Eaton Aeroquip manufactures
crimp- and reusable-style fittings to attach a flexible hose to
the fluid-conveying system.
Generally of two-piece construction, crimp fittings grip the
hose when the outer component or socket is crimped or swaged
using dedicated tooling and equipment. Reusable fittings usually
can be re-attached in the field using common hand tools.
Depending on design, Aeroquip hose styles use crimp or reusable
styles, and some are compatible with both.
