Unions and valves. Unique radial connection system.

SERTO AG is a Swiss manufacturer, almost centenary, whose products have been used globally and successfully in diverse industries and applications. The unique features of this system of radial mounting and dismounting are highly valued by the customers.

From simple tube connections to complex system solutions. Over time, a complete line of products that includes tube fittings, valves, hoses and accessories has been created for any fluid that needs to be conveyed, distributed or regulated.

SERTO is not only renowned for its intelligent systems and wide range of products, but also for its extensive know-how, fast delivery and modern logistics. As a part of the customer focus, SERTO provides support in planning, manufacturing and distribution of its top quality products.

The radial principle

The SERTO radial system is unique. Thanks to this design, tube connections can be easily installed and disassembled. This saves time and money, because all of the components can be re-used, as nothing will be bent or damaged. In addition, the screw fittings can also be easily installed in very confined spaces.

Connect and save

The price for a tube system is determined by three factors: the fittings, the tube and the assembly time. If the tube system has to be dismantled, with SERTO you can save 30 % of the costs due to the inverse sealing function of its clamping ring screw fittings.

Elimination of the body cone of the fitting

In contrast to all other tube fittings, the sealing cone-shaped clampling ring is not in the body of the SERTO fitting, but rather in the nut. The plane surface of the body of the fitting permitt that components included in a tube system can be radially removed from the system.

Increased safety and time saving

For dismantling or reassembly, only the nuts of the relevant screw fitting need to be loosened. For more rapid assembly, the tubes can be pre-assembled with a nut and clamping ring and inserted radially into the piping network. This is not possible with a conical screw fitting.

More tubes in the same space

Because with SERTO the tubes do not penetrate into the body of the fitting, but rather are only in front of it, the body can be one or two spanner sizes smaller than a conical fitting. If the body is smaller, so are the nuts. The few millimetres which are saved make a big difference. More tubes can be installed in parallel in the same space.

SERTO components can be combined like the elements in a building block set. The basic elements of our standard program are straight unions, male adaptors with various threads, elbows, panel and banjo unions as well as L, T and cross unions. Together with connecting parts from SERTO, innumerable, individual, compact solutions with metal-to-metal seals are available for prompt delivery.

Possibility of connection 1 (illustration, left side)

Connecting part replaces the compression ferrule, instead of the standard compression ferrule use​.​

  • Reduction compression ferrule, in order to reduce by up to two dimensions
  • Plug, to temporarily close off the line
  • Tube stub, as replacement for a short tube section

Possibility of connection 2 (illustration, lower side)

Connecting part replaces compression ferrule and union nut, instead of nut and compression ferrule use.

  • Male adaptor, to change to other thread types and sizes
  • Female adaptor, to change to other thread types and sizes, as well as from external to internal thread

Possibility of connection 3 (illustration, right side)

Connecting part is mounted on the standard connection and acts as a tube, in addition to the standard connection use.

  • Hose nozzle, to connect a hose
  • Adjustable nipples with an imitation tube socket for an adjustable connection
  • Reduction unions, to connect smaller tube diameters

SERTO unions consist of a base part, compression ferrule, connection nut and reinforcing sleeve. Reinforcing sleeves are recommended for thin-walled tubes and plastic hoses because they stabilise the tube inner wall and provide enough resistance for necking.

In contrast to products from other suppliers, where the nut and the base part interlock conically, SERTO unions seal on the flat metal surfaces that are pressed together.

Benefits and advantages of SERTO radial mounting and metal-to-metal seal

  • Practical design enables installations even where space is limited
  • Radial mounting allows maintenance task considerably easier: time and money saving
  • Flat metal sealing concept avoids materials that can age over time
  • Compression ferrule unions do not damage tubes and hoses
