The Anderson Metals flare tee is made of brass and has tubing connectors. This fitting is T-shaped and has three openings to connect and branch three pipes, two on the main run and one branch at a 90-degree angle from the middle of the tee. It connects to tubing on all three, flared ends. This fitting is made of brass for corrosion resistance, ductility at high temperatures, and low magnetic permeability. This fitting has 45-degree flared construction for a stronger connection than soldered, long-term reliability, and for use in installations where flames or heat are not allowed. The operating temperatures range from -65 to 250 degrees F. This fitting is for use in fuel equipment, plumbing, gas, refrigeration, and vacuum applications. It is suitable for copper, brass, aluminum, and steel tubing.
Pipe and tube fittings are components used for connecting, terminating, controlling flow, and changing the direction of piping in many different industries. Flared fittings are alternatives to solder-type joints and are used when the use of an open flame from a soldering iron is impractical or prohibited. The most common flare fitting standards are the 45-degree and 37-degree flare. When purchasing fittings, consider the application, as this will affect material type, shape, size, and required durability. Fittings are available threaded or unthreaded, in many shapes, styles, sizes, and schedules (pipe wall thickness).
Anderson Metals manufactures brass fittings, valves, and pipe nipples. The company, founded in 1951, is headquartered in Kansas City, MO.
