Hose Fittings, Couplings,Hardware
Hose fittings is a connection between pipes or machines, it’s disassembled and assembled connection point between component and pipe. Hose fitting plays an indispensable and important role in pipe/ hose assembly. It is one of the two main components of hydraulic pipelines. Pipe fittings are used for linear instruments connection. The connection forms are socket welding or threaded connection. Mainly used for small diameter low-pressure pipelines, used in places where need to be frequently assembled and disassembled, or as the final adjustment of threaded pipe fittings. The structure should adopt a metal surface contact sealing structure. The gasket sealing structure style is usually used for conveying water, oil, air and other general pipelines, and it is made of malleable cast iron. In addition, use requirements and price are also factors need to be considered when selecting.
There are many types of pipe joints. Commonly used pipe/tube/hose fittings can generally be divided into two types: hard pipe fittings and hose fittings. According to the connection method of pipe joints and pipes, there are three types of hard pipe fittings: flaring, ferrule, quick coupling, crimping, detachable and welding, while hose fittings is mainly crimped hose fittings.
Commonly used hose fittings are camlock coupling, storz/bauer coupling, tri clamps, clamps, ground joint coupling, strainers, KC nipple/hose mender, flanges, valves, ferrules, threaded couplings, and so on. Camlock and tri calmp is an excellent choice for applications in low pressure fluid handling.
Matters Needing Attention
From Since the pipe joint is a detachable connection element, it must meet the requirements of normal connection stability, strong sealing, reasonable size, small pressure loss, good process performance, etc., but also must meet the requirements of convenient disassembly and assembly . Therefore, do not underestimate the small pipe fittings, because only its existence can support the existence of the entire hydraulic system.
