Although not one of the most common fittings used in fluid power applications, brass fittings are extremely useful in corrosive environments for both hydraulic and pneumatic hose and tubing applications.
Anderson Metals offers a variety of fittings, including 45° flare fittings, pipe fittings, and push-on hose barbs for a wide range of temperatures.
The SAE 45° flare fittings are available in union designs and feature a two-piece construction of the nut and body. They can be used with any copper, aluminum and steel hydraulic tubing that can be flared. Designed for both hydraulic and pneumatic systems, they are rated for low, medium and high pressures and temperatures from –65 to 250° F. Common applications include mobile equipment and air compressor piping, machine tools, and packaging equipment.
One-piece tee pipe fittings can be used with brass, steel and iron pipe in hydraulic, pneumatic and plumbing systems. They are rated for pressures to 1,000 psi and temperatures from –65 to 250°F. They also offer a fair amount of vibration resistance.
Finally, push-on hose barbs can be used with thermoplastic and rubber push-on style hose, particularly in pneumatic and lubrication systems. Hose clamps or ferrules are not required. They are designed to meet the pressures and temperatures of the hose requirements.
