Steel and Stainless Steel Fittings and Adapters

Parker provides a full range of strong and durable Seal-Lok ORFS tube fitting material and plating solutions engineered to fight against weathering, chemical corrosion, and harsh environments.

Seal-Lok Fitting and Adapter Series

Parker's Seal-Lok ORFS fitting series provides the most reliable leak-free connection in the industry.

The ORFS design offers many benefits:

  • Zero clearance for easy plumbing
  • Resistance to over torque/eliminated damage from over-tightening
  • Vibration resistance/reduced loosening caused by system vibration (see test data)
  • Flat face for unlimited remakability

Building on these benefits, Parker has engineered enhancements to ensure that customer's downtime is minimized and productivity is maximized. Additionally, Parker has expanded the applications for ORFS fitting designs by created in Seal-Lok for CNG ORFS fittings and Seal-Lok Xtreme fittings.

Seal-Lok™ for CNG ORFS Fittings and Adapters

Seal-Lok for CNG fittings are tailored to accommodate unique natural gas attributes. They provide reliable fuel conveyance using an elastomeric seal compound made of hydrogenated nitrile that improves ozone resistance and supports wider temperature and pressure range requirements. In addition, it’s a great solution for high-vibration, on-vehicle applications where metal-to-metal sealing is not up to the task. Available in inch sizes 1/4" - 3/4" and metric sizes 6mm - 20mm.

  • Fully tested and certified by TUV for NGV 3.1-2014/CSA 12.3-2014, ECE R110, and ISO 15500
  • Passed Bonfire Testing in accordance with ANSI/CSA NGV2. Download the Bonfire Test Summary now.
  • Available in stainless steel and steel with zinc nickel plating
  • Sealing temperature capabilities of -40° to 300°F (-40° to 149°C)
