Function of progressive ring fittings

A
G
E

The EO progressive ring fitting produces a keyed, leak


free connection of tubes and components in fluid systems. The basic function of the EO progressive ring is the
controlled progressive bite of the ring into the tube due to
a unique internal geometry.
The front cutting edge (A) has already started cutting into
the tube before the second cutting edge (B) starts. As
soon as both cuffing edges have cut the tube to the
designed depth further advance is limited by the stop
edge (C).
Owing to the design of both cutting edges and stop edge
all forces arising are equally distributed. This distribution
along with the specially designed interior collar (D) of the
ring guarantees increased safety with regard to flexure

stresses. Thus vibrations are eliminated from the


cutting area.
The stop edge causes a sharp increase in tightening forces which is clearly perceptible. After
assembly a visible collar (E) of cut tube material
must completely fill the space in front of the first
cutting edge. With stainless steel tube and hose
connections made from free cutting steel, the collar is less due to the harder material.
It is absolutely essential that the tube should be
held firmly against the stop in the inner cone of the
fitting otherwise the cutting process cannot take
place satisfactorily. Reassembly can be performed an unlimited number of times.

be added on to the part number specified. Types,
which are not part of the standard range, are denoted by weights in brackets. Series LL fittings and brass
fittings are supplied with cutting rings in place of progressive rings. Standard range fittings are supplied in
factory packaging for practical storage and protection
against contamination. Ordering should be made in
multiples of box quantities.
These box quantities are to be found from the respective price list. For quantities less than a box may be
obtained from an E.O. Distributor.

Body only If the basic fitting body only is required, the part number
is prefixed by X and the letter P is omitted eg XGE 20SR.

Less Tube Nuts and Rings only If you require fittings which normally consist of
many pieces i.e. banjos, but without the tube nut
and ring, then the suffix /OMD is to be added to
the standard part number, eg. WH20-SR/OMD. The
P is not required.
Fitted with Weld Nipples If the fitting is to be fitted complete with weld nipples SKA and not progressive ring then add 6 in
front of the tube diameter size in the part number.
Also add the required wall thickness after the tube
diameter. eg. GE 620x3-SR.
Steel, Zinc yellow chromated If you require the fittings zinc yellow chromated,
the suffix /A3C is to be added to the standard
part number, eg. GE20-PSR/A3C.
Stainless Steel and Brass Fittings - If your require
stainless steel or brass fittings add suffix /71
for stainless steel or suffix /MS for brass to the
standard part number, eg. GE20-PSR/71 or GE20SR/MS.
Note:

The letter P is not included as Brass rings


are not of the progressive design.

Sealing material FPM (eg. Viton) If you require fittings with other sealing material
(NBR eg. buna N is standard) the suffix /VI (for

Pressure reductions

Definition of pressures specified:

Required pressure reductions (determined by the medium) compared with the specifications for higher temperatures.

a) Nominal pressure NP
The nominal pressure as referred to in DIN 2401,
part 1 draft.
b) Working pressure PB
The permissible working pressure for a component
is based on the material and the operation temperature (TB) during trouble free operation (DIN 2401,
part 1 draft).
Permissible operating temperature (TB) range for
fitting materials:
Steel:
-40 to +1200C
(DIN 3859)
Brass:
-60 to +1750C
Stainless steel:
-60 to +4000C
(DIN 17 440, AD W 10)
The specifications in the Pressure reductions section
are to be observed here.
For sealing materials
NBR (e.g. Perbunan): -35 to +1000C
FPM (e.g. Viton):
-25 to +2000C
PTFE (e.g. Teflon):
-60 to +2000C
(Only with banjo
fittings WH/TH)
POM (e.g. Delrin)
-40 to +800C
(Only with ball valves)
Perbunan = registered trademark of Bayer. Viton,
Teflon and Delrin = registered trademarks of Du Pont.
The temperature limits specified for sealing materials
are approximate values, since the temperature limits
can be greatly influenced by the medium.
When combining the different fitting and sealing materials, the lowest temperature limit in each case is
applicable.
Example: GE 10-PLR made from 1.4571 sealed with
cutting face.
Temperature range: -60 to +4000C
GE10-PRL-ED made from 1.4571 with
EOLASTIC seal made from FPM
Temperature range:
Fittings material
-60 to +4000C
ED seal
-25 to +2000C
Premissible temperature range of fitting:
-25 to +4000C, if the medium permits a temperature of 2000C for the ED seal.

If the tube material used deviates from the fitting material, the tube is to be checked separately with regard to
the permissible temperature range and the possible
pressure reductions required. Male stud fittings may
require additional pressure reductions, due to the mating port material and the sealing system must also be
taken into account. For male stud fittings with cutting
face, additional sealants may be required.
If different stipulations for special applications are made
by standards, regulations or approvals with regard to
permissible pressure reductions to be applied if necessary, then these stipulations made are binding.

The nominal pressures NP and operating pressures (PB)


represent the max. permissible operating pressure
peaks, in which the temperature limits and pressure
reductions listed in the above tables must be taken into
account.
Operational safety at static load:
Types with NP specification: 4 x
Types with PB specification: complete fitting min. 2.5 x,
tube connection 4x
(if not otherwise specified).
These pressure and safety specifications are based on
all assemblies being in accordance to Parker-Ermeto
instructions.
It is further assumed that the tube routing will be laid
and clamped in such a fashion that no additional stress,
load or tension may act on the fittings. Tube fixtures are
to be laid with sufficient stability according to the operating conditions and connected with supports. EO tube
clamps are recommended for simple, problem-free
assembly.

Unit Construction System


The basic range of fittings i.e. GE, WE, SV etc. may
be combined with adapters to achieve a construction for fittings not available as a one piece fitting
thus eliminating specials.
Adapters available are:
RI
Reducing thread adaptors
RED
Reducing standpipe with swivel nut
EGE
Straight stud standpipe with swivel nut
EW, ET, EL Adjustable swivel nut fittings
MAVE
Pressure gauge fitting with swivel nuts

Examples of combining fittings together


1) Adjustable male stud fitting-using the EGE
fitting combined with basic tube to tube fittings i.e. W, T, K etc.
2) Tube reducer or step down. For example
smaller tube size on the branch. Ideal part
would be TR 15/12/15-PL. This may be
achieved with T15-PL fitted with RED 15/12L.
3) Male stud with non-standard thread size for
the tube size. Achieved with the standard
stud fitting fitted with the appropriate RE
adapter e.g. required GE 12-PL/R 1/2-ED
use GE 12-PLR plus RI 1/2 ED x 3/8.
4) By combining swivel nut fittings EW,T, L etc.
to basic fittings a multitude of configurations,
adaptions can be achieved simply, cheaply
and in a compact manner. (see diagram
below).

90.
EO special steel tubes.

These tubes are particularly recommended for


tube fittings, since the tube outer diameter and
wall thickness, tolerances correspond to those
of steel tubes in accordance with DIN 2391.
For brass fittings:
Seamless drawn copper tube made from material with short code SF-Cu F37 in accordance with
DIN 1786.
Copper tube is not part of the Parker-Ermeto
range.
Tube wall thicknesses:
In order to ascertain the required tube wall thicknesses, the calculation for pressures of steel
tubes and stainless steel tubes can be used.
Strengthening sleeves must be used if necessary
in cases of thin-wall tubes, applications in order
to avoid excessive tube restrictions.

Assembling in hardened pre-assembly body (VOMO)


with subsequent final assembly
A) Inspection of pre-assembly bodies (VOMO)
For frequent assembly of stainless
steel tube as well as hose standpipe
fittings pre-assembly must take
place exclusively in the pre-assembly bodies VOMO or with preassembly tools/machines.

15

16

The cones of the pre-assembly bodies VOMO are subject to normal wear
and must be checked regularly (after
every 50th pre-assembly) with cone
gauges for trueness. Untrue preassembly bodies must be replaced to
avoid poor quality assemblies.

Use of cone gauges:


The rear of the gauge most protrude
slightly above the top face of the 24o
cone or may be flush with the top
face.
If these conditions are not satisfied,
the pre-assembly body is no longer
dimensionally correct. Bodies must
be checked visually for longitudinal
scoring or other damage which
would not be shown by the gauge.

I) Check of final assembly


28

Loosen the nut remove tube and


check whether a clearly visible collar
fills space in front of the first cutting
edge. The collar for stainless tubes
is less than for steel tubes due to the
material hardness. It does not matter if the progressive ring can be
rotated on the tube end.

Put pre-installed tube into fitting


body, tighten by approx. 1/2 turns of
nut beyond point of clearly preceptible resistance.

Final assembly of all pre-assembled


fittings (EVW, EVT, EVL, EVGE-ED,
MAV-EV and KOR) is made in the
appropriate body (well lubricated) with
at least 1/2 turn of the nut beyond the
point of a clearly perceptible resistance.

J) Repeated assembly
29

On remaking joint, nut to be tightened without increased effort, body


to be held tight.

The assembly of stainless steel tube is


made easier by unscrewing the nut a
few times and treating the thread with
lubricant. (This applies for paste and
spray-on lubricants). For liquid lubricants loosening of the nut is sufficient
so that lubricant can get between the
contact surfaces.
It is recommended that test assemblies
should be made before hand with
tubes of a greater rigidity or special
materials. If in doubt, please send us
an approx. 30cm long tube end for test
assembly.

Assembling with support sleeves (VH)


Fig. 1

The thickness of the tube wall is often governed by the requirements of the internal pressure without taking the tube fittings and any
external influences into account. If the tube wall
thickness is relatively low in relation to the
external diameters of the tube this may lead to
greater tube limitations (as a rule, the tube constriction should not exceed 0,3mm for tubes up
to o.d. 16 and 0,4 mm for tubes from o.d. 18
upwards).
When assembling thin walled tubing there is
insufficient cross sectional rigidity where the
progressive ring cuts. This will have a detrimental effect on the sealing efficiency.
For this support sleeves VH are available which
are inserted in tube to prevent constriction and
increase the cross-sectional rigidity respectively.
Their shape allows them to be inserted easily in
the tube. One end of the EO support sleeve is
enlarged on its external diameter by a knurl.
On insertion this knurl forces itself into the inte- Fig. 2
rior wall of the tube and secures the sleeve
against shifting or falling out during assembly
and without widening the tube end.
Steel tubes made of St 35 or soft metal tubes
can be checked in accordance with tables 1
and 2 to see if they require support sleeves; for
plastic tubes stop (support) sleeves are always
necessary.
