb.

It’s schedule 80, I would have preferred schedule 40. The walls would be thinner and the hole larger.

Worked perfectly but the description is confusing and incorrect. It is 1/2” MPT and with 1/2” barb. Fits 1/2” silicon tubing.

Great piece of equipment.
I use these on my kettle and pump setup with no issues. They hold well to the silicone tubing I use.

No problems
Been using this for a while on the ball valve off my kettle for draining the wort to the fermenter. No problems.
