Tube Fittings Installation Instructions

 FITOK Tube Fittings up to 1" or 25 mm


1.Loosen the nut 1/4 turn from finger-tight position.

2. Insert tubing into the tube fitting, make sure that the tubing rests firmly on the shoulder of the port.

3. Finger-tighten the nut.

4. Tighten the nut 1 1/4 turns with wrench while holding the body of the fitting or the valve steady .
     For small-sized fittings (1/16", 1/8" and 3/16", 2 mm, 3 mm and 4 mm), tighten the nut 3/4 turn with wrench .

What is the difference between NPT and Whitworth thread?

  1. NPT Threads (NPT)

     60 thread angle
     Pitch measured in inch
     Truncation of root and crest are parallel 
     Taper 1:16
     Type of sealing: thread sealant
     
  2.   ISO Tapered Threads (R, R1, R2, RC, RT, PT, BSPT, ZG)

      55 thread angle 
      Pitch measured in inch
      Truncation of root and crest are round 
      Taper 1:16 
      Type of sealing: thread sealant
     
  3. ISO Parallel Threads (G, RP, PF, BSPP)

     55 thread angle 
     Pitch measured in inch
     Truncation of root and crest are round

 

What parameters are decisive when choosing a valve?

  1. Max. working pressure at max. medium temperature
  2. Max. temperature of the flowing medium
  3. Valve function, shut-off or control
  4. Valve material taking into account the chemical properties of the medium
  5. Max. required flow rate through valve
  6. Valve connection method, integrated screwing, male or female thread

What are the main contaminants in aviation fuel?

  1.  Mechanical particles - from transport tanks, transport piping and air.
  2.  Free water - enters the aviation fuel by release from the bound water contained in all hydrocarbon products due to changes in temperature and pressure and from the surrounding atmosphere when handling fuel. Free water is removed from the fuel by coalescing filters and by regularly draining storage tanks, filters and filling tanks.
  3. Biological contamination - bacteria, yeasts that originate at the interface of hydrocarbons and free water in storage tanks and filters. As these particles are smaller than 1µm, they cannot be filtered by conventional filters and there is a risk of contamination of the fuel in the aircraft tanks.
