Flare fittings are compression fittings
designed using metal tubing. To create the fitting, the manufacturer first adds a flare on one end followed by a nut referred to as a flare nut. When making an assembly using flare fitting, the flared tubing (tapered on one end) is secured using the flare nut. The nut helps to make the assembly leak proof and pressure resistant.Flare fittings are recommended for plumbing applications when using soldered joints is not desirable. For example, flare fittings are ideal for pipes or tubes carrying flammable gases or petroleum. Most flare fittings are designed using brass. However, it is also possible to find some designed with alloy steel. There are instances when local authorities might have restrictions on the type of materials that should be used to manufacture flare fittings.
