Flaretite Seals

Overview

Your Utimate Solution for eliminating leaks!

Evolving higher pressure and more demanding hydraulic systems expose the metal to metal flare fitting which makes it very difficult to obtain a permanent leak free flared fitting joint. Flared Fitting Leaks are most commonly caused by misalignment, surface damage and vibration in the field.

The entire seal is coated with a dry-to-the-touch, baked-on Loctite™ sealant. When inserted into a fitting, the concentric rings form multiple seals down the face of the flare, while the Loctite coating fills minor imperfections, dramatically increasing the integrity of the fitting. New ISO and NFPA standards strongly recommend seals for all fittings.

The sealing rings prevent environmental debris and aggressive cleaning solvents from attacking the sealing face while the Loctite™ protects the face from fretting, galling and over-tightening. And unlike ORFS fittings, the Flaretite Seal will not fail during a fire, allowing atomized hydraulic oil to fuel the fire.

  • Fit on all standard JIC/SAE flare fittings, hydraulic, pneumatic,gas & fuel!
  • Helps protect against weeping on new and damaged fittings!
  • Creates a perfect "Leak-Free" clip-on seal!
  • Complies with the latest International standards!

Independently tested by Eaton’s Aeroquip hose & fittings division to one million high pressure square wave pulse cycles on badly scored JIC flared fitting faces without failure, this design, which easily installs by simply clipping over the male flare section, makes Flaretite Seals the single best choice “compliant seal” flared type fitting permanent leak free fix.

Having proven performance with some of the Worlds most difficult to seal flared fitting applications, Flaretite seals are available for use in Standard 37° JIC  flared type hydraulic fittings, 37° JIC 316 stainless Marine fittings & work extremley well on 45° SAE fittings for refrigeration.

Flaretite’s headquarters is locted in Fenton, Michigan where they have been producing seals for 15 years. Form there the Flaretite seals are taken to market via Distributors such as Eaton-Aeroquip (Eaton Master Catalog M21) and Eaton Wheatherhead sales and service outlets and direct to OEM’s.

The Result

The Flaretite Seal is a permanent, "Leak-Free" connection, which exceeds the performance of today's ORFS fittings, and at significantly lower cost. Our seal maintains the low profile, versatility, and world-wide availability of flared fittings.

Flared connections fitted with Flaretite Seals are today's answer to low cost, high integrity, "Zero-Leak" fittings, while complying with new international standards. This unique seal may be fitted to JIC & SAE, hydraulic, pneumatic and gas fittings. The introduction of the Flaretite Seal eliminates the weakness in the original flare design. Flaretite's approach to the global market is to target sales to national distributors and OEM's worldwide. Sales offices are based in the USA.
