Non- Welded High Pressure Piping System
The BARDKO® flared joint is based on flaring the tube ends to 10 degrees with two internal cones. Both cones have an O-ring.
The connection is made by cold cutting the pipe square, deburing it, and slipping on a tube nut before the pipe is flared. After flaring, the cone is secured into the tube by way of an interference fit. In fact, the cone may be used up to three times to flare the tube. By flaring the tube with the cone, you can be sure of a sealed joint every time. Once the nut and cone have been installed, the joint is ready for installation to the tube adapter.
Our standard connection style conforms to SAE, BSP, BSPP, METRIC and NPT. The BARDKO® connection has only one method of attaching the tube nuts to the tube which is by a 10-degree flare. The cone flares the tube 10 degrees regardless of the system pressure or the tube size. All tube sizes and wall thicknesses are flared the same way.
