Hydraulink’s range of hose couplings is available in three main series:
Swage series hosetail, which is designed as a combination tail suitable for use with all hose types from multi-spiral wire to fibre-reinforced thermoplastic. Simply select the ferrule type to match the relevant hose.
- Field Attachable (often referred to as reusable), including the R5 field attachable series coupling, which is a specialised type of field attachable, designed for use with Gates C5C, C5D and C5M hoses (SAE 100R5). The hosetail is supplied complete with ferrule to ensure compatibility of hosetail and ferrule.
- Push-on series hosetail (also described as push-lock), designed to be suitable for use with low pressure hose such as SAE 100R6 or equivalent (e.g. Gates LOLA or GTH hoses). Use of hoseclips or hose clamps to secure the hosetail is not recommended and will cause premature damage to the internal tube.
All Hydraulink thread forms and sealing methods are manufactured to the relevant international standards where applicable. Hydraulink’s products are backed in the field by Hydraulink’s extensive hydraulic service network, including 24/7 service from more than 400 service points across Australia, NZ and Oceania.
