How do autoclave fittings work?

How do autoclave fittings work?

Cone shape is machined on the ends of the tubing and then a left-hand thread is applied to the outside of the tube. The collar is threaded onto the tube and the gland is used to push on the collar to make the seal.

What is an MP fitting?

Medium Pressure. Fittings and Tubing. Available components are elbows, tees, crosses, couplings, check valves and filters. Fittings and tubing used to complete flow system requirements.

What is an autoclave valve?

Needle Valves. Parker Autoclave Engineers needle valves are designed for high pressure and temperature gas and liquid applications. Available in multiple tubing sizes with Vee or Regulating Stem and optional materials. These valves are used in markets such as water jet, water blast, chemical and oil and gas.

What is high pressure autoclave?

High-pressure autoclaves are designed for pressures far above 100 bar. The material properties must therefore be able to withstand such a load. All connections, i.e. valves, measuring devices and closures, are specially designed for applications under the influence of high pressure and temperature.

What is a cone and thread fitting?

Cone and thread fittings (C) from Parker ensures reliable medium and high pressure connection performance. The pressure handling capabilities of this cone and thread design have been applied successfully to control pressures in excess of 150,000 PSI.

What is the pressure in an autoclave?

approximately 15 pounds per square inch
Operating procedures When used properly, autoclaves are safe and highly effective. Autoclaves use saturated steam under pressure of approximately 15 pounds per square inch to achieve a chamber temperature of at least 250°F (121°C) for a prescribed time—usually 30–60 minutes.

What is cone and thread?

Cone and thread connections provide dependable medium- and high-pressure performance. Cone and thread fittings are available in 316, alloy 625, and alloy 2507. Fittings that meet NACE MR0175/ISO 15156 are available as are anti-vibration connection components.

What is a PVC pressure fitting?

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) Schedule 40 pressure fittings are used for potable water, chilled water, irrigation, golf course construction, and pool & spa applications. PVC is one of the thermoplastic materials most frequently specified for a variety of products used in the pipe and fittings industry.

What is a coning tool?

The coning tool is designed for preparing a “cone” on the ends of Medium, High and Ultra High Pressure tubing. Included angle of the cone is approximately 57 to 59 degrees. The cutter and collet are interchangeable on all of the assemblies (except 2-HF9 and 2-LF9) to permit changing from one size tubing to another.

How are Parker autoclave engineers fittings marked?

All Parker Autoclave Engineers fittings are marked with manufacturers name, part number, material, heat code and maximum pressure for complete traceability. Fittings and Tubing High Pressure Cone & Thread

What types of pressure connections can be incorporated into an autoclave?

Among the pressure connections that can be incorporated are Parker Autoclave Engineers’ low, medium and high pressure, NPT, SAE, BSP and others. Transitions in system line sizes and tubing pressure series can be accomplished through a specialty manifold.

What is an autoclave manifold?

Parker Autoclave Engineers will design and build pressure manifolds to meet specific installation, layout and pressure requirements. These manifolds are capable of withstanding pressures from vacuum to 60,000 psi (4137 bar), and are available in a variety of materials and sizes.
