MK Series Single Element Sealing Metal-to-Metal
Featured Product from Conax Technologies
Conax Technologies Model MK Midlock Glands seal a single tube or probe. Featuring a metal-to-metal seal rather than our standard soft sealant technology, MK glands are used where a joint must be opened and resealed in the same setting. Their unique design forms the seal well within the body housing to provide superior performance in high vibration applications.
The MK gland uses compression to deform a stainless steel ferrule against the tube/probe without cutting the sheath surface. A slight deformation of the tube/probe surface may occur, however. MK glands are freely adjustable until first tightened. After that, they may be opened and resealed at that fixed immersion depth.
The rugged reusable body and ferrule are constructed from 303SST standard. (For information on body materials, see page 9.) The single ferrule is self-aligning to prevent lost pieces. Standard assemblies use Cap Style A with a mounting thread only. Please consult a Conax Technologies sales engineer for custom needs.
