More About Brass Compression Fittings;
is one of the best and most common materials used for making Fittings.
Brass as a construction material is an alloy (primarily) of copper and zinc. Brass Compression Fittings
are in high demand because of some inherent properties which make them superior to other materials. Brass Compression Fittings
are for the conveyance of Water, Hydraulic Fluids, Pneumatic Applications, Flammable Gases, Slurries, Chemicals, etc.
Compression Tee Fittings are designed as an easy and economical method of connecting tubing with the assurance of a tight joint that can be rapidly connected and disconnected without leakage. By using Compression aka ball sleeve tube fittings, soldering and flaring are eliminated. Compression Ball sleeve tube fitting connections are made by slipping the nut and sleeve over the tubing and inserting the tubing into the fitting. The nut is then tightened onto the fitting and the action of turning the nut compresses the inner sleeve and makes the sleeve a component part of the tubing. The angle of the compressed sleeve makes a leak proof joint between the tubing and fitting. Compression fittings are sold complete with nuts and sleeves. When using plastic tube, make sure to use a plastic sleeve (delrin sleeve), inner sleeve, and tube support (aka tube insert).
Brass Compression Fittings
are used in industrial and residential applications because they are strong and durable. The advantages of using Brass for Compression Fittings
includes its good corrosive resistance, and also its plating, joining, polishing and finishing characteristics. Brass
as a material is easily machined and so it can be given any shape of the various types of Fittings available.

- Cut tubing to desired length.
- Slide nut and then sleeve on tube. Threaded end “A” of nut must face toward fitting.
- Insert tubing into fitting body. Be sure tubing is bottomed on fitting shoulder.
- Lubricate threads and assemble nut to fitting body.
- Tighten nut hand tight. From that point, tighten with a wrench the number of turns indicated;
1/8" thru 1/4" - 1-1/4 Turns"
5/16" - 1-3/4 Turns"
3/8" thru 1" - 2-1/4 Turns"
