Stauff expands weld fittings range

New model series for demanding applications, e.g. in power plants

With the series FI-SNR and FI-ASV, Stauff expands the product range of Stauff Connect weld fittings. This connection technology is being replaced increasingly by easy-to-install forming systems, e.g. Stauff Form, in various applications. But it will still retain its place in the market in the future, especially in the demanding heavy industry and in power plant engineering.

As a full-range provider in the premium segment, Stauff is therefore developing this product range further: Two more model series are now available. The first one, with the designation FI-SNR, consists of 24° weld fittings with cone and O-ring. These allow users to adapt tubes through welding with a standard fitting body with a standard 24° inner cone, whereby the nominal size of the tube to be connected is smaller than that of the fitting body – therefore the reduction. This model series is available in the sizes 8/6L (Light Series) up to 30/25S (Heavy Series).

The second series, FI-ASV, is a straight weld fitting for tubes. It is supplied as a set consisting of weld cone, fitting body for welding and a conventional cap nut. This fitting connects two tubes with the same outer diameters, whereby welding is required at both ends. These fittings are available from the Heavy Series in the sizes 10S to 38S.

Just like the FI-SNR series, the fittings from the FI-ASV series are also supplied with phosphate coating, as this surface coating allows the components to be welded without any health risks. All other components (fitting bodies, cap nuts), however, feature the high-quality zinc/nickel coating which is standard for the Stauff Connect range.

With these two new model series, Stauff expands the standard catalogue range of weld fittings in the extensive Stauff Connect range, which previously already featured four different versions: straight bulkhead weld fittings, straight weld fittings, angled weld fittings and 24° weld cones with O-ring. Now, users can choose from six model series.
