Baltimore, MD (May 1, 2013) – The Industry now has an alternative to PTFE hose assemblies with conventional O-ring end connections. FlexFit Hose Face Seal Fittings are now available to order, providing faster connections for flexible hose and tubing systems in areas of manufacturing where reducing production downtime is critical. They are designed to be interchangeable with fittings such as VCO® O-ring face seal fittings by Swagelok® and Seal-Lok™ fittings by Parker.
Starting with the female style, ranging from ¼” to 1”, FlexFit Hose Face Seal Fittings are manufactured using CNC Swiss machining in their Baltimore manufacturing plant. The fittings are made with 316L stainless steel, are chamfered internally for a smooth transition between hose and fittings and offer zero-clearance, providing customers more convenience of process implementation, as well as maintenance repair & overhaul ( MRO ). Face seal fittings are designed for hose assemblies performing at high pressures and being used in critical vacuum applications, over a wide range of temperatures. In keeping with FlexFit Hose’s values, customers will benefit from this high quality alternative fitting along with faster delivery time on orders.
FlexFit Hose distributor and President of Janco Process Controls Inc, Nick Patitsas said, “FlexFit Hose is able to offer a high quality product at a better value with shorter lead time than the leading brand.” Patitsas believes his customers in the Hydraulic and Pneumatic markets will be especially excited about this offering, adding, “While competitors need several weeks to deliver an order, FlexFit Hose can turn around an order in 1-2 weeks.”
Director of Sales, Christopher Woodland said, “I believe the launch of FlexFit Hose’s Face Seal Fittings will be a valuable addition to the market because it is yet another solution to help our customer’s keep their production downtime to a minimum while continuing to experience far better response times and customer service than most PTFE hose assembly manufacturers.”
