Stainless steel compression fittings are comprised of four components: the fitting body, the front ferrule, the back ferrule and the nut. The dual ferrule system allows an excellent seal with minimal torque on the nut. These fittings are made from 316 stainless steel. The body meets ASTM A182, and the nut and both ferrule components meet ASTM A479. They can be used with both Component Supply's Hypodermic Tubing Adaptor Ferrule System
and PTFE Tubing Adaptor Ferrule System
, which allow for the incorporation of hypodermic tubing or PTFE tubing into standard liquid or gas circuits.
Stainless steel compression fittings are used to connect metal and plastic tubing for various pressure applications by compressing the tubing to create a tight seal. They are one component of Component Supply's PTFE and hypodermic tubing adaptor ferrule systems. These fittings also are used in applications needing to connect fractional stainless steel tubing using a Luer fitting.
