After extensive design and testing, Franklin Fueling Systems is pleased to announce the launch of our new swivel and fixed fittings for our most popular FLEX-ING™ brand fuel hoses. The completely re-designed fittings come standard on all Hardwall, Softwall, Marina, and Cold-Weather hoses to deliver you a durable, reliable, and safe fuel hose solution.
New Swivel Fitting Construction
Insert (Nickel plated steel with chrome flash finish)
Nut & fixed fitting (AL chrome conversion coated)
Front bushing (injection modeled Acetal)
Rear bushing (injection molded Acetal)
Conductive spring (302 tempered stainless steel)
The new nickel plated steel fittings are now coated with an additional chrome flash finish. This extra level of protection helps to prevent both rust and accelerated wear. Our fittings now feature a longer thread with a more exacting taper to ensure a liquid-tight connection that will not bottom out before full tightening.
With the new design, the swivel fitting insert (1) features a lip (2) that sits outside of the swivel nut (3). This keeps the fitting body (4) securely in place, resisting pull-out from the hose ferrule (5).
These new fittings have already begun shipping on new Hardwall, Softwall, Marina, and Cold-Weather hoses. Please note there are no changes in pricing with these enhanced new standard fittings.
