Hydraulic adapters are parts that join varying thread forms or sizes together. Does this mean that hydraulic adapters are the same as hydraulic fittings?
No. While some hydraulic adapters may serve the dual purpose of fitting and adapting different thread forms, “fittings” and “adaptors” are two different components.
The key distinction is that fittings work to connect hoses and parts, regardless of if they are the same thread size or not, while the purpose of adapters is to adapt competing components.
For hydraulic adapters, this can look like adapting different standards (e.g. Metric, SAE, and NPT), joining or splitting plumping, joining different thread sizes, and occasionally attaching unequal size components.
Things to Consider When Buying a Hydraulic Adapter
Hydraulic adapters must be able to withstand extreme environmental conditions. Depending on the hydraulic system, your adapters may be exposed to harsh weather, high internal pressures, and corrosive substances.
This means you need to carefully select the ideal hydraulic adapter for your unique application and work environment. If you’re wondering how to find the right adapter, here are some things to consider:
- Material. We offer a variety of materials, including brass, stainless steel, and carbon steel adapters. When ordering your parts, consider your project specifications. What type of adapter material do they call for?
- Application. What kind of system is this adapter going to be used in? Certain applications require protective adaptor plating, others require specialized adaptors that are resistant to corrosion.
- Threads & Standards. Before shopping for hydraulic adapters, make sure you know exactly what threads or standards you’ll be adapting.
If you’re still unsure which adaptor is ideal for your application, contact our office and speak with one of our experienced adaptor technicians. We’re happy to help you find the optimal hydraulic adaptor for your system.
