What is a hydraulic compression fitting?
Hydraulic and compression fittings are used in piping systems to connect pipes of different diameters together. The most common type is a live joint fitting, which has a threaded connection on each side.
What the usage of compression hydraulic fittings?
Compression hydraulic fittings can connect different sizes of pipes and valves together for those applications that use liquids, gases and water.
what the advantages of compression fittings?
Compression hydraulic fittings are convenient to manipulate because of their wide range of use, and the fact that they do not require welding or other special tools to assist in installation.
How reliable are compression fittings?
Compression fittings are generally considered more reliable than threaded fittings.
Do I need Teflon tape on compression fittings?
No. PTFE tape is not required on new compression fittings.
What is the difference between FIP and compression?
MIP or FIP: Same thread size as NPT. Compression: A unique threaded fitting that does not fit with other thread types.
How much pressure can compression fittings withstand?
Maximum working pressure is 400 psi. nominal working pressure is 200 psi. -65˚ to +250˚F.
Why do compression fittings fail?
Unlike threaded fittings, compression fittings can seal properly but slip out of position due to forces on the pipe.
Can you reuse compression fittings?
They can be safely reused and are suitable for pipes that move halfway out from the fitting.
Is it possible to use compression fittings on hydraulic systems?
Flareless compression fittings enable leak-free connections in hydraulic systems. Since hydraulic systems operate at high pressures, it is absolutely necessary to secure the pipes well.
