Miniature 10-32 Thread 316 Stainless Steel Compression Fittings

Beswick Engineering announces the release of the MCB-1016-316 and the MCB-1018-1-316 miniature compression fittings for 1/16 OD and 1/8 OD tubing. The benefits include:

  1. Space and weight savings of miniature 10-32 thread.
  2. Corrosion resistance of 316 Stainless Steel.
  3. Leakage is prevented at thread due to O-ring face seal design.

These fittings, with a 10-32 thread, are ideal for use in limited space applications. They are smaller and lighter than 1/8 NPT thread compression fittings commonly used with 1/16 and 1/8 OD tubing.

The Beswick O-ring face seal design prevents leakage, eliminates the need for sealants, and enables metal to metal contact. The O-ring gland is carefully designed and controlled at the time of manufacture to limit the squeeze on the O-ring seal. The gland provides firm metal to metal contact when the fitting is installed which prevents the fitting from loosening in service.

Applications include: Analytical Instruments, Medical Equipment, Semiconductor Production Machinery, Fuel Cells and Military Equipment.
