Steel flare fittings give a tight and safe system, even in very demanding installations.
The systems consists of three parts: adaptor, nut and clamping sleeve. Together, they connect a pipe flared to 74°. They are called JIC/SAE 37° and are equivalent to SAE J514/ISO 8434-2. The sealing is achieved when the flared pipe end is pressed between two conical surfaces: the adaptor and the clamping sleeve. The clamping sleeve works as a plate to prevent the nut from cutting into the pipe and also as a pipe support. It prevents the pipe from rotating during tightening of the nut, and automatically steers the flared pipe into the right position in relation to the adaptor.
The fitting can be dismantled and reassembled many times without being damaged. By simply changing the clamping sleeve, the very same fitting can be used for either metrical or inch pipes. The flare fittings are always delivered with a cover to protect the threads from getting damaged and keep them free from contaminations.
The part number consists of two parts. The first four numbers show the Type (e.g. 7601 = J G, 7602 = J W).
The four last numbers show the thread size in 16-parts inches or the metric thread dimensions are shown directly (e.g. 7611-07-02 where 07 means 7/16" and 02 means 1/8").
