This Parker A-Lok BLP -B series compression tube fitting is made of brass, and connects to tubing on its open end. This cap is for closing the end of a Parker CPI or A-Lok fitting made of brass, with a threaded cap for maintenance. A ferrule compression fitting connects to an open-ended fitting for a leak-resistant seal. This fitting is made of brass for corrosion resistance, ductility at high temperatures, and low magnetic permeability. It is commonly used in chemical, petroleum, power generation, laboratory, and medical device plants.
Pipe and tube fittings are components used for connecting, terminating, controlling flow, and changing the direction of piping in many different industries. Compression fittings do not require tools or sealants, and are useful in installations where a heat source, such as a soldering torch, is prohibited. 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).
