The Mechanisms of LET-LOK Tube Fittings

If you’re looking for the most high-quality, leak-tight tube fittings, look no further. The HAM-LET Group’s LET-LOK® brand has been leading the market since 1950 with tubing for every type of system. The brand brings to the market the most progressive and superior leak-tight tube fitting solutions available today.

What does LET-LOK® Entail?

LET-LOK® encompasses a vast range of industrial-standard mechanisms. With leading-edge technology, they are able to professionally seal and grip almost any tubing. In fact, to provide for the differences that exist between every industrial application, Let-Lok tube and pipe fittings come in a wide range of materials. In addition, LET-LOK® mechanisms are ideal for austere and high-pressure environments.

Industry experts have invested 50 years of a time and effort in the research, design, and manufacture of these systems to ensure products that meet the fast-growing call for tube fittings that can endure high-performance, high-pressure and vacuum environments — for example power, petrochemical, nuclear, electronic, fluid, and other key industrial settings.

How LET-LOK® Operates

LET-LOK® connectors are extremely advanced when it comes to ease-of-use. They are also designed for easy assembly. One simply inserts the tube into the full assembly until the tube bottoms-out against the fitting body. Then, by rotating the nut clockwise, the mechanical force created pushes the two ferrules onward between the nut and the fitting body.

The back ferrule is pushed against the front ferrule’s tapered back and the front ferrule is in turn pushed into the body’s tapered mouth. The back ferrule is swaged radially inwards on the tube, while lifting the front ferrule out to form a full-faced seal on the tapered body surface. Lastly, the 11/4 and 3/4 turn (depending on size) of the nut from the hand-tight position, confirms flawless drive of all the sealing components. This delivers extra reassurance that the seal can withstand ultra-high vacuum and high pressure conditions.

Safety Guaranteed

HAM-LET considers safety a crucial factor and every LET-LOK® mechanism has undergone and passed austere tolerance tests, from those for vibration, to high-pressure, temperature, impulse, and vacuum. The fittings are also designed according to stringent standards with up-to-the-minute computerized automation. They have therefore proved that they are robust enough to withstand all conditions. Their geometry and mechanical advantage also make sure they remain leak-tight.

Moreover clients receive rich information and recommendations on choosing the right product for their application to guarantee maximum results that are secure and safe. A good example is that clients in the gas sector should choose tubing with enhanced wall thickness for more safety and efficacy. It is not only essential to select connectors according to specific requirements, but to install, work and maintain them correctly. When choosing a connector one should also consider application details, material compatibility, and product ratings to further ensure personal safety.

HAM-LET also ensures client safety and peace of mind by backing all its fittings with a guarantee that they were made by industry experts and according to the highest quality-control standards!
