1/4" Mini Split Copper Tubing Flare Fitting
size is listed as OD (outer-diameter) - to determine nominal size
subtract 1/8''. We recommend the use of compatible thread sealant such as Nylog Blue and
tightening per manufacturer torque settings.
Brass consists of 65% copper and 35% zinc
which means high-tensile strength while resisting corrosion. The forging
process of fittings maximize strength and eliminate cracking. Vacuum pressures of 5,000 psi
can be handled depending on the size, materials, and conditions. Long
dryseal pipe threads minimize leakage and provide more clearance for
tightening flare nuts.
Brass fittings can be used with copper, brass, aluminum, steel, and
plastic tubes providing an acceptable flare can be generated with the
material. These heavy-duty ACR tube fittings generally conform to SAE,
ASA and ARI standards for marine, hydraulic, and refrigeration service.
Tube fittings are make and break, have good vibration resistance,
economical and are easy to assemble.
