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 installing the coupling onto the hose (typically a clamp). A hose application can add increased coupling stress when the weight of the hose is pulling away from the coupling from pull 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 end 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.
Sleeve crimped assemblies (top hose photo) are an economical attachment method 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) are matched to specially designed hose couplings with raised retaining rings to offer maximum coupling retention and a professional finished assembly appearance. Ferrule crimped assemblies require a matched coupling and ferrule set from the same manufacturer.
- Offers precisely measured, verifiable and repeatable workmanship
- Achieves higher working pressures than band clamps in many applications
- Low-profile sleek professional connections with no sharp edges
- Increases shank retention (even more so with interlocking ferrule)
