Hydraulic Fittings & Couplings
Hydraulic hose fittings connect hydraulic hoses to transfer hydraulic fluid, oil, air, and gasoline through the piping system. They are commonly used to connect hoses with different thread types or sizes and are ideal for field installation and field servicing. SANYEFLEX hydraulic hose joint has a raised bulge, can grasp the inside of the hose, in order to secure it firmly in place. The buckle hydraulic hose connector is secured to the hydraulic hose by the buckle device for permanent connection in a custom hydraulic hose assembly.
SANYEFLEX hydraulic fittings are essential components used in hydraulic systems to connect, control, and redirect fluid flow within a hydraulic system. These fittings play a critical role in ensuring that hydraulic systems operate efficiently and safely. Hydraulic systems use pressurized fluid to transmit power, making them common in various applications, including industrial machinery, construction equipment, automotive systems, and more.
Types of Fittings: Hydraulic fittings come in various types, each designed for specific purposes. The common types include:
Adapters: Used to connect hoses or pipes with different thread types or sizes.
Couplings: Designed to quickly connect or disconnect hydraulic lines. Common types include quick disconnect couplings.
Connectors: Join pipes, hoses, or tubing together to create a continuous fluid path.
Elbows and Tees: Allow for changes in direction or splitting of fluid flow.
Flanges: Provide a secure method to connect pipes or hoses using bolts or welding.
Materials: Hydraulic fittings are typically made from materials that can withstand the high pressures and fluid compatibility of hydraulic systems. Common materials include steel, stainless steel, brass, and sometimes aluminum.
Thread Types: Different thread types are used in hydraulic fittings, such as NPT (National Pipe Thread), BSP (British Standard Pipe), and metric threads. The choice of thread type depends on the application and the region's standard.
Sealing Methods: Proper sealing is crucial to prevent fluid leaks and maintain system integrity. Common sealing methods include O-rings, gaskets, and cone-type seals.
Installation: Correct installation of hydraulic fittings is important for system safety and efficiency. Over-tightening fittings can damage threads or seals, while under-tightening can lead to leaks.
Pressure Ratings: Hydraulic fittings are rated for specific pressure ranges. It's important to choose fittings that can handle the maximum pressure of the hydraulic system to ensure safety and reliable operation.
Maintenance: Regular inspection and maintenance of hydraulic fittings are essential to prevent leaks, damage, or wear. Replacing worn-out or damaged fittings promptly can prevent system failures.
Hydraulic fittings are used in a wide range of industries and applications, including construction machinery, agricultural equipment, industrial machinery, aerospace, automotive systems, marine equipment, and more.
