Pneumatic connectors, fittings & hoses are components specially engineered to connect tubing and pipes in pressurized pneumatic systems. Unlike hydraulic fittings, they are built with tighter seals and lower pressure requirements. Pneumatic connectors & fittings are generally made from stainless steel, polymer or plastic.
Importance of pneumatic connectors, fitting & hoses
Pneumatic connectors, fittings & hoses are used widely across different industries, especially in robotics used in production lines and in household appliances like vacuums. As such, they are important components in different types of equipment and tools as well, including industrial machinery, workbench equipment, and handheld tools.
How do pneumatic connectors, fitting & hose work?
Pneumatic connectors & fittings can work in different types of configurations, depending on their application, such as:
Threaded-to-tube adaptors and fittings: This type of configuration is designed to ensure a quick fit push-in connection with a parallel threaded connection.
Tube-to-tube adaptors and fittings: This configuration can be connected as an adaptor between two different tube sizes and ensure a quick fit push-in connection.
Threaded adaptors and fittings: This configuration is designed for connecting to a tapered or parallel thread and can be connected differently, like a bulkhead adaptor, threaded bolts, etc.
