TRULY TUBULAR OFFERS A UNIQUE CONCEPT...........
STAINLESS STEEL tube fittings in actual tube OD sizes
FABRICATED from thin wall TUBING

BRAZETYTE® was created to satisfy the need for a standard line of versatile fittings compatible with thin wall stainless steel tubing and suitable for reliable permanent type assemblies.

MATERIAL
Over the years the use of the "Modern Metal" (stainless steel) has increased steadily. Its corrosion resistant qualities and high strength characteristics have inspired design engineers to specify stainless. Now with BRAZETYTE®, quality is available at reasonable cost.

APPLICATION
TRULY TUBULAR BRAZETYTE® fittings lend themselves ideally to industrial applications in the beverage, chemical, food, marine, medical, photogra-phy, refrigeration industries and many other areas.

ADVANTAGES
This new line of fittings, as its name implies, is fabricated from thin wall type 316L stainless steel tubing to provide maximum corrosion resistance with minimum bulk and weight.

All elbows incorporate smooth radius bends for maximum flow and minimum turbulence. Because BRAZETYTE® fittings utilize thin wall tubing, they are light in weight and provide larger tube inside dimensions for increased capacity and flow. These fittings afford a substitute for the present heavy machined fittings produced from bulky expensive forgings. BRAZETYTE®'s construction facilitates the use of thin wall tubing throughout the complete system.
Installation costs reduce, because BRAZETYTE®'s
fittings are easy to use. Special tools are not required and quick connections may be made utilizing standard processing.

VERSATILE
Versatility is provided through the combination styles offered. A tube system may be fabricated using soldering, brazing, welding, or bonding and in conjunction with the flare type union. Many combinations are available as standard items. Standard tube fitting configurations-Tees, Adapters, Reducers, 45, 90 Elbows and 180 Return Bends are available in most styles and sizes.

ABOUT BRAZETYTE® TUBE FITTINGS........
Sub Assembly

TRULY TUBULAR BRAZETYTE® fittings are engineered
for solder, weld, braze, or bond type connections to be
used in permanent assemblies or sub-assemblies. This
type of system provides for maximum reliability.
The female expanded ends of the fittings are designed to mate
with actual tube OD sizes and therefore may be used with various
wall thicknesses.
MF style = Male & Female
MM style = all Male
FF style = all Female
These styles are recommended for use in all welded or all brazed
systems where a permanent and truly reliable assembly is required.

SF & SM style = Swivel This style combines a swivel flare type union
with a female expanded end or male end depending on the fitting
configuration. They provide for easy sub-assembly disconnects in a
tube system. The standard connections are designed to mate with
SAE 37, JIC 37 and AN/MS 37 flare type fittings. Specials are available
for 45 fittings.

WHY STAINLESS STEEL?
Its corrosion resistance and high strength characteristics afford advantages over many other materials.
Stainless steel resists corrosion. It remains strong and ductile even at extreme temperature ranges. It has
an attractive appearance and is well suited for architectural or mechanical applications where appearance
and strength are required.

HOW TO SPECIFY BRAZETYTE® TUBE FITTINGS
NOMENCLATURE:
TRULY TUBULAR BRAZETYTE® fitting part numbers are constructed from symbols that identify the size
and style of the fitting. The dash numbers indicate tube OD size by 1/16 inches, thus-4 means 4/16" or 1/4",
-10 means 10/16" or 5/8", etc. The first series of numbers identifies the style or configuration of the fitting.
The letters designate combinations of male, female, and swivel ends of the part. (see below)
