Pic. 1 shows the fitting in the disconnected position. Insert the tubing with the pre-swaged ferrules into the fitting body making sure the front ferrule is firmly seated as shown in Pic. 2
Finger-tighten the nut and then with a wrench turn the nut to the original 9 o’clock position. At this point a slight
change of resistance will be felt. Tighten the nut slightly more as the change in resistance is felt and the installation is complete as shown in Pic. 3 by tightening slightly more.
Superlok Tube Fittings Installation
Insert the tubing into SUPERLOK Tube Fitting. At this
point, make sure that the tubing is in contact with the
shoulder of the fitting and then finger-tighten the nut.
Before tightening the SUPERLOK nut, mark the starting
point at the 6 o'clock position.
Hold the fitting body safely with a backup wrench and
tighten the nut 1-1/4 turn. (Marking the starting point at the 6 o'clock position will help reference the 1-1/4 revolution).
After 1-1/4 revolution, when the starting point is now at 9
o'clock position, you can easily confirm and see that
SUPERLOK Tube Fitting is installed accurately.
After 1-1/4 revolution of the SUPERLOK nut past
finger-tightening, make sure fitting is sufficiently
tightened using by the Gap Inspection Gage.
