JIC connectors ova hydraulic connectors, which are used in high-pressure hydraulic applications as well as in, for example, the automotive industry, cooling and air conditioning. They can also be used in fuel delivery applications to connect control valves to hydraulic hoses. JIC connectors are also used in the aviation industry, for example in the fluid systems of machines. The letter combination JIC consists of the words Joint Industry Council.
The JIC connector consists entirely of a sleeve, a nut and a 37-degree widening body. These fittings differ from many other fittings in that they have a parallel thread and work by sealing metal to metal rather than using something like an O-ring to create a seal.
The practicality of JIC connectors as hydraulic connectors is indicated by the fact that they can be connected to almost any hydraulic system. The advantages of JIC connectors are also good availability and a wide selection of different sizes. They are also easy to install, remove, reconnect and service without any loss of performance. The connectors also have excellent performance in extremely hot and cold temperatures.
The temperature has little effect on the metal-to-metal sealing, unlike what would happen if it were, for example, sealing contained in an O-ring, in which case the material of the ring would have a more negative effect on the resistance to different temperatures.
Tightening the connectors too tightly may cause cracking, leakage or other damage. If you have problems finding the right JIC connector, our hose masters will help you quickly in the chat and of these contact details through.
