All materials, seals, and plating conform to FDA standards and can come in contact with food.
Made of nickel-plated brass and fitted with a FKM O ring protected by a washer, LF3600 forged fittings may be used with all liquid and gaseous fluids compatible with these components, materials and temperatures up to 250° F (depending on the tube material).
For applications where the fitting is exposed to aggressive environments. Legris uses high phosphorous electroless nickel-plating for the LF3600 fitting range.
The electroless nickel-plating has a dull, flat finish. It adheres to more of the surface, such as in the root of the threads and grooves of the collet. It is resistant to water, harsh detergents and other aggressive fluids and environments. As a result, the LF3600 series offers superior chemical, corrosion and abrasive resistance.
All items in the LF3600 range are Silicone free
Working temperature: -4°F to +250°F
