How to Prevent Rusted Hose Adapters
- Jan 24, 2018 -
Have you ever tried to disassemble a hose from a piece of equipment, only to find that the rusted adapter won’t allow you break the connection? Then you know about rust and the problems that can come with it! And it isn’t just connection problems...you can have system contamination, leaks, migrating rust to other components, maintenance issues, and it just looks terrible. Who wants rust on that beautiful piece of hydraulic equipment?
Now our stainless steel fitting can't be rusted, that can protect your equipment even in many severe applications like marine, mining and mobile environments. The SAE requirement is only 72 hours, so this is a huge improvement. And this new plating offers protection at no additional cost. Nothing else is changing - the adapters have the same torque values, coefficient of friction, pressure ratings, color and other specifications.
