Flared Fittings at Hy-Lok Canada
There are many different types of flared fittings available today in countless applications and fluid systems. They are most commonly used in settings where long-term reliability and durability are essential, such as commercial vehicles, natural gas lines and other highly demanding applications.
One of the most common fittings we sell is the 37-degree flared JIC fitting. These fittings are fully compatible with SAE, JIC, and ORB standards, able to maintain a consistent seal under severe vibrations, pressure bursts, and thermal shocks. When tightened, the fitting’s sleeve maintains tube alignment with the fitting axis, reducing mechanical strain on the assembly and decreasing vibrations. These fittings are standard in a wide variety of industries and applications, from vehicle brake lines to hydraulic ramp systems.
SS316 and Beyond: Choose the Right Material for Your System
Every industrial process and fluid system has unique requirements depending on the function and industry regulations. For many applications, however, SS316 stainless steel has proven to be one of the most popular material choices for flared tube fittings.
SS316 stainless steel is an austenitic (non-magnetic) alloy with added molybdenum for maximum corrosion resistance and improved strength at high temperatures. Because of its durability in extreme operating conditions, SS316 is the ideal stainless steel for many exhausts, heat exchange, pharmaceutical, cryogenic, and petrochemical systems.
While SS316 is certainly a popular choice, it’s far from the only option available from Hy-Lok Canada. To help our customers get optimal components for every fluid system, Hy-Lok Canada offers custom-fabricated flared fittings for unique and challenging applications. With a wide variety of materials, wall thicknesses, and temperature/pressure ratings available, we’re proud to offer high-quality, durable fittings designed for seamless integration into any fluid system.
