Unique Swaging Action • Provides a seal between ferrule and body at a point different from where the heavy work is per- formed • Supports tube ahead of seal to resist vibration • Does not create torque or leave residual strain on tubing • Does not significantly reduce flow area.



Gage Assures

Sufficient Pull-Up • Useful for both the installer and inspector • If the gage will not fully enter the gap between the nut and body shoulder, fitting pull-up is sufficient • If the gage enters the gap, you'll know pull-up is incomplete.


Me tal-to-Metal

Seal >r-

Patented jfjT • Interaction of precision parts — body, front ferrule, back ferrule and nut — produces a leak-free seal with simple 1-1/4 turn pull-up • Works on thick or thin wall tubing • Seals repeatedly under make-and-break conditions •

Seals consistently over a wide range of pressures, temperatures and temperature cycling.
