We carry DOT Tubing developed for brake system connections that maintain a basically fixed relationship between couplings during vehicle operation. Our tubing is made from nylon and is available in more than ten colors for quick identification of lines. Our Air Brake tubing is produced in a Type A (Single-wall extruded Nylon) and a Type B (Nylon core, Fiber reinforcement, Nylon jacket) tubing. Both Type A and Type B meet specifications SA J844 and DOT FMVSS 49CFR 571.106. In addition, these products are 100 percent pressure tested and operate up to 200°F.

By definition, seamless means “perfectly consistent,” but many people get confused by terms such as “seam-free” and “welded-and-drawn” when it comes to selecting tube. Seamless tubing, welded tubing and seam-free tubing all appear to be consistently free of seams, but a closer look reveals significant differences. Bryan Hose & Gasket will discuss the differences between these types of tubing.

Pneumatic fittings are used to connect sections of pipe, tube and hose in pressurized gas systems. Compared to hydraulic fittings, pneumatic fittings are generally characterized by tighter seals and lower pressure requirements. They are often utilized in pneumatic logic control systems and instrumentation.

Hydraulic fittings can connect a variety of materials, including tubes, pipes or hoses to components such as pumps, valves or cylinders. Combined these components create a leak free system that hydraulic fluid can be transmitted safely. There’s a multitude of fitting configurations and variations to choose from, so designers have the ability to change the direction of flow, split flows and alter the elevation of lines.

Steel is one of the most crucial construction metals in the world. This may be common knowledge, but many do not understand the difference between carbon steel and other types of steel. Like any other specific type of steel, the carbon version of this metal not only contains specific properties unique to itself, but also boasts both unique advantages when compared to other types of steel.

Stainless steel covers a wide range of alloys with different properties. One property all stainless steels have in common is that they all contain at least 12 percent chromium. They can be divided into three main groups: Austenitic stainless steel, Ferritic stainless steel and Martensitic stainless steel.
