Hose joints are widely used in the fields of petroleum, chemical industry, metallurgy, construction, etc. The connection method of hose joints is a core topic in the industry. The leakage and falling off of its hose connectors will cause major accidents over time. So these problems cannot be ignored.

Common hose joint connection methods

Threaded connection

Threaded connection is the most common hose joint connection method. It has good sealing performance and tensile strength. Its main features are stable connection and easy disassembly. However, you should note that threaded hose joint is prone to leakage under special environments. Such as high pressure and high temperature.

Ferrule connection

Flange connection is a new type of hose joint connection method. It uses a metal ferrule to fit tightly with the end of the hose joint. Therefore, it has good tensile strength and sealing performance. Its main features are simple connection and not easy to leak. However, the disadvantage of the ferrule connection is that it can withstand low pressure. Thus it is not suitable for high pressure working conditions.

Flange connection

Flange connection is a high-end hose fitting connection method. It has high sealing performance and pressure resistance. Thus it is widely used in large equipment and high-pressure fluid systems. Flange connection is stable, safe and reliable. However, the installation is complex and occupies a large space.

Above are the most common rubber hose fitting connection methods. You can see all of them have their own advantages and disadvantages. Therefore, when you need to connect a hose coupling to the rubber pipe, choose the right methods according to the specific work. Otherwise, there will be problems like leakage, falling, etc. While if you have no idea which one is suitable for you, just consult Hiteck.
