Crimp Couplings

Please Select A Crimp Coupling Series

                   

HORT 5000 Series standard range of crimp fittings have a huge advantage over most competitive lines. This single range of couplings is used not only for wire braid and textile hoses, but for SAE100R12 spiral hose applications as well. This single feature reduces inventory investment, carrying costs, and space requirements compared to other two-piece and one-piece crimp systems. Wherever possible, elbows and flanges are machined from bar stock and then bent and heat treated for maximum strength. Fittings made in this way are stronger than conventional brazed fittings assembled from parts. Always consult an up-to-date crimp chart to determine the correct ferrule and crimp specifications for your hose assembly.

HORT 8600 Series Interlock fittings are so-named because the wire reinforcement of the hose is mechanically locked between the ferrule and the insert. This is accomplished by skiving the cover and the end section of the tube, so that during the crimping process, the bare wire reinforcement is locked over a specially designed shoulder on the fitting. Interlock fittings are required for very high pressures and tough impulse applications. Interlock flange fittings are machined from bar stock and then bent and heat treated. Fittings made in this way are stronger than conventional brazed fittings assembled from component parts. Special care must be taken when assembling these critical hoses. Always consult an up-to-date crimp chart to determine the correct ferrule, skive and crimp specifications for your hose assembly.

HORT 9600 Series This interlock fitting comes complete with a ferrule and is used in high pressure applications with 5/8" hose.
The recommended hose is our 115HM-10 and it has a pressure rating of 6000 PSI. Also like the 8600 series it needs to be skived externally and internally. Typically 115HM-10 is found on mini excavators and skid steers. Special care must be taken when assembling these critical hoses. Always consult an up-to-date crimp chart to determine the correct ferrule, skive and crimp specifications for your hose assembly.
 

Thread Identification

Throughout the world, a somewhat confusing array of thread styles are now being used. Where most local distributors used to see only domestic designs, they are now faced with supplying replacement hoses and fittings of a multitude of styles, dimensions, and sealing methods. To be more easily understood these can be broken down into the following groups.

Dash Numbers

Most fluid piping system sizes are measured by dash numbers. These are universally used abbreviations for the size of component expressed as the numerator of the fraction with the denominator always being 16. For example, a -04 port is 4/16 or 1/4 inch. Dash numbers are usually nominal (in name only) and are abbreviations that make ordering of components easier. There are many coupling systems used for hydraulic connections.
