FLARE FITTING, COPPER PIPE PLUMBING
Description: Externally, this looks like a compression fitting, consisting of a short fitting threaded on each end as well as a nut on each end.
Buying information: Flares are more secure than compression fittings. For this reason they are most often used for oil, gas, and other lines carrying flammable liquids.
How-to hints: Use a flaring tool to expand the end of the pipe, into which the fitting then fits snugly and is held tight by a nut. Apply nut onto pipe before making flare to end of pipe.
