Idex Tools (Fittings)

Extender Tools

These tools can be used to tighten most of our knurled nuts in hard to reach places. See the application note on this page for knurl size and corresponding extender tool. For precise tightening, the extender tools listed with 1/4” hex drives are designed to adapt to any torque wrench with a female 1/4” socket, such as the VHP-4000 Torque Driver on page 8. The tools featured on this page also include the FlushNut™ wrenches, used to tighten the FlushNuts.

Wrenches

For your convenience, we offer wrenches in three standard sizes. You will need two A-304 wrenches to tighten most nuts into unions (for unions 1593 and U-352, you need one A-304 and one A-320 wrench). The IDEX Wrench is slotted to fit over 1/16” and 1/8” OD tubing, and has 1/4” and 5/16” internal hex ends, to engage with the heads of the hex-head fittings most commonly used with Rheodyne® valves and the stainless steel fittings.

Removal Tool

Use the LT-300 Removal Tool to detach LiteTouch® and Super Flangeless™ Ferrules from tubing. Simply slide the appropriate tool blade slot between the lock ring and the ferrule body. With a slight twist, the ring will pop off, releasing the ferrule from the tubing. Please Note: This Removal Tool will not work with the LT-135 Ferrule System.

Application NOTE:

The drawings represent actual size of the various knurled head designs of the Upchurch Scientific® nuts featured in this chapter. Select the appropriate extender tool for the knul pattern of the nut you’ve selected.
