Canaflex has the right fitting for your application in both SAE and Metric!
We offer the complete line of Parker tube fittings including Triple-Lok, Seal-Lok, Ferulok, plus EO and EO2. What’s more, we stock pipe and port adapters in SAE, Metric, JIS and Komatsu configurations as well as flange adapters and accessories for all your high-pressure applications. We also carry everything from pipe fittings, compression fittings and tube benders to pipe benders, flaring tools and hydraulic fittings.
The Triple-Lok fitting meets strict SAE J514 requirements and ISO 8434-2 industry standards for 37° flare fittings. Its design is simple. It uses an easily produced flare at the tube end to seal and hold fluid under high pressure. The fitting has three pieces: the body, sleeve and nut. The tube is flared at a 37° angle (74° included angle) and held between the fitting nose (seat) and the sleeve (support) with the nut, providing a very effective seal between the fitting nose and the tube flare.
The Seal-Lok fitting meets or exceeds stringent SAE J1453 and ISO 8434-3 requirements. It is an O-ring face seal type fitting that consists of a nut, a body, an O-ring and a sleeve. The tube is flanged to 90° (or the tube may be brazed instead to a braze-type sleeve). When the fitting is assembled, it compresses an O-ring in the precision-machined groove of the fitting body to form a leak tight seal. Seal-Lok fittings are suitable for a wide range of tube wall thicknesses and are readily adaptable to inch or metric tubing and hose.
The Ferulok fitting design and performance capabilities far exceed strict SAE J514 requirements and Military Standards (MIL-F-18866H). The Ferulok fitting is a flareless fitting made up of a body, a one-piece ferrule, and a nut. On assembly, the ferrule “bites” into the tube’s outer surface with sufficient strength to hold the tube against pressure and seal the fluid, without considerable distortion of the inside tube diameter. Ferulok fittings have a visible bite, which allow the fitting assembler to visually inspect the bite quality, significantly minimizing the risk of improper assembly.
EO fittings are the most widely used bite type fittings in the world. The EO progressive ring fitting is a flareless metric fitting (for metric tube) that consists of a body, a progressive ring (ferrule) and a nut. On assembly, two cutting edges of the progressive ring “bite” into the outer surface of the tube, ensuring the necessary holding power and seal for high operating pressures.
Three series of EO tube fittings (LL, L and S) and accessories are manufactured in accordance with DIN 2353 (summary), which today is represented by international standard 8434-1 on the basis of decades of experience.
The EO-2 high-pressure tube-fitting generation is the most recent development from the Parker Tube Fitting Division Europe. It was introduced in an effort to eliminate leakage in all fluid systems. EO-2 fittings feature elastomeric seals on all joints, ensuring leak-free operation without retightening — even under severe working conditions. Another breakthrough in bite-type technology is the simple assembly and cost-saving handling of the unique EO-2 Functional Nut. EO-2 is a true metric design according to 24° bite-type standards such as: ISO 8434-1, DIN 2353 or DIN 3861. It covers all three series (LL, L and S) of the broad EO tube-fitting program.
Pipe and port adapters
Canaflex offers a wide variety of shaped products (elbows, tees and crosses), which are hot forged and machined, while its “straights” are manufactured from cold-drawn barstock. These products are all designed in conformance with applicable SAE J514 or J530 standards.
