The SAE 45° Flare connections are commonly used for low pressure applications such as refrigerant lines, fuel lines, and automotive piping systems. Both the SAE male and female halves have a 45° flare seat. The threads of the two halves engage to form a strong mechanical connection. The seal is formed on the 45° flare seat. Except for the seat angles, the SAE 45° Flare connectors are identical to JIC 37° Flare connectors.
