Press Release Summary:
Used in place of welded and threaded pipe fittings, INSERTA(TM) 4-bolt, Split Flange Connectors accommodate width of SAE Code 61 and Code 62 split clamp flanges. Design A incorporates 4-bolt clamp face groove and sealing O-ring. Design B eliminates 4-bolt clamp face groove and O-ring for those applications that require this geometry. Design C has all flat flange faces with 4-bolt holes tapped for flange mounting.
Original Press Release:
INSERTA(TM) Code 61 and Code 62 4-Bolt, Split Flange Type, Modular Connectors
INSERTA(TM) Code 61 and Code 62 4-Bolt, Split Flange Type, Modular Connectors are used in integrated hydraulic systems in place of welded and threaded pipe fittings. These are the original INSERTA(TM) Modular Connectors whose port face widths are made to accommodate the width of the SAE Code 61 and Code 62 split clamp flanges. There are three design codes. Design A incorporates the 4-Bolt clamp face groove and sealing O-ring on Face /O and a plain Face 1. This design permits stacking various INSERTA(TM) flange type modules together with a minimum of O-ring seals to virtually eliminate leaks associated with pipe threads. This task is further enhanced because using large wrenches with high torque normally needed to install pipe fittings are no longer required since the INSERTA(TM) Modular Connectors bolt together. Design B eliminates the 4-Bolt clamp face groove and O-ring on Face /O for those applications that need this geometry. Design C is similar to Design B in that it has all flat flange faces , but having 4-Bolt holes tapped for flange mounting. Design A & B Modular elbows, run tees, branch tees and crosses are held in place by bolts that extend from Face 1 to Face /O in the 4-Bolt flange pattern. Standard Code 61 & Code 62 Modular Connectors have all flange ports of the same size and are made of steel.
