DOT Tubing and Fittings for Brake System Connections

DOT Tubing and Fittings

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.

Choosing the Right Hydraulic Fitting

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.

Copper Versus Steel Pipe Fittings

Plumbing pipe fittings are usually created from various metals and materials. Plastic is also used in many plumbing situations. Two frequently used metals to produce pipe fittings are steel and copper. Both of these materials have been used for several centuries in piping and plumbing installations. You may be wondering if one is more superior than the other, however both of them have their pros and cons associated. In this article we are going to go over which is better to suit your piping needs.
