Hydraulic fittings are parts that are used to connect tubes, pipes, and hoses in hydraulic systems. Since most hydraulic equipment runs at high pressures, the hydraulic fittings need to be versatile, strong and reliable. The main types of hydraulic fittings include compression fittings
that use compressive force to connect your equipment to the fittings. Some of the common compression fittings include standard compression fittings that use rings and metal gaskets.Another common type of hydraulic fitting is the crimp fitting that entails placing hoses over tubular end and crimping with a crimp socket or ring. Note that you need to have a crimping tool to fix these fittings.Your hydraulic system will also require flange fittings
such as ribs, edges, and collars. These fittings have flush surfaces that attach perpendicular to the hydraulic tube or pipe. The fittings are joined and sealed using bolts
, or threading. In some cases, they might require welding. Other types of fittings include end fittings, threaded fittings, and push-to-connect fittings.
