Everyone need to Know about installation of hyloc Tube Fittings

Reliable industrial fluid power systems are basic requirement considering the safety, efficiency, and profitability. Most important points to include, suitable selection of tube, Hydraulic fittings and most important to have proper installation of Hydraulic tube fittings in the system.

We have found that most of the causes of leakages in any industrial fluid system are due to poor tubing selection, its preparation and improper installation. However blame comes to manufacturers. For these reasons, fluid system professionals must equip themselves with the basic skills required to properly install tube fittings.

Let’s learn how to select and some of the trouble shooting tips.

Additional important Installation Safety Tips:

  • Never bleed system pressure by loosening a fittings coupling nut: Bleeding system pressure refers to the process of releasing trapped pressurized fluid within the system. It is crucial to avoid loosening the coupling nut as a means of bleeding pressure. Doing so can result in the sudden release of pressurized fluid, leading to potential hazards, such as fluid spray or accidental injury. Instead, follow proper procedures for depressurizing the system, ensuring safety and minimizing risks.

  • Never install or tighten fittings when system is pressurized: Before installing or tightening tube fittings, it is vital that the entire system has been completely depressurized. Failing to do so could result in sudden fluid release posing serious safety concerns; always follow appropriate procedures for depressurization before undertaking any installation or tightening tasks.

  • Always ensure tubing rests firmly on the shoulder of the tube fitting body before tightening the nut: Proper positioning of tubing within a tube fitting is essential to creating a secure and leak-free connection. Before tightening the nut, ensure that all tubing has been fully inserted into the fitting and rests firmly against its shoulder, which acts like a raised surface within it. This ensures it has been correctly aligned and seated so as to prevent leaks.
  • Never turn fitting body during assembly—this can damage sealing surfaces: Assembling tube fittings requires being mindful not to rotate or turn the fitting body itself; any such movements could damage sealing surfaces and lead to leakage issues. Instead, hold steady while tightening your nut for proper alignment and to reduce stress on sealing surfaces.

By following the above steps as mentioned in this article, you’ll be ready to make reliable connections.
