Instructions

To determine maximum allowable working pressures for tubing at elevated temperatures, multiply the applicable tube’s maximum allowable working pressure from Tubing Allowable Work Pressure Table  by the corresponding temperature stress factor from Pressure-Temperature Derating Table above.

Duolok tube fittings function reliably in applications ranging from cryogenic temperatures to high temperature bake out with the tube fitting material as the limiting factor. It is important to note that elevated temperatures will reduce the maximum working pressure capability of the tubing system. (For more information regarding the effects of temperature on tubing pressure ratings, refer to Table 5 regarding temperature stress factors in SSP’s Selection Guide for Instrumentation Fittings and Tubing).
