Industrial hose crimp couplings are an innovative advancement in hose couplings that offer increases in coupling retention and working pressure ratings. The weakest link in most hose assemblies is the means of connecting the coupling to the hose (traditionally achieved with a clamp). A hose application can add increased coupling stress when the weight of the hose is pulling away from the coupling from pressure or vibration. A properly crimped hose typically allows for the entire assembly to be rated at or near the working pressure rating of the hose and coupling, and provides higher coupling shank retention. An added value versus traditional hose clamps is that there is no buckle or bolt to snag or cause injury. These couplings must be installed by a professional hose assembly provider.
We can crimp assemblies up to 10 inch inside diameter (most configurations)
Two common types of crimped industrial hose assembly design:
Sleeve crimped assemblies (top hose photo) are versatile and more economical design for low to medium pressure applications and can incorporate many standard hose couplings not designed specifically with matched ferrules.
Interlocking ferrule assemblies (lower hose photo) utilize crimp ferrules and couplings with raised retaining rings to offer maximum coupling retention and a professional assembly appearance. Ferrule crimped assemblies require a matched coupling and ferrule set from the same manufacturer.
- Offer precisely measured, verifiable and repeatable workmanship
- Achieve higher pressure ratings than band clamps in many applications
- Low-profile sleek professional connections with no sharp edges
- Increased shank retention reduces failures from vibration and pull
