# Are there metric hydraulic fittings?

## Are there metric hydraulic fittings?

We offer a full selection of Metric Hydraulic Adapters and Fittings, including BSPP, BSPT, Metric, and 30° Seat. Tompkins metric compression fittings are highly resistant to vibration and create strong, reliable, leak-free connections.

How do you tell what size a hydraulic hose is?

In the vast majority of common hydraulic hoses, the I.D. measurement is divided into 1/16” increments known as the “dash size.” For example, a hose measuring 3/4” ID will be shown as a “-12” coming from the numerator of the fraction of 3/4″=12/16”. A 1” ID would be 16/16 or a -16, and so on.

What thread is hydraulic hose?

There are six types of threads commonly used on hydraulic tube fittings – UN/UNF; NPT/NPTF; BSPP (BSP, Parallel); BSPT (BSP, Tapered); Metric Parallel and Metric Tapered.

### What is the outside diameter of 1/4 hydraulic hose?

Hose End Fittings: 1/4″ Male NPT (National Pipe Thread) Inside Hose Diameter: 0.25″ Outside Jacket Diameter: 0.53″ Working Pressure Rating: 5000 PSI.

Are there metric JIC fittings?

​Fitting sizes are designed to correspond with tubing outer diameter (OD) for various types of tube ends. JIC fitting is used to connect tube in metric and inches size with sleeve and nut upon installation.

What size is hydraulic fitting?

SAE 45° Flare (SAE J512)

Inch size Dash size Male Thread O.D. (in)
1⁄8 -2 5⁄16
3⁄16 -3 3⁄8
1⁄4 -4 7⁄16
5⁄16 -5 1⁄2

## How do you measure the size of hydraulic fittings?

How to Measure Your Hydraulic Fitting

1. First you should determine the length of a hydraulic fitting by laying it on a table and then stretching your measuring tape across the top of it.
2. Next, determine the outside diameter of the fitting by using your ID/OD calipers.

Is hydraulic hose measured by ID or OD?

Hoses are measured by inside diameter, unlike tubes which are measured by outside diameter. As a matter of fact, that is how the hoses and tubes are differentiated.

What does JIC mean in hydraulics?

JIC (or Joint Industry Council) fittings, defined by SAE J514, are compression fittings machined with a 37 degree flare seating surface and parallel threads. They are commonly manufactured in nickel alloys, brass, carbon & stainless steel. JIC Fitting hydraulic connections are common in most fluid power systems.

### How do I know what type of hydraulic fittings I have?

There are six types of threads commonly used on hydraulic tube fittings: UN/UNF. NPT/NPTF. BSPP (BSP, Parallel)…Four Steps to Thread Identification

1. Step 1 – Determine if the thread is tapered or parallel.
2. Step 2 – Determine the pitch.
3. Step 3 – Determine the size.
4. Step 4 – Designate the thread.

How do you measure a hydraulic fitting?

Measuring the Outer Diameter of the thread – place the ID/OD caliper around the threads so as to obtain a snug fit. Measuring the Inner Diameter of the thread – insert the caliper into the fitting so you can obtain the correct measurement, and match it to the data charts provided by the manufacturer.

How do I know what size hose fits I need?

For pipe thread, determine the size by comparing it with a nominal size profile, as shown in Figure 1 (a useful tip – pipe sizes up to 2” nominal size can be determined by measuring the actual outside diameter, subtracting ¼” then rounding-off).

## Why choose gates hydraulic hose adapters?

High quality hydraulic valves are instrumental to control pressure, direction, and flow rate of your hydraulic fluids, while Gates hydraulic hose adapters seamlessly combine incompatible hoses, system components, or pipe threads. Keep your fluid power operations performing with world-class hydraulic application equipment, only from Gates.

What is the standard size of a hydraulic hose?

Sizes from 1/4″ to 1.1/2″ are manufactured in YH Hydraulic commonly. The details are showed on technical data table for your reference. We welcome customers to offer us some suggestions or comments that can improve our ability in production and in service.
