Ferrule installation is a process that joins two pieces of tubing together using a ferrule. The ferrule is inserted over the end of one of the tubes and crimped in place. This creates a watertight seal and secures the tubing in place.
How To Install Ferrule On Plastic Tubing
Installing a ferrule on plastic tubing is a relatively easy process. The first step is to measure the length of the tubing that needs to be fitted with a ferrule.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Do You Install Plastic Ferrules?
You install plastic ferrules the same way you install metal ferrules. First, cut the tubing to the desired length with a tubing cutter. Next, use a deburring tool to remove any burrs from the end of the tubing. Finally, insert the ferrule into the end of the tubing and use a crimping tool to crimp it in place.
Can You Use A Brass Ferrule On Plastic Tubing?
Yes, a brass ferrule can be used on plastic tubing, but it is not recommended. A brass ferrule is more likely to damage the plastic tubing than a plastic ferrule.
Which Way Do You Put A Ferrule?
Ferrule installation is counter-clockwise.
In The End
Ferrule installation on plastic tubing is a straightforward process that can be completed in just a few minutes. First, make sure that the tubing is clean and free of debris. If necessary, use a mild detergent to clean the surface. Next, use a sharp knife or scissors to cut the tubing to the desired length. Make sure to remove any burrs or sharp edges from the cut end. Finally, slide the ferrule over the end of the tubing and press firmly until it is fully seated.
