Do they make metric hydraulic fittings?
We offer a full selection of Metric Hydraulic Adapters and Fittings, including BSPP, BSPT, Metric, and 30° Seat. Tompkins metric compression fittings are highly resistant to vibration and create strong, reliable, leak-free connections.
What is a banjo style fitting?
A banjo fitting is a hydraulic fitting consisting of a perforated hollow bolt, or internally relieved bolt, and a spherical union for fluid transfer. It is typically used to connect a fluid line to a rigid, internally threaded hydraulic component.
What size is a banjo bolt?
This 3/8-24 single (. 98 shank) banjo bolt fits most standard 3AN and 4AN banjo fittings and banjo adapters measuring approximately 1/2″ thick.
How are hydraulic metric fittings measured?
With a calliper, measure the thread diameter. Using a thread gauge, determine the number of threads per inch. If thread gauge is not available, measure pitch from crest to crest of adjacent threads, or count the number of threads in 1/4″ and multiply by four for threads per inch.
What is DIN metric fittings?
A metric DIN fitting is a compression-style fitting with a flareless bite type construction used to connect Metric tubing to fitting thread connections. They’re composed of a body, ferrule, and nut.
How does a hydraulic banjo fitting work?
Banjo bolts are also known as internally relieved because of their hollow interior. This open interior allows fluid to flow inside and exit through a small hole at the side. The bolt then locks into a system to control fluid performance and pressure.
What is a caliper banjo bolt?
Sometimes called a flex line bolt or a brake hose bolt these are used to attach your brake line to the caliper. Includes replacement copper washers for a perfect fit.
How do I know if my hydraulic fittings are metric?
BSPT (BSP, Tapered) Metric Parallel. Metric Tapered….Four Steps to Thread Identification
- Step 1 – Determine if the thread is tapered or parallel. NPT/NPTF and BSPT are tapered threads while UN/UNF and BSPP are parallel.
- Step 2 – Determine the pitch.
- Step 3 – Determine the size.
- Step 4 – Designate the thread.
What does DIN stand for hydraulic fittings?
Deutsches Institut für Normung
DIN stands for “Deutsches Institut für Normung”, which means “German institute for Standardization”. DIN 2353 tube fittings are most commonly used in industrial, oil & gas and construction equipment in hydraulic and pneumatic applications.
What thread are banjo fittings?
Banjo pipe fittings is designed with BSPP thread of 60 degree cone connector, JIC 37 degree flare connector and ORFS connector.
