Walterscheid™ WALPro™ Metric Flareless Tube Fittings

Feb. 26, 2009
Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation today announced the expanded North American availability of Eaton Walterscheid WALPro fittings that feature a unique two-edge cutting ring technology with a combination of high axial strength and radial flexibility that provides a full 360 deg tube seal while eliminating deformation due to over tightening. The WALPro System is designed for use in hydraulic systems on industrial equipment, mobile equipment and more. WALPro products are available via the Eaton distribution network for global customers.“The WALPro fittings utilize an advanced profile ring designed for both performance and safe assembly,” said Gary Lisenbee, Eaton product manager. “During assembly, the two cutting edges of the profile ring penetrate the tube, creating a safe and reliable seal while the top area of the profile ring seals along the 24 degree surface of the fittings body. The profile ring’s geometry also provides the necessary axial strength to minimize over-torquing, a common error during tube fitting assembly.”WALPro fittings exceed both DIN 2353 and ISO 8431-1 requirements to provide standards-compliant connections. They are available in a full range of standard metric tube sizes are suitable for use with all common tube materials.
