Glossary of Hydraulic Fittings

This glossary page provides a brief overview of common terms related to hydraulic fittings, a type of hydraulic component used to connect hydraulic hoses, tubes, and other components in a hydraulic system.

Hydraulic Fitting

A hydraulic fitting is a device that connects hydraulic hoses, tubes, and other components in a hydraulic system. It can be a threaded or non-threaded connection and is designed to withstand high pressure and prevent fluid leaks.

JIC Fitting

A JIC fitting, or Joint Industry Council fitting, is a common type of hydraulic fitting that uses a 37-degree flare seat to create a seal. It is widely used in hydraulic systems for its reliability and ease of assembly.

NPT Fitting

An NPT fitting, or National Pipe Thread fitting, is a type of hydraulic fitting that uses a tapered thread to create a seal. It is commonly used in low-pressure hydraulic systems and is not recommended for high-pressure applications.

BSP Fitting

A BSP fitting, or British Standard Pipe fitting, is a type of hydraulic fitting that uses a parallel thread to create a seal. It is widely used in hydraulic systems in Europe and Asia.

Industrial Hose Fittings

Industrial hose fittings are used to connect hoses to other components in industrial applications. Learn more about industrial hose fittings at Industrial Hose Fittings page.
