Piping Connection Side of Hose Fitting
The piping side of an end fitting comes with
several connecting variations: flange, JIC 37°
flare, O-ring union, and split clamp, to name a
few. Not all varieties are available for each hose.
Therefore, installers must consult the military
specification and manufacturers data to
determine the specific end fittings available.
Hose Connection Side of Hose Fitting
Hose fittings are attached to the hose by
several methods. Each method is determined by
the fitting manufacturer and takes into con-
sideration such things as size, construction, wall
thickness, and pressure rating. Hoses used for
flexible connections use one of the following
methods for attachment of the fitting to the
ONE-PIECE REUSABLE SOCKET. The
socket component of the fitting is fabricated as
a single piece. One-piece reusable sockets are
screwed or rocked onto the hose OD, followed
by insertion of the nipple component.
SEGMENTED, BOLTED SOCKET. The
segmented, bolted socket consists of two or more
segments which are bolted together on the hose
after insertion of the nipple component.
