Flanges, Fittings & Adapters

Flanges, Fittings, Adapters and Hardware Catalog Section


Nor-Cal Products Flanges, Fittings, and Accessories  (PDF)

ASA, ISO, NW, CF, and Wire Seal Flanges, Fittings,  Adapters, Flexhouse, Couplings and PVC Hose, Tubing and Accessories.  

Our flanges are made from 304 stainless steel material, which is specially processed to reduce impurities, grain size and microscopic leak paths. They are available in all commonly used high and ultra-high vacuum flange types, including ASA, NW (ISO-KF), ISO, CF and wire seal flanges. We also offer chain clamps and metal seals to convert a high vacuum NW flange to ultra-high vacuum.

Flange-to-Flange and Flange-to-Fitting Adapters
Nor-Cal Products provides a broad range of adapter fittings in order to connect two dissimilar types of components. They are made from 304 or 316L stainless steel and are TIG welded, cleaned and leak checked for vacuum service. Tube finishes are normally bead blasted. However, tumbled or electropolished finish can be provided upon request. Flanges and nipples used to adapt different sizes of the same flange type are called reducers. 

Weld Fittings
Fittings are available with or without flanges. Weld fittings (without flanges) are typically sold to mechanical contractors for use during the fit up phase of new fab construction. Nor-Cal Products provides a broad range of adapter fittings in order to connect two dissimilar types of components. They are made from 304 stainless steel and are TIG welded, cleaned and leak checked for vacuum service.

Flexhose, Couplings and PVC hose
Flexible stainless steel hoses are available in three thicknesses to accommodate many applications and bend radius requirements. Nor-Cal’s flexible couplings have more convolutions than comparable products, resulting in greater flexibility and lower spring rates. Plasticized PVC hoses can be used as a low cost rough vacuum line. 

 

304 & 316L Stainless Steel Tubing
Nor-Cal’s consumption of stainless steel tubing for its own products makes it possible to offer 304 and 316L stainless steel tubing in lengths up to 20 feet. 304 stainless steel tubing standard finishes are white pickled (Number 1 unpolished), bright annealed or polished OD and ID, depending on the size. 316L stainless steel tubing is offered with a bright annealed finish only. Bright annealed and polished tubing has been pickled and passivated. Polished tube can be described as No. 4 polished. The surface meets ASTM A270, and has received a 150 grit polish on the OD and 180 grit on the ID. Special cleaning, materials and surface finishes are available for an additional charge.
