Stainless Steel TubingWhen it comes to selecting instrumentation tubing, it is important to consider the two different types- welded and seamless. Each type of tubing provides unique features and benefits depending on the application at hand.
ISO connections and instrumentation fittings are two common connections found in fluid power systems. This post is an excerpt from our new Thread ID & Measurement Guide.
ISO/DIS 6162 4-Bolt Flange* is another common connection found in fluid powersystems. There are two pressure ratings for this connection; Code 61: PN 35/350bar which is considered the standard series Code 62: PN 415 bar which is the highpressure series.
We are proud to announce that our entire instrumentation tube-fittings line is ASTM F1387 certified. Our fittings have passed rigorous testing including: pneumatic proof, hydrostatic proof, impulse, flex fatigue, tensile, burst, repeated assembly, thermal cycling, elevated temperature soak and vibration testing. This means that Brennan instrumentation fittings are proven to perform under the toughest conditions without leaks or failures.
A check valve, non-return valve or one-way valve is a valve that normally allows fluid (liquid or gas) to flow through it in only one direction.
Check valves are two-port valves, which means that they have two openings in the body, one for fluid to enter and the other for fluid to leave. There are many different types of check valves used in a wide variety of applications in instrumentation, oil & gas installations, steam and gas turbines, low temperature gas and liquid systems and fine gas.
