How Tube Fittings Work
Tube fittings, particularly those for stainless steel tubing, have a tube gripping device assembly and a pull-up mechanism. A tube fitting connects one tube to another, whether to a hose or a hydraulic component, such as manifold valve. Tube fittings must meet two critical functions to meet pressure, temperature and vibration criteria: tightly gripping the tube end to prevent leakage and maintaining a primary seal against leaks.
Types of Tubing Fittings
In general, tubing fittings are available in the following types:
Single ferrule – Also called a flareless compression type, this type uses a "lone" ferrule to seal and grip the tubing successfully.
Double ferrule – This is another flareless compression type that splits the function of tubing fitting between two separate ferrules. The front ferrule provides a seal between the ferrule, tubing, and fitting body. On the other hand, the rear ferrule grips the tubing and holds the ferrule in place.
Bite – This is a three-piece system composed of a nut, ferrule, and body. The ferrule cutting edge is forced into the wall of the tubing to seal the tubing.
Flared fitting – This is another type typically used with metal tubing (soft steel, ductile copper, aluminum, etc.) where the tubing is "flared," i.e., expanded and deformed at the end.
