Flared Tube Fittings
Flare fittings are typically used on the flared ends of tubes made of softer metals such as aluminum, copper, and brass, but they can also be used with the flared end of welded steel tubing. Flare tube fittings are highly reliable over the long term. These fittings are used to create pressure-resistant, leak-tight seals in high-pressure potable and non-potable water systems, as well as for fuel, oil, air, liquid petroleum, and natural gas connections. They come in a broad range of sizes and configurations including caps, plugs, unions, elbows, adapters, and tees, among others.
