Hydraulic fittings are components used in hydraulic systems to connect hoses, pipes, and tubes. In general, hydraulic equipment works under high pressure and is often not a fixed system. Therefore, to function safely and efficiently in their corresponding applications, hydraulic fittings must be durable, versatile, and reliable. Typically, these fittings comply with strict standards that dictate appropriate design, size, and pressure ratings. Adequate strength and corrosion resistance are the vital material characteristics of hydraulic fittings. These are crucial for handling the high pressures of hydraulic systems securely and for resisting rust and corrosion from the vessel’s hydraulic fluid. Other variables involved in the choice of materials include costs and circumstances outside the environment. Material decisions include various plastic or metal types. In most hydraulic systems, metals are used more frequently than plastics because the high pressures require higher resistance materials. Hydraulic fittings can integrate many characteristics that provide the required additional functions for specific applications.  To connect tubes, pipes, hoses, valves, and other ele...
