Compression

PFA compression fittingsCompression fittings use three or four components per fitting to put pressure on the tubing's O.D. (outer diameter) to create a secure seal. Compression fittings are commonly used in applications involving fluids but may also be used for gas.

This style fitting offers good flow characteristics because the interior of the tubing is unencumbered by inserts such as barbs. Depending on the application and materials involved (plastic, metal), the fittings may be reused.

Compression fittings consist of a fitting body (E), an outer compression nut (B), an inner compression ring or ferrule (D), and in some cases a gripper (C). When the nut is tightened onto the fitting body, the ferrule compresses around the O.D. of the tubing (A) creating a secure seal. The nut should be finger tightened, and then further tightened one additional turn using a wrench. It is important to avoid over-tightening, as the ferrule may deform and cause the seal to fail.

They are ideally suited for corrosive environments and chemicals and for ultra-pure fluid applications where contamination-free systems are needed.
