The Flaretite Seal - Leak Free JIC/SAE/JIS Fittings

THE FLARED FITTING

Designed some 70 years ago the flared fitting offered manufacturers and users a cost effective easy to assemble small package size comprehensive range of fittings that has become Globally accepted, expanding from its traditional user base of North America , Australia and Japan to now include other regions like Europe and China.

COMMON ISSUES

Evolving higher pressure and more demanding duty cycle hydraulic systems exposed the metal to metal flare sealing face weakness of flared fittings making it very difficult to obtain a permanent leak free flared type fitting joint. Flared Fitting LeakIt has become the norm to expect a flared fitting to leak from misaligned flare fittings, during forging, flared surface damage and scratches or leakage caused by vibration in the field. 





THE SOLUTION

LEAKING FLARED FITTING + FLARETITE SEAL
=
100% LEAK FREE JOINT


The Flaretite Seal (developed: June 2000 by Norm Mathers, President of Flaretite Pty. Ltd) is a stainless steel stamping, designed with multiple concentric rings. 

The Flaretite Seal is a stainless steel stamping, designed with multiple concentric rings. The entire seal is impregnated with a baked –on Locktite coating. When inserted into a flared fitting joint the concentric rings form multiple seals down the face of the flare and the Locktite coating fills minor imperfections. The sealing rings prevent environmental contamination and aggressive cleaning solvents from attacking the seal face and also protect the face from fretting, galling, over tightening and electrolysis. Unlike ORFS fittings Flaretite Seals will not em-brittle, harden & fail like o-rings do.  Flaretite Seals will not fail in a fire like o-rings, this prevents atomized oil from fueling combustion.

Independently tested by Eaton’s Aeroquip hose & fittings division to one million high pressure square wave pulse cycles on badly scored JIC flared fitting faces without failure, this design, which easily installs by simply clipping over the male flare section, makes Flaretite Seals the single best choice “compliant seal” flared type fitting permanent leak free fix.
