Hose is a necessary material for both civil and industrial use. For example, we need water hose and shower hose in our houses. While we also need industrial hose in production. However, as a part of hose assembly, the fittings are also important. But do you know the fittings well? Next let me introduce you.
Types of fitting
Generally, the fittings include male, female, camlock, ferrule and clamp. Each of them has different shape and usage. Besides, they have their own work condition. Thus you have to pay more attention to the install.
What is to consider?
First, clean the impurities such as slag before clean the hose with acid solvents. Because this may cause chemical reaction. While the reaction will damage the hose and affect the service life.
Second, fitting need special protection during work. Because it may cause surface damage during the transport. Thus you’d better seal it well.
Third, you can’t break even a single screw on the fitting. You can protect it with acid resistant plastic or rubber belt. In another hand, you can paint dry oil first. Then soak it in acid solvent to remove the rust.
Fourth, specially focus on the mark on the hose when clean it. Beside, you should protect it regularly.
Last, when install the fittings, the connect section should be accurate. Otherwise the connection will be loose and unstable. Then there will be leakage. Besides, the unload will be difficult after welding. Thus if you worry about such problems, ask a special person to to such work. Then avoid the probable problems.
