Straight tube

MDC Europe ISO KF and ISO LF tube fittings are convenient building-block components. They offer great flexibility in the design and construction of high vacuum systems. All fittings are fabricated from 304 stainless steel drawn and welded vacuum tubing. Flanges do not need to be rotatable since they are completely symmetric. If desired, rotatable bolt ring assemblies can be retrofitted to existing claw-clamp style flanges to add bolt holes to ISO LF fittings.

Reducers are used for a change in size of flanges within a single method of sealing, such as elastomer sealing of ISO KF and LF flanges.

Note: Zero-length reducers are not possible with ISO style flanges.
