Advantages are - unrestricted clean flow of fluids, no fluid entrapment areas, and all PTFE wetted surfaces internally. Available as standard, stocked fittings in the listed sizes, or in other sizes to special order.
Note: The inside lip of the Aflex flared face design is hot formed to a square edge. This prevents a gap for fluid entrapment between the rubber seal and the sealing face. Other suppliers designs have rounded edges, which opens a gap for fluid entrapment.
This fitting design is available to special order. No separate seal is required for this design, eliminating any seal compatibility problems.
