Parker face seal fittings

Ultra High Purity Fittings from Parker

If you have an application that requires high purity fittings, Fluid Controls has the perfect solution for you. Our Ultra High Purity fittings include face seal, Buttweld and MiniButtweld fittings that are electro polished and cleaned to provide the highest standards.

Our range of Ultra High Purity (UHP) fittings from Parker Vacuseal, TK Fujikin and Valex covers the complete spectrum of face seal fittings, Automatic Buttweld and MiniButtweld fittings. The UHP fittings are designed as leak-free connections where high integrity and ultra-high purity conditions are required. UltraSeal products, with their o-ring face seal design and optional metal o-ring, provide a leak-free seal from vacuum to positive pressure.

Valex Weld fittings

Valex Weld fittings are available in 316L, and 316L VIM/VAR Stainless Steels and Hastelloy C. The Weld fittings are designed to meet the arduous demands of our customers’ ultra high purity gas systems. Available down to 5Ra electro polished internal finish and coax dual containment for the safety and integrity of toxic gas lines.

Face Seal Fittings

Our Face Seal range of products, with their mating gasket and toroid design, provide a metal-to-metal seal with leak-free service from vacuum to positive pressure. Face seal fittings in this range include:

  • TorqTite gaskets to seal damaged toroids and virtually eliminate loosening of components due to thermocycling and vibration.
  • High-Purity Nickel and Hastelloy C-22 glands for extremely corrosive applications.
  • Non-Rotational Female Nuts to prevent transmission of torque during make-up and therefore minimise twist of components, which causes stress concentration.
  • Anti-Galling Female Nuts to ensure consistent makeup without plating or lubrication.

Buttweld Fittings

Parker Buttweld fittings are designed for applications requiring the reliability of a welded tubing system. They were developed specifically for installation using automatic, orbital TIG (Tungsten/Inert Gas) welding equipment. These fittings offer the easiest, fastest and most reliable way to
fabricate welded systems.

Automatic Buttweld fittings are available in 316, and 316L stainless steel in straight unions, tees, 90° elbows, and crosses. Automatic Buttweld ends are also available with male pipe and compression tube connections. While MiniButtweld fittings provide compact ultra-high pure designs for use with orbital weld equipment. Their unique machining and surface enhancement prevent outgassing and inhibit corrosion.
