This tube connection speeds assembly of systems

Designed for working pressures as high as 22,500 psi (1,550 bars), the new “flared-cone” technology advances the performance of compression-style tube connections. It provides users with a simple and reliable means of speeding the assembly of instrument tubing systems for use in higher-pressure applications in the oil-and-gas industries. The new flared-cone connection (FCC) technology (photo) is said to be a significant advance on the type of “cone and thread” tube connections pioneered by the company. The new FCCs are much simpler to make up. Installers can typically complete the task in less than 4 min, after only minimal training. This time-saving can result in significant cost reductions on installations with a large number of tube connections. Flared-cone connections are also especially cost-effective in applications where leaks caused by vibration are an issue. — Parker Hannifin Corp., Cleveland, Ohio
