More About Straight Thread SAE O-Ring Fittings

An O-ring fitting is a device used to join two pieces of tubing together. It is inserted between the tubes and compressed using an O-ring tool, which creates a watertight seal. O-ring fittings are often used in plumbing and automotive applications.

O-ring fittings are made of a variety of materials, including brass, copper, aluminum, steel, and plastic. The most common type of O-ring is the elastomeric O-ring, which is made of rubber. Other materials used for O-rings include PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene), Viton (fluorocarbon), and EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer).

When selecting an O-ring fitting, it is important to consider the compatibility of the materials being joined. For example, brass and copper tubing should not be joined with an aluminum O-ring fitting, as this could result in corrosion. It is also important to select an O-ring that is compatible with the fluids being transported, as some materials are not compatible with certain chemicals.

What Are ORB Hydraulic Fittings?

ORB fittings (O-ring boss) are a type of hydraulic fitting that is used to connect two pieces of tubing. They are often used in high-pressure applications, as they are able to withstand greater pressures than other types of fittings. ORB fittings are also relatively easy to use and can be installed without the need for any special tools.

There are two main types of ORB fittings: those with a male thread and those with a female thread.

  • Male-threaded ORB fittings have a tapered exterior surface that mates with the tapered interior surface of a female-threaded fitting. This type of connection is often used in applications where high pressure is required, as it can create a seal that is resistant to leaks.

  • Female-threaded ORB fittings have a smooth exterior surface that is designed to mate with the smooth interior surface of a male-threaded fitting. This type of connection is often used in applications where low pressure is required, as it can provide a more secure connection than a male-threaded fitting.

What Is the Difference Between the Female and Male O-Ring Boss Fittings?

The female O-ring fitting has a hole in the middle, while the male O-ring fitting does not. The male fitting is also slightly thicker than the female one. These slight differences account for the fact that the male O-ring boss fitting is less likely to leak than the female one. In addition, the male O-ring boss fitting is more difficult to install than the female one.
