Flared Fittings at Hy-Lok
Flared fittings come in many varieties and are used in many different applications and fluid systems. They are most commonly found in settings where long-term reliability is essential, such as in commercial vehicles and natural gas lines.
One of the most common fittings we sell is the 37-degree flared JIC fitting. These fittings are fully compatible with SAE and JIC (Joint Industry Council) standards, and perform well under severe vibrations, pressure bursts, and thermal shocks. When tightened, the fitting’s sleeve ensures tube alignment with the fitting axis, reducing mechanical strain on the tube and decreasing vibrations. These fittings are common in a wide variety of industries and applications, from vehicle brake lines to hydraulic ramp systems.
SS316 – The Best Stainless Steel Solution
While every fluid system will have unique requirements depending on function and industry regulations, stainless steel fittings are some of the most commonly used components in many applications. In particular, SS316 stainless steel has proven to be one of the most popular material choices for flared tube fittings.
SS316 is an austenitic (non-magnetic) stainless steel with added molybdenum to increase corrosion resistance and improve strength at high temperatures. Because of its durability in a range of extreme conditions, SS316 is the ideal stainless steel for many exhaust, heat exchange, pharmaceutical, cryogenic, and petrochemical systems.
