Hydraulic Thread Identification Help

One of the toughest parts about working with hydraulic fittings is identifying the thread type and size that you have. There are more than 30 different thread types and some of them look very similar at a glance, it can definitely be tricky to identify your fitting correctly.

We quite often speak to customers on the telephone who aren’t sure which thread they’ve got in front of them and it’s always a struggle to try and help over the phone alone. We hope that this document can help¬†alleviate this problem and become the first port of call when trying to identify an unknown thread, something everyone can use as a quick reference if you’re not very familiar with hydraulic fittings, or if you come across a¬†more uncommon part that you’ve never seen before.
