A pipe ferrule is a type of pipe fitting made of various materials used especially for joining or binding one part to another (as pipe sections). A pipe ferrule consists of a circular clamp which is used to hold together and attach fibers, wires or posts. It is a type of a ring or cap attached to an object to protect against damage, splitting or wear. A pipe ferrule is also known as a circular fitting device that is used to hold the pipes together.
Pipe ferrules are available in various sizes. Pipe ferrules of larger sizes are designed in such a way that they have special hardening processes which can offer better leak resistance and tube holding at higher pressures.
An ISO 9001:2008 Certified Company, Reliable Steel Distributor Industries is a leading manufacturer, supplier and stockholder of compression tube fittings, also known as ferrule fittings in stainless steel 304 and 316 grades. On demand we can also offer ferrule fittings in other grades such as brass, copper, nickel alloys and carbon steel. Double ferrule fittings are require no flaring of the metal tube to install. They are compressed onto the tubing to form strong leak proof connection in process, power and instrumentation applications.
The single and double ferrule fittings are available in a broad range of sizes, materials, and configurations. Stainless steel ferrule fittings are widely used in hydraulic and pneumatic applications in a range of industries such as oil and gas, petrochemicals, natural gas, fertilizers and power generation.
Our ferrule tube fittings, instrumentation tube fittings and compression tube fittings are regularly exported to Brazil, South Africa, UAE, Bahrain, Italy, Indonesia, Malaysia, United States, Mexico, Chine, Brazil, Peru, Nigeria, Kuwait, Jordan, Dubai, Thailand (Bangkok), Venezuela, Iran, Germany, UK, Canada, Russia, Turkey, Australia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, South Africa, Kazakhstan and Saudi Arabia, Oman.
Double Stainless Steel Ferrule Fittings – Construction
The basic general stainless steel ferrule tube fitting is a 4 piece fitting set comprising of a nut, back ferrule, front ferrule and the body. With the addition of tubing at the time of installation, it becomes a 5 piece solid sealed connection.

Benefits of Pipe Ferrule:
Some important benefits of pipe ferrule are as follows:
- Pipe ferrules are used widely in compression fittings for attaching piping.
- They are used with the connector to connect the fiber cable either to another cable or to a transmitter or receiver.
- Pipe ferrules keep the fibers accurately aligned within the connector.
- Pipe ferrule is used to align and protect the stripped end of a fiber.
