Parker Instrumentation has completed its family of rapid-assembly 1034 bar compression tube fittings, with the release of 15 additional component shapes. Using the familiar, industry-standard compression sealing technique, which assembles in seconds by simply tightening a nut, the MPI fittings save an estimated 20 min at least per connection. The fittings are also resistant to vibration, eliminating the additional cost of the vibration gland that is commonly used with cone-and-thread fittings. The fittings may be used on cold-drawn hard (unannealed) 316 stainless steel tubing, or thick-walled (annealed) instrumentation-grade 316 tubing. The fittings also feature nuts coated with molybdenum di-sulphide, which provides a long-lasting lubricant to help prevent thread galling, and reduces the torque required to create the seal.
