Compression fittings consists a compression nut, an olive and body or housing. They are used to connect two pipes together or a pipe to a fixture or valve. When installing the compression fitting to a pipe the nut is tightened and the olive is compressed between the nut and the receiving fitting; causing both ends of the olive to be swaged onto the pipe. When properly tightened the olive seals the space between the pipe, nut, and receiving fitting, thereby forming a tight joint.
Currie & Warner supply many different types of compression fittings. We can also assemble the items so our customers can sell the compression fitting complete.
