    Default Re-Usable Hydraulic Hose Fitting Tutorial

    I have two upcoming projects that will require a lot of custom length hoses, so I though it would be a good time to give these a fair trial. I have always had hoses made locally at a fair price and in a timely manner, but I was always curious about these.

    All parts (hoses and Fittings) where purchased from Discount Hydraulic Hose. I only needed the 1/4" hose and fittings for this project, but all the sizes are assemble the same way.

    This is 30' of 1/4" SAE 100R2AT 2-Wire 5000psi hydraulic hose


    Here are two types of fittings, 1/4" NPT on the left, and a -6 JIC on the right.


    Better view. 1/4" NPT on the left and -6 JIC on the right.



    Here they are with the inner stems removed from the outside collar.


    A die grinder with a cutoff wheel makes easy work of cutting the hose cleanly.


    Here is the cut hose, a straight clean cut is important.


    The outside collar is threaded onto the hose. These are left-hand threads.


    Turn it till the inside bottoms out on the hose.


    Now, mark the hose/collar, and back off the collar 1/2 turn or so to create a gap inside the fitting for the hose to expand into. This is a VERY IMPORTANT step. Failure to do this will cause the stem to break (Don't ask how I know!)


    Hold the collar in a vise, lube the stem and inside the hose with some hydraulic oil and start turning the stem in. This was the hardest part-pushing and turning till the threads engaged. If it starts to get real tight, remove the stem, re-lube and try again.


    Here is the completed fitting. The stem should NOT be tightened to the collar-but rather a small gap left.


    After assembling the hose, be sure to flush it with a solvent (like mineral spirits) and compressed air to clean it out. You don't want the crap from cutting the hose in your hydraulic system.

    So, that is it. I hope this will help someone in the future...

    Great tutorial I appreciate the thread. I have wondered about how well these work. Have you used them before? I thought they would be a better option overall more economical overall and the ability to use and all. I thought maybe they may have a problem with leaking.

    Kenny,

    Do you think this is a one time use of the screw on fittings, or can you screw the fitting back into the same hose. Would you have to use a fresh piece of hose every time you made up one of these units?

    I have used these fittings before to, on much larger hoses. They work really well never had seen one fail. And yes they are re-usable.

    This will be my first time using them, but a few others here have and reported great results. There has just never been a dedicated post on how to install them so I thought I would do it.

    With how tight they go together, I can't imagine them leaking.

    The fitting itself is definitely reusable...I would guess they would want it screwed into fresh hose each time rather than where one was already but not 100% sure, there is very little info available about these.

    I don't know, maybe they kinda grew on me. I have seen these on very old hoses so they definately work. If I didn't own a $5,000 hose crimper and over $100,000 in stock, I would use them too.

    Manufacturers now call them "field attachable" for liability reasons but they are probably reusable until you wear them out. I can check my Weatherhead catalog, but I wouldn't use them on the same piece of hose twice. Maybe you can, I don't know.

    Just a note for everyone else, they make different reusables for different hose types. (The SAE 100R #) Please, do not mix them up.

    Not trying to be a smart guy here, just want it to be right when some noobie searches. Once the fitting has been removed, the hose should have the end cut off before a fitting is installed again.

    I completely re-plumbed my Case 310 dozer with these fittings. Trust me, the larger fittings are not cheap.
