These include Size, Temperature, Application, Media, and Pressure (STAMP). The acronym STAMP is an easy tool to use for determining the proper fitting and material. Although this article deals primarily with determining what is the right fitting material for an application, all five STAMP parameter considerations are important in making the best fitting material and type determination.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/fittings-amp-couplings/it-s-material-world" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/fittings-amp-couplings/it-s-material-world#comments Fittings & Couplings Wed, 12 Dec 2012 16:07:00 +0000 18091 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com
