Medium Pressure Connections
The Medium Pressure tubing connection is available for 1/4", 3/8", 9/16" 3/4", and 1" O.D. tubing. The tubing may be prepared with the use of tooling (see tooling section 9.0) or prepared at the factory to specified lengths. Additionally, standard length coned and threaded nipples are available from stock (see page 3.9).
This connection has become an industry standard for use at elevated pressures and temperatures in both liquid and gas applications. It may be disassembled and retightened indefinitely.
The threads of the gland are right-hand while the threads of the collar and tubing are left-hand to prevent rotation of the collar during assembly.
Materials. All of the components required for make-up of a Medium Pressure connection (glands, collars and plugs) are produced in Type 316 stainless steel.
Glands and collars are provided with all valves and fittings (except nipples) unless otherwise requested. (See chart for size details and catalog numbers).
