INSERTA® IFRC 90° Flange Rotational Connectors offer one the means to integrate INSERTA® S.A.E 4 bolt-port pattern modules into stand-alone system assemblies. This is accomplished by installing the modules between an INSERTA® 90° Flange Rotational Connector and a 90° Flange Rotational Adapter.
INSERTA® Valves and Modular Connectors are effectively assembled by bolting these components together on the Code U461, Code 61 and Code 62 4-Bolt patterns. The assembly of these components saves space, time and money, eliminates piping leaks, and adds value and integrity to a system. Connecting a series of INSERTA® Code U461, Code 61 or Code 62 4-Bolt Modular Valves & Connectors together puts the interconnecting flow paths all in one plane, i.e. normally in the horizontal or vertical plane with flow passing between the large bolt spacing’s in the Code 61 and Code 62 bolt patterns.
The INSERTA® 90° Flange Rotational Retaining Adapters provide the means to rotate the flow plane 90° and thereby permit flow paths in both the horizontal and vertical planes. Design-A provides a clamp flange face seal on Face Ø and counterbored thru holes from Face 1 to Face Ø for use with socket head clamping bolts. The Flange port is rotated 90° on Face 1. The Design-A INSERTA® 90° Flange Rotational Retaining Adapter is also used with longer bolts to fasten together and terminate a series of stacked Code U461, Code 61 or Code 62 INSERTA® Modules. The Design-B adapter has a plain clamp face for those special applications that require this unique geometry. Together, these INSERTA® 90° Flange Rotational Retaining Adapters offer great flexibility in the design and assembly of multiplanar Code U461, Code 61 and Code 62 fluid flow systems.
The INSERTA® 90° Flange Rotational Retaining Adapters are available with the same Code and size ports, or with one reducing port size. They are also available with Code U461, Code 61, or Code 62 ports of the same size. The models with different Codes or port sizes on the adapters are pressure rated based on the lower of the two flange connections. INSERTA® Code U461 Flange Rotational Retainers should be specified to connect two Code U461 4-Bolt flanges when their higher-pressure rating is required. Likewise, specify the Code 62 with the Code U461 4-Bolt ports when it’s higher-pressure rating is required. These connector options further enhance the use and flexibility in assembling INSERTA® Modular Valves.
All INSERTA® 90° Flange Rotational Retaining Adapters are made of steel as standard. Custom adapters and adapters made from other materials can be provided whenever a customer’s design dictates a specialized requirement.
