Aerocom offers engineered hose couplings consisting of a two-part crimp system, hose inserts and crimp collars, that can be used with a variety of hose crimping equipment. These Aerocom designed custom hose fittings can be used on a multitude of SAE, DIN-EN and ISO standard hoses and can also be crimped on a wide range of hydraulic, pneumatic, and industrial hoses. Standard fitting terminations include NPT, JIC, SAE, ORB, ORFS, BSPP and metric threads, available in straight, 45 and 90º elbow fittings. Additional coupler styles such as Code 61/ Code 62 flanges, tube ends, and other custom hose fittings are also available.
We use high quality SS316L in the production and inventory of our hydraulic hose fittings. Our pressure connections are available in custom made-to-order materials such as hastelloy, inconel, and other exotic materials. We also fabricate hose assemblies, to your specifications, using any of these stainless steel couplings. Our experts are happy to help you find the right combination of hose and fittings for your project.
Stainless steel is inert to practically all commercial chemicals, acids, alcohols, coolants, elastomers, petroleum compounds, solvents vinyl’s, synthetic lubricants and hydraulic fluids. It is also impervious to atmospheric conditions. It will therefore not rust or deteriorate over time even in challenging environments and most importantly will not break down and contaminate the application material, fluid or gas.
Stainless steel 316 has been approved by the FDA and other governmental organizations for use in food handling and pharmaceutical applications. Stainless steel 316 is more resistant than 304 to salt (which is found in most foods). It is easy to clean and sterilize which makes it the perfect material for these applications.
Stainless Steel 316L is the standard material for our adapters and hose couplings. We can also provide our flexible metal hose assemblies with SS316 braid and hose. We have selected this material because of its combined chemical and mechanical properties that make it the best material for your specialized applications.
Our 250 series are two-piece (insert & ferrule) non-skive crimp couplings system. These are designed for 1 and 2 wire hose of SAE, DIN-EN and ISO standards from 1/4″– 2″.
Our heavy-duty 450 series are two-piece (insert & ferrule) SS316 crimp couplings designed for 4 wire multi-spiral style hoses. It is a convenient non-skive hose ferrule design.
Our 150 series are easy-to-use push-lock hose couplings for low-pressure applications, sizes from 1/4″ – 1″. Installation is simple and does not require ferrules or clamps when used with “Push-Lock” type hose.
Aerocom’s butt weld 710 series, weld-on couplings, come prepped and ready to weld onto ¼” to 2” flexible metal hose. The most commonly used stainless steel 316L fitting terminations in inventory include female JIC and male NPT.
