Stainless steel seals and adapters

Brennan Industries has extended its stainless steel product line by introducing new stainless steel O-ring face seal and flange adapters. Stainless steel offers increased corrosion resistance and sealing for critical, harsh-duty applications. Machined from round stock, the flange adapters are hot-piercing bent for the desired angle and do not have braze and weld points. Swept configurations allow the flange adapters to perform in limited clearance application situations, while their construction enables them to endure extremely high working pressures and tensile strength. Brennan flange adapters range in connection sizes from 0.5 to 4 in (12.7 to 104 mm). O-ring face seal fittings eliminate leaks in hydraulic systems, while permitting operating pressures as high as 6000 psi (414 bar). Developed for hydraulic systems on both industrial and commercial equipment, the product line is available in 23 different configurations and in 35 different size combinations. Brennan Industries’ O-ring face seal fittings are designed specifically for applications where elastomeric seals are acceptable to overcome leakage and variations in assembly procedures. The fittings can easily be connected to a range of tubing grades by silver brazing. In addition, the fittings can easily be disassembled and reassembled.
