Ultra High Pressure Connections
The Ultra High Pressure tubing connection is available for 1/4" and 3/8" O.D. tubing. The tubing
may be prepared with the use of tooling (see Tooling section 15) or prepared at the factory
to specified lengths. Additionally, standard length coned and threaded nipples are available
from stock, see page 60.
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 Ultra High Pressure connection (glands, collars and plugs) are produced in Type 316 stainless steel.
Necessary glands and collars are provided with all valves and fittings (except nipples) unless otherwise requested (see chart on the right for size details and catalog numbers).
