‘Flare Union’ Fittings are metallic fitting is a type of restriction fitting used with metal piping, usually mild steel, ductile Aluminium and Copper with other materials also used. Flare Fittings is used to deal with high water pressure, hot steam or gaseous distribution. Flare fittings give a secured contact with Copper endings and to a stable point threaded nipple end.
The basic advantage of flare joint is that, it can be connected by forming a wide contact area which resists the damage caused due to disturbance. For this reason they are used in making safety Gas connections or Gas lines, Refrigerant lines and many critical connections.
Low cost price material and ease of Installation.
No need for soldering the material and they can be installed using standard tools.
Reliability and Durability due to tight sealing.
Assembling and disassembling is easier due to non-soldering.
Ductile Copper is Leak proof, Pressure resistant, anti-corrosion.
In Underground piping connections.
In Air conditioned connections.
In the Oil distribution lines.
In the Natural Gas (Methane) and Propane connections
In the Refrigeration connections.
