After 30 years we have improved our Exclusive Electrically Isolated Titanium Heat Exchanger Fitting Design - now PATENTED.
Above you see an actual Titanium Isolation Fitting cut in half (including the oring and Teflon Isolation ring) The Copper and Titanium tubes are mockups included to show how the fittings assemble in the Heat Siphon.
Part of our Patent is the new one piece teflon isolator ring which snaps over the Titanium Tube Weld Fitting and holds the o-ring in place right side up or upside down. The unique patented designed shape of both the ring and the mating brass and titanium parts compresess the teflon and forms it "around the bend".
SEE The Right Sidebar for an animation of the NEW Fitting being assembled.
This NEW Teflon Ring replaces TWO teflon washers, one of which was not easily field replaceable since it was put on the titanium tube BEFORE we welded the titanium fitting on the tube, so replacing it had to be split at an angle to allow it to go over the titanium fitting and get behind it. Although this is an extremely rare repair, we had the need to perform this field repair on older units.
When we were developing this new fitting, we made many prototypes and experimented with several different shapes until we discovered this final design configuration. Once it is tightened the parts bottom out and set the teflon ring so it stays on and grabs the titanium fitting everytime with no leaks.
And we manufacture all four fittings in house at our CNC machining facility. Brass & titanium fittings and teflon ring - lower cost & higher quality.
