Brass gauge adaptor tube fitting for heavy machinery, and industrial and construction equipment applications
Brass gauge adaptor, Flare fittings are a type of compression fitting used with metal tubing, usually soft steel, ductile (soft) copper and aluminum, though other materials are also used. Tube flaring is considered to be a type of forging operation, and is usually a cold working procedure.
These fittings are appropriate alternatives to solder-type joints when the use of an open flame is either not desired or impractical. Copper tube used for propane, LP, or natural gas may use flared brass fittings of single 45°-flare type, according to NFPA 54/ANSI. Z223.1 National Fuel Gas Code.
It consist of a body with a flared or coned end. Special flaring tools are used to install the tube to fit inside the flared end, providing a deep seal. Flare fittings can handle higher pressures and a wider range of operating parameters than standard compression fittings.
Features of Brass gauge adaptor:
- These economical fittings resist mechanical pullout and disassembled repeatedly. Listed with Underwriter’s
- Can be assembled and disassembled repeatedly.
- Long dry seal pipe thread minimize leakage and provide more clearance for tightening flare nuts.
- Grooved shapes, elbows, tees etc.
- Made form brass forgings to minimize strength and eliminate cracks.
- For flammable liquid, marine and gas applications.
