MPC Series couplings are offered in two flow path sizes: 0.210 inch, for 1/4-inch ID tubing; and 0.290 inch for 3/8-inch ID tubing. MPX Series couplings, available in polycarbonate, are available in 0.500 inch flow and possess the same attributes as MPC Series couplings. Nu-Seal DSM coupling inserts are made from polyethylene and are for high-volume disposable applications such as irrigation sets, disposable tourniquets, and blood-pressure cuffs.
