Lee's 5k Flareless Tube Safety Screen Adapter integrates Lee's rugged HI-BAR safety screen, which is machined entirely from solid
stainless steel bar stock, into a Ring Locked Adapter design. This
design is capable of withstanding system pressures up to 5080 psi, compared to
conventional flareless tube adapters which are rated for 4000 psi. Once the
screen is installed into the lightweight titanium fitting, the assembly is 100
percent proof pressure tested before shipment to ensure reliable performance.
Available in -4,
-6, -8 and -10 configurations, the adapter meets both of the latest aerospace
specifications, AS5550 and ABS0993.† Seven standard hole sizes ranging
from 0.002 (50 micron) to 0.020 inch (500 micron) in diameter are offered, and
special designs are available upon request.
