Omni-Lok Fittings & Ferrules

Posted on October 5, 2014

 

The Omni-Lok™ fitting system is a group of products specifically designed for optimum performance within a threaded port that is of a shallow depth, and/or is made from PTFE.

Shallow ports mean less threads with which the fitting nut can engage. PTFE ports exhibit less strength than for instance a PEEK port. These factors may lead to thread stripping from the PTFE port, a less than optimum seal integrity in the case of a shallow port, or both.

Omni-Lok™ fittings are available for several connection types such as Omni-Lok™ Type P, Omni-Lok™ Type S, Omni-Lok™ inverted cone and Omni-Lok™ Gripper.

Omni-Lok™ Type P Ferrules

The Omni-Lok™ Type P fitting system uses a one-piece ferrule which fits permanently to the outside of the semi-rigid tubing.  Ferrules have an inner PTFE sealing face ensuring that only PTFE is in the fluid path.  The outer casing is stainless steel or PEEK™.  The fitting can spin freely, eliminating tubing twist.  A recess in the fitting houses the ferrule, allowing maximum thread engagement with the port.  This ensures the system stays sealed up to 1000 psi (69 bar) pressure.

Omni-Lok™ Type S Ferrules

The Omni-Lok™ Type S fitting system uses a two-piece ferrule which fits permanently to the outside of the tubing. Two-part ferrules consist of an inner PEEK™ sealing surface surrounded by a stainless steel lock ring with only the inner portion in the fluid path. The fitting can spin freely, eliminating tubing twist. A recess in the fitting houses the ferrule, allowing maximum thread engagement with the port. This ensures the system stays sealed up to 500 psi (33 bar) pressure.
