any plumbers here?

I'm looking for a fitting for a pump with plastic 1/2 inch male threads on it. So I need a hose barb to come off of a female 1/2 inch and would prefer it also be plastic. So what I need to know is this the correct way to write it for a search? I can do plumbing but don't understand all the abbreviations, or in which order they go. LMAO.
Hose Barb, Straight, Barb Size 1/2 In, Hose Inside Dia 1/2 In, NPT Size 3/8
 
or is this correct?
 
1/4 inch plastic Hose Barb, to female 1/2 inch NPT

    1/2 FPT by 1/4 barb    ... that might be tough to find  ... a 1/2 MPT by 1/4 barb should work with a female 1/2 coupler and seems to be easier to get.

    Kinda, LOL I'm working on my injector project and the Shurflo has plastic threads and I know sooner or later someone will cross thread it and then the pump is junk. So I'm looking for a plastic 1/2 coupler with a small barb so it's less likely to screw up the pump threads than puting on the brass coupler. But I think I found what I need from a plastics company. I just have to wait until I get home to double check something. Did you get fittings with your Shurflow pump? I didn't but I saw them and already called them and the barb is way to big for what I'm doing.

    Yes your right, on the combo. I did find one made for the medical field and they only wanted $98.00 for it. I really did LMAO. 98 dollors no wonder insurance is so high.
     
    I think as I posted above I have a plastics company that makes the coupler and from there I can go with a 1/4" barb.
     
    The quick connect fittings I was using for my injector just become useless after 4 or 5 uses because of the sugar in the apple juice. And we cleaned the hell out of them after each use. So I'm going food grade plastic. But the good news is my injector needles came in from China today and they are perfect, stainless, right number of holes right length, correct threads, right on the money.

    Oh found one.   ... at http://www.qcsupply.com/female-thread-x-hose-barb-nylon-fitting-1-2-fpt.html?utm_source=googlebase&utm_medium=cpc&gclid=CNXxvJmF0a8CFcyP7QodgCjPHQ

     
    It looks like you did WOW thank you for your time in researching this link. You made me a happy camper.
    Thank you very much. I really appreciate it.
     
    I found another company that makes a lot of neat stuff including the coupling and hose barb but they are separate not that that is the end of the world. But it may be a link that some here on RF would like to save and browse when looking for any kind of plastic items. Its http://www.usplastic.com
     
    They carry plastic tubing and it may be great for water lines:
    Tygothane® Tubing
    U.S. Plastic Corp.® carries multiple types of Tygon® Tygothane® tubing.  Tygon® Tygothane® high performance polyurethane tubings are used for physically demanding applications in food and beverage, chemical and small engine fuel line markets.  These tubings are offered in ester and ether based and also can be braid reinforced for higher pressure resistance applications. http://www.usplastic.com/...default.aspx?catid=865

    And they have a food section which is pretty extensive. http://www.usplastic.com/...amp;clickid=topnavmenu

    Yes $98.00 how much could it cost to manufacture?  If it cost more than $3.00 to make I'll eat my hat. And if it cost $12.00 top produce and ship your still $86.00 in the black wow. At that rate I should charge my Doctor around $56.00 for a hot dog. And maybe $125.00 for a slab of ribs. So if I sell a hospital say 200 slabs a week ........
    Thanks again for your help.

    You know what I learned about pumps through all of this is if you want to cut the pressure on the output side all you need do is restrict the intake side. Smaller intake line = less pressure on the out put side of the pump. Maybe I should have figured that out a long time ago but I never thought of it. 
    thanks Vic

    In that link it is only $1.80 retail, so manufacturing is pennies.   ...oh well ... i'll bet the retailer don't many at $98   ....hahaha.... not everyone fell off the turnip truck yesterday!
