A wide-ranging line of flange adapters from Swagelok Co., Solon, Ohio (www.swagelok.com), simplifies the transition from piping to tubing with better flow rates and fewer potential leak points.

The flanges have no welded or threaded connections. The connectors meet ANSI, DIN, EN, and JIS standards. They come in sizes ranging from NPS 0.5 to 2.0 in., and DN 10 to 50. Pressure class ratings include ANSI 150 to 2500, DIN PN2.5 to 320, and JIS10K to 63K. Sealing faces can be raised face, RTJ, and tongueand-groove. And for a leak-tight seal, there are Swagelok tube fittings and adapter end connectors.
