A History of Excellence

Founded in 1953, Alkon has built a reputation for excellence through years of dedication and commitment to delivering superior products. Their focus on research and development has enabled them to stay ahead of the competition and introduce cutting-edge solutions for the transportation sector.

Introducing All-Brass PTC Fittings

One of Alkon’s most significant contributions to the industry has been the introduction of our all-brass Push-to-Connect (PTC) fittings. These fittings have revolutionized the way connections are made in various applications. Unlike traditional fittings, which may consist of a mix of materials, Alkon’s all-brass PTC fittings offer unmatched durability, reliability, and corrosion resistance.

As a prominent figure among the major producers of brass push-to-connect (PTC) fittings within the United States, we hold a distinguished position, being among a select few global enterprises equipped with the advanced capabilities required for manufacturing lapped spool valves. This particular line of products is just one among the extensive range of valves we offer, and can be found in applications across diverse industries on a global scale.

The decision to use brass, a material known for its strength and resistance to wear, demonstrates our commitment to providing products that stand the test of time. By utilizing all-brass construction, we ensure that our fittings can withstand harsh operating conditions and extreme temperatures without compromising performance.

Meeting Department of Transportation (DOT) Specifications

In an industry where safety is paramount, adherence to regulations and standards is non-negotiable. Alkon took the lead by becoming one of the first companies to introduce all-metal PTC fittings that meet the stringent Department of Transportation (DOT) truck specifications. This achievement is a testament to our dedication to producing fittings that not only excel in performance but also comply with industry standards to ensure safety.

An Innovative Approach to Fitting Design

One of the hallmarks of our success is our innovative approach to fitting design. We recognized the need for a better way for fittings to grip tubing securely. By investing in research and engineering, we developed a groundbreaking solution that provides enhanced gripping power, reducing the likelihood of leaks or disconnections.

Through rigorous testing and iterative design processes, we have perfected our fittings, ensuring they consistently deliver exceptional results in the most demanding conditions. This level of innovation has garnered a growing number of product patents for us, solidifying our position as pioneers and leaders in the industry.

Proudly Made in the USA
