The OmegaOne TX series fitting is a 37 degree Stainless Steel Flare Fittings or JIC (Joint Industry Council) fitting. The SAE 37⁰ flare fitting is among the most reliable and durable fittings made making it the most popular type of tube fitting in North America. Defined by Joint Industry Council (JIC), the SAE 37⁰ flare fitting is commonly referred to as the JIC fitting. The SAE flare fitting is defined by SAE specification J514 which supersedes MIL-F-18866 another commonly referenced standard for tube fittings.
The flare fitting involves three components, a fitting body, a flare sleeve and flare nut. The tubing used with flare fittings is seamless DOM (Drawn-Over-Mandrel) tubing. Welded tubing cannot be used to contain the pressures used commonly used in tube systems. Flaring tube is done either by hand with a flaring tool or more commonly a tube flaring machine. TX fittings are sold body only, TX nuts (TX-N) and sleeves (TX-S) are available independently or as part of a complete assembly. All TX series Flare Fittings are manufactured from 316 Stainless Steel.
