My system uses flangeless fittings, but due to system vibration, my fittings are loosening. How can I solve my problem?

Use of the Super Flangeless ferrule systems manufactured by IDEX Health & Science. Through the use of a lock ring around the back of the ferrule, the ferrule system works like a seal and a bearing, preventing the twisting of the tubing and thus virtually eliminating the loosening of the fittings that occurs in some applications that use the standard flangeless fittings.

Available with PEEK or Tefzel ferrules for 1/16″ OD tubing and 1/8″ OD tubing. Also available with a Kel-F ferrule for 1.8 mm OD tubing.
