Flared vs Flareless Fittings in the Aerospace Industry
Both flare and flareless fittings are commonly used in the aerospace industry, depending on the application. the AN (Army-Navy) military standard calls for tighter tolerances and defines all fitting types, where the JIC uses AN specifications as the base line for their own standards and covers fewer sizes.
Six Common Types of Aerospace Fittings
In the aerospace industry, sections of tubing are usually attached with flared or flareless (compression type) fittings, unlike steel pipe. The SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) establishes the requirements for fittings that are used in all types of fluid systems.
What it Means to be Nadcap Accredited
National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program (Nadcap) is a global cooperative accreditation program for aerospace engineering, defense, and related industries. It is an industry-managed approach to conformity assessment of ‘special processes’ that…
The Vital Role of Hydraulic Systems in Aircrafts
Hydraulic systems are used on aircraft to move and actuate landing gear, flaps and brakes. Larger aircraft rely heavily on these systems for flight controls, spoilers and thrust reversers. These systems are reliable due to using hydraulic fluid that is virtually incompressible and able to transmit high pressures while being lightweight and more durable in comparison to pneumatic systems.
What Types of Hydraulic Fluids Might You Find in an Aircraft?
Hydraulic fluids used in aircraft are relatively thin compared to industrial fluids. They must also be fire resistant, which is critical when the nearest fire department is five miles below, not a few blocks away.
The Purpose of Aerospace & Defense Certifications and Regulations
The aerospace and defense market comprises of passenger and military airplanes, helicopters, gliders, unmanned aerial vehicles, spacecraft, launch vehicles, satellites, and other aerospace fittings. In conjunction with the general defense industry, it is understandable their supply chains are subject to an abundance of certifications and regulations.
