OmegaOne makes a wide variety of stainless steel tube fittings to fit many different applications. One of the most popular fittings that we sell is the OmegaFlare Flare Fittings.
Our flare fittings are a three-part fitting commonly known as the JIC. The three main components to the flare fittings are the body, the ferrule, and the nut. These three parts work together to create a metal to metal seal when the nut pulls together flared tubing, with the sleeve and fitting body.
Once you have connected the body, ferrule, and the nut, here are multiple ways to flare tube, there are a large variety of hand-operated tools as well as hydraulically operated flaring equipment.
This type of fitting is so common due to its simple construction and usability. Flare fittings are ideal for hydraulic applications. Typically, pressures ranging from 2,500 to 10,000 PSI. Flare fittings are ideal for joining both hydraulic tube and hose systems. Additional applications include Petro-chemical, fertilizers, water, and other fluids.
The seal on the OmegaFlare fittings is reliable as long as there are no imperfections on the parts such as and debris or damage to the ceiling surfaces, the ceiling is compromised.
The flare fitting is not recommended for applications that require constant dis-assembly and reassembly because the sealing surface is subject to damage during the process of loosening and retightening. Repeated re-sealing will wear the sealing surface, making the seal less reliable.
