AIGNEP - Alpha Technologies

AIGNEP Alpha Technologies LogoAIGNEP fittings (formerly known as Alpha Technologies) is a leader in the production of fittings, solenoid valves and cylinders.  The whole production process is made in Italy and we supply our products in more than 90 countries in the world.  HJ Kirby Corp. carries a number of different lines of AIGNEP products, including SWIFT FIT Universal Fittings and PUSH FIT fittings. 

The Swift-Fit Universal thread was engineered to work with both inch & metric thread systems. The Swift Fit universal thread eliminates the need to distinguish between tapered, straight, Inch, or metric thread.

If you try to use an inch thread fitting on a metric port or vice versa, you'll strip the thread causing component damage. However, Swift Fit fittings are compatible with NPT, BSPP, BSPT, tapered and parallel threads. How is this possible?!?!?!  Each of these thread patterns have a unique thread count, but the beginning of the thread is very similar. The Swift-Fit product utilizes the similarities along with an o-ring to ensure a proper seal without damaging either the fitting or the component.

Push-Fit fittings are reusable push-to-connect fittings that are ideal for compressed air, inert gas, and water applications. Their biggest advantage is simplicity – simply push Push-Fit on any NPTF or BSPP tubing port and Push-Fit's universal thread will provide leak-free performance. No more stripped fittings or ports.

Unlike traditional push-to-fit fittings, Push-Fit fittings do not require Teflon tape or thread sealant. Push-Fit uses an innovative Buna seal that is universally compatible, completely reusable, and unquestionably leak-free.  Each fitting features a corrosion-resistant nickel-plated brass housing and a composite thrust ring for long-lasting durability. Push-fit fittings are compatible with any tubing material: nylon, polyethylene, polyurethane, and copper. They are even color-coded to make installation even easier.
