What is the difference between JIC and BSP?

What is the difference between JIC and BSP?

The only difference is Komatsu uses millimeter thread sizes while JIS use a BSP (British Standard Pipe) thread. JIC fitting systems have three components that make a tubing assembly: fitting, flare nut, and sleeve. JIC fittings are commonly used in the Fluid Power industry in a diagnostic and test-point setting.

What is the difference between JIC and NPT?

JIC fittings is absolute different seal, not interchangeable. JIC hydraulic fittings is used in high pressure system, NPT fittings is used in low-pressure system. NPT pipe threads have always been popular, as leaks can be fixed by simply tightening the fitting.

What is JIC pipe fitting?

JIC (or Joint Industry Council) fittings, defined by SAE J514, are compression fittings machined with a 37 degree flare seating surface and parallel threads. They are commonly manufactured in nickel alloys, brass, carbon & stainless steel. JIC Fitting hydraulic connections are common in most fluid power systems.

Is MHT same as ght?

Garden Hose Threads (GHT: Male=MHT; Female=FHT) are coarser than standard pipe threads; even coarser are fire hose threads (NST), which quickly connect for obvious reasons.

What is NPT and ght?

What are GHT and NPT? Garden hose threads (GHT) are screw thread standards set by ANSI-ASME B1. 20.7 for couplings, fittings, nozzles, and valves for hoses. On the other hand, National pipe taper threads (NPT) are screw thread standards set by ANSI-ASME B1. 20.1 for threaded pipes and fittings.

What does a high pressure hose do?

In chemistry and medicine, hoses (usually called tubes) are used to move liquid chemicals or gases around. A fuel hose carries fuel. In the oil industry high pressure hoses are used to move liquids under high pressures. Typical uses are for kill and choke lines, cement lines and Kelly hose.

What is a high pressure hose?

The high pressure hose can be used as a stand-alone item for specific projects and purposes, or as a part of a larger piece of equipment. Generally speaking, the hose is made from sturdier materials than lower pressure hoses, thus allowing it to support water or air pressure at higher levels.

How do you repair a power washer hose?

Steps to Repair Your Power Washer Hose Switch off the power of the pressure washer. If you’re using an electric pressure washer, unplug it. Press the hose trigger to get rid of any water inside of the hose. Find the leak and dry the area around the leak. Make a square cut on each side of the leak. Measure the diameter of the hose.
