This section provides an overview for hydraulic hose fittings as well as their applications and principles. Also, please take a look at the list of 10 hydraulic hose fitting manufacturers and their company rankings.
A hydraulic hose fitting is one of the hoses for high-pressure applications and plays an important role as a component of the hydraulic circuit to transmit pressure from the pump to the actuator via hydraulic oil. This component is used to connect that hose to the pump and the actuator. Since hydraulic pressure is applied to the hose, it is mainly made of metal. There are three types of hydraulic hose fitting that connect the hose body to the fittings: the caulking type, the screw-in type, and the insertion type.
Hydraulic hose fittings are used when machinery is operated by hydraulic pressure. Hydraulic hose fittings are used to connect hydraulic hoses to hydraulic equipment to move large objects, such as excavators and other construction equipment and machine tools. Among automobile parts, brakes are also hydraulic devices because they are operated by hydraulic pressure. Because they apply force to large objects, they are designed to be durable and strong, and are also used in aircraft and other transportation equipment.
Since most hydraulic hoses are made overseas, hydraulic hose fittings are designed according to the hose standards. Because hoses range in inner and outer diameters from small to large, the pressure applied to the hydraulic hose fittings is also higher for larger diameter hydraulic hoses, which are designed to withstand higher pressures. Because of the very high pressure, there is a possibility that the hydraulic hose may come loose from the adapter. Because hydraulic pressure is so much higher than water pressure, the hydraulic hose fittings are generally connected to a nipple, which replaces the faucet, and a socket, which replaces the wire wrap, rather than being banded or wired.
The hydraulic hose fittings can be easily unscrewed or closed for ease of removal. Features of the hydraulic hose fittings include the fact that it does not need to be secured in place with tape, liquid seals, or other means, so there is no risk of friction or other damage to the adapter or hose that could result in hydraulic oil leakage.
