This new system is reliable and compact, geared toward high-flow and low-to-medium system pressure applications. It is similar to the traditional Seal-Lok (SAE J1453) line, but can also adapt to the FlexFlange light-duty, flexible, corrugated-steel tubes used in gas appliances. The new system has shorter threads on the Lite ORFS end, and SAE-ORB-studded fittings use a light-duty port stud with shorter thread length. Fittings with male NPT threads use a light-duty version (PTF-Short). They also feature a hard-line (metallic tube) connection that uses existing stainless-steel Parflange tooling and equipment. Standard Seal-Lok Parflange sleeves are used throughout the traditional Seal-Lok and Lite fitting platforms. The systems allow high flow through the bore of the fitting, adapt to inch/metric tube, and tube and hose connections, and can be assembled by torque method. They are compact compared to instrumentation/hydraulic/traditional-grade fittings, use a captive O-ring groove seal for leak-free connection while retaining the O-ring and offer a zero-clearance fitting system for tight installations.
On Memorial Day, Americans remember the sacrifices the US armed forces have made, and continue to make, in service to the country. All of us should also consider the developments in technological capabilities and equipment over the years that contribute to the success of our military operations.
In order to keep in line with safety protocols, industrial networks need to be filtered in a semantic way so that only information related to diagnostics is flowing back to the vendor and that any communications that could be used for remote machine operations are suppressed.
Advanced visualization can depict an entire plant in motion, while also detailing an individual workstation. Individual products can be rendered different for each discipline involved — marketing, engineering, or suppliers.
