Industrial hydraulic pipe fittings are used to connect pipes and tubes inside a hydraulic system. In a hydraulic system, equipment is usually under extreme pressure and if usually not a fixed system. Furthermore, any type of industrial hydraulic pipe fittings needs to be strong and durable to withstand the everyday pressure it will endure. Within a hydraulic system, there are a variety of components the fittings may need to adhere to such as hydraulic tubes, hydraulic pipes, and hydraulic hoses.
To order the proper fitting you need to know what exactly you need the fitting for. For instance, you made need a fitting for a hydraulic tube. A hydraulic tube is a seamless pipe built specially for a hydraulic system. Also, these tubes have a standard size with standard diameters. The hydraulic tube is usually connected with a flange, welding nipples, cut-rings or flare connections.
A hydraulic pipe, on the other hand, is usually a larger diameter tube. The pipes in a hydraulic system, are usually used for the more low-pressure type tasks. These pipes are mostly just connected by welds. Hydraulic hoses are used when more flexibility is needed. Also, the hoses usually have steel fittings on each end.
