Yor Lok Fittings

Unread postAuthor: Velocity » Wed Aug 08, 2007 1:26 pm

I bought some Yor Lok compression fittings the other day, and I cannot figure out how to properly install them. Yor Lok fittings have both a front and a back ferrule. I know I could probably experiment, but I don't want to screw with these fittings, because they were very expensive. Any one ever worked with these before? I know the cone shaped one goes in front of the disk shaped one, which I presume means that it comes in contact with the compression nut? I need someone to clarify this... also, I need to know what is the proper orientation of both fittings.

So I guess just tell me which orientation (1, 2, 3, or 4) is <a href="http://s94.photobucket.com/albums/l112/rmich732/?action=view&current=Positions.jpg">correct</a>.

i think its 2, but i have no proof.

ive only used standard compression unions, but 2 looks the best to me.

They are compression fittings... really high pressure compression fittings.

I personally thought it was 1... 3 and 4 are just way out there, and wouldn't make sense.

Yeah, I looked at Swagelok's website, and found out the right answer. Thanks for everyone's help.

Actually none of them... The "tip" of the cone shaped ferrule goes into the compression fitting,followed by the back ferrule (with the smaller end touching the back of the cone), and finally followed by the compression nut.
