Hydraulic Fittings thread chart | American Connections

Ports and connectors have wide applications in fluid piping systems. Before you replace or add a hose or a tube to your assembly, you should identify the port or connector required by your fluid piping system. This guide will help you to identify them with ease.

A thread standard defines the form, angle, diameter, and pitch of a thread. ASME B1 .1 and ISO 261 are examples of standards that are commonly used by thread manufacturers.

Some of the organizations that have developed commonly used thread standards include American Society of Manufacturing Engineers, American National Standards Institute, International Organization for Standardization, SAE International, British Association, and Deutsches Institut für Normung.

AMERICAN CONNECTIONS

National Pipe Tapered Fuel (NPTF)

The NPTF is a dryseal thread. The male thread mates with the female thread and a seal is formed when the two are crushed together i.e. threads deformation. Teflon and pipe dope are commonly used when additional sealing is needed. Although this connection is widely used in fluid piping systems, the National Fluid Power Association (NFPA) does not recommend it for hydraulic applications.

NB: Although the NPTF connector and BSPT connector are similar in appearance, the two are not interchangeable.

National Pipe straight mechanical (NPSM)

The male and female threads of the NSPM connection are straight. In addition, the male has a 300 internal chamfer while the female has an inverted 300 seat. A mechanical connection is formed when the two halves are threaded together. The tapered seat forms a leak-resistant joint. NSPM connections find many applications in fluid power systems.

NB: A NPSM female can form a seal with a chamfered NPTF male.

JIC 37° Flare (SAE J514)

This connection finds many applications in hydraulic systems. Both the JIC male and JIC female have a 37º flare seat and straight threads. The male and female flare seats seal when the straight threads are engaged. The connection is held mechanically by the straight threads of the male and female halves. It is important to note that most SAE J514 threads are identical to SAE 45º flare threads but their seating angles are different.
