Crimp-style hose assembly

Crimp-Tite crimp-style fitting system makes inherently reliable braided steel hose assemblies. It extends hose life, as no heat is applied to the metal and resists corrosion more than welded assemblies. It incorporates a fitting insert (stem), crimp ferrule (collar), composite rubber seal, and braided metal hose. It is available in 12, 34, 1, 112, and 2 in. nominal diameter sizes. It is rated for maximum working pressure from 560 to 1500 psi and burst pressure from 2240 to 6000 psi.
