Hydraulic hose fittings are essential components for connecting hydraulic hoses and pipes. They come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and types, and are used to join two or more hydraulic components together.
O-rings, angle-coupled joints, and threaded joints are the three most common types of hydraulic hose fittings, but there are several more available. QC Hydraulics offers a wide selection of stainless steel hydraulic fittings, so you can find the right one for your needs.
But how do you identify the design, connection type, sealing method, thread, etc. of a hydraulic hose connector? With decades of experience in supplying quality products, QC Hydraulics can package and ship the correct hydraulic hose connector to your workplace. It's important to remember that once a hydraulic hose assembly is damaged or something goes wrong, the connector must be discarded. That's why it's essential to identify the port connections and ends of the accessory before purchasing or using it.
Crimped type hydraulic hoses are the most commonly used because they are considered the modern type. However, this makes it difficult to identify most hydraulic hoses for purchase, repair work, or equipment modification. To make sure you get the right fitting for your needs, it's important to understand the different types of fittings available and their features.
Types of Hydraulic Hose FittingsThe three main types of hydraulic hose fittings are O-rings, angle-coupled joints, and threaded joints.
O-rings are used to seal two components together by creating a tight seal between them. Angle-coupled joints are used to connect two components at an angle, while threaded joints are used to connect two components with threads. Other types of fittings include flange fittings, quick-connect fittings, and swivel fittings. Flange fittings are used to connect two components with a flange connection. Quick-connect fittings are used to quickly connect two components without having to use tools or screws.
Swivel fittings are used to connect two components at an angle while allowing them to rotate freely.
Identifying Hydraulic Hose FittingsWhen identifying a hydraulic hose fitting, it's important to consider the design, connection type, sealing method, thread type, and size. The design refers to the shape of the fitting and how it connects with other components. The connection type refers to how the fitting connects with other components. The sealing method refers to how the fitting seals against other components. The thread type refers to the type of thread used on the fitting and how it connects with other components.
The size refers to the diameter of the fitting and how it fits into other components.
