Anatomy of Hy-Lok Tube Fittings: Precision in Every Part
At Hy-Lok Canada, our tube fittings are a testament to our commitment to quality design, as they can be used across a wide range of industries such as chemical, petrochemical, hydrogen fuel, pulp and paper, and more. Compromised of four essential parts (body, front ferrule, back ferrule, and nut), the two-ferrule design ensures unwavering leak-tight connections. Our innovative fitting design compensates for tolerances in a tube’s outer diameter (O.D.), wall thickness, and material hardness. At Hy-Lok, we are committed to providing our customers with top-quality, precision fittings at a cost-effective price.
Compatibility: A Crucial Factor of Leak-Free Installation
In order to achieve a leak-tight installation with one of our tube fittings, or other components you can find in our fittings catalogue, there are a few factors to consider. Below are some factors that may impact the leak-free capabilities of your fittings and tube fittings:
- Material Compatibility: Tubing material must align with the process fluid to ensure compatibility.
- Conditions Influencing Wall Thickness: Factors like temperature, pressure, vibration, and shock will influence wall thickness selection. Striking the right balance is crucial to prevent improper deformation or collapse.
- Tubing Hardness: The metal tubing must be softer than fitting materials, meaning that complete tempering of metal tubing for proper functionality is crucial.
- Surface Finish: A smooth tubing surface, free from weld seams, scratches, and draw marks, is crucial for leak-free installations.
- Tolerance and Ovality: Tubing with high tolerance in ovality or O.D. may pose fitting challenges or lead to performance issues.
- Precision Cuts: Squarely cut and properly deburred tubing ends contribute to the best performance.
