  • The Benefits of Stainless Steel in Hose Fittings

    22 Sep 2014

    The use of stainless steel in hose fittings and adapters has many advantages. In fact, before you purchase any type of hose fitting or adaptor for any kind of work or project you’re undertaking, it’s wise to first check the materials used as well as how it’s manufactured. Both will have a huge impact on the quality of the product you’re left with.

     

    So how do these advantages play out practically, and why is stainless steel so important when it comes to hose fittings?

     

    Stainless steel naturally provides excellent resistance to things like corrosion and fire, changes in temperature, mechanical jolts and ultraviolet rays. On top of that, it’s durable, rust free and incredibly easy to maintain. Stainless Steel can be more expensive initially than brass or mild steel, however more often than not the lifespan and functionality of the product will far outweigh the initial investment.

     

    Stainless Steel – Is it durable in extreme temperatures?

     

    Stainless steel can endure extreme temperature changes. Cheaper metals tend to contract or expand with subtle changes to heat - something that can, after a while, begin to cause you major problems such as leaks and malfunction errors. While it’s true that all metals are affected by heat, stainless steel is one of the strongest and most resistant of all, and should certainly be your metal of choice should you be building or working in a warm or cold environment, or somewhere that is prone to significant changes in temperature.

     

    Stainless steel is a tough nut to crack!

     

    If you need a material to work in an area where there is the risk of mechanical shocks and jolts, stainless steel has a reputation for being incredibly strong and able to absorb shocks without stressing or moving too much. So naturally, it’s an ideal choice for many different kinds of hose fittings and adaptors.

     

    Stainless Steel is the metal for the outdoors.

     

    Most metals are prone to rust and degradation which is where stainless steel really comes into its own. Obviously, the cost saving benefits of having a metal that doesn't degrade or require any maintenance is clear, but the added bonus of not having to worry about rust is what makes it a clear winner - particularly surrounding any installations where hygiene might be a factor.

     

    Stainless steel doesn’t harbour germs

     

    Speaking of hygiene, this moves us rather neatly onto our next point - that stainless steel does not harbour germs. Stainless steel is non-porous, which means it resists bacteria and other germs more effectively than a host of other materials. This is the same reason your foods will be safe and untainted if they pass through hygienic hose fittings hence their extreme popularity in kitchens and food and beverage processing factories.

  • Stainless Steel Fittings and Adaptors in a Nutshell

    18 Sep 2014

    If you’re an engineer, a plumber, an auto electrician, or a hose assembler you’ll know  precisely what you need when it comes to your stainless steel fittings. With hallmarks of quality you know it all and you understand which manufacturers best suit your organisation. But if you don’t fit into any of the above job titles? Then you’re probably a bit of a novice. If so hopefully this blog will help clear a few things up.

     

    What are stainless steel fittings?

    Stainless steel fittings are primarily used in fluid based systems - everything from sanitary to water management. Because of this, one of the main things you have to watch out for when selecting the right product, is how prone to cracking or corrosion they are. Tube fittings, by their nature, are going to come under some pretty intense stress from erosion, so getting the right product for the job can save you a bundle in the long run. At Custom Fittings, we test the hydraulic pressure of all of our fittings to make sure they can work under stress so we can be sure of their pressure limitations.

     

    Why is stainless steel the best material for the job?

    All of our fittings are made from stainless steel – simply because it’s the best all rounder. Stainless steel has an extremely high tensile strength, making them reliable and durable with a natural knack for resisting corrosion and preventing leaks - if manufactured to the right standards.

     

    What should I consider when selecting my hose fittings?

    A key one for our customers is consistency. Our customers want to be reassured that their product is consistent across its range, so that if they ever need a replacement or need to upgrade other parts of a system, it’s easily done. Getting this consistency across an entire product range is essential when it comes tube fittings, and of course, it’s something that Custom Fittings specialise in. How do we ensure consistency across our products? It’s all because of CNC or (Computer Numerical Controlled) technology. This technology makes sure  all the products are same across the board, giving our customers complete peace of mind.

     

    What about various other types of stainless steel fittings?

    Aside from hose fittings the main types of fittings you’ll find (all of which we provide here at Custom Fittings) are flanges, pipe couplings, weld fittings. These are commonly used in hydraulics, water management, and widely in the healthcare, kitchen and sanitary industries. Despite there being a wide variety of stainless steel fittings, they do have some consistent elements. For one thing, all of them must have a robust and secure tube grip - one of the key aspects in determining how the fitting performs.

     

    So to be sure, you need to be looking at how they’re manufactured, what they’re manufactured from, and that you have the right part for the job. Here at Customer Fittings we can help with any queries you may have at all and if there’s a product you need which we don’t already have or manufacture, we’ll just make a bespoke one for you!
