Vitillo has released a wide range of fluid connectors and conductors suited for low and high-pressure hydraulic applications, including the HyperSpiral no-skive hose fittings for spiral hoses. The range includes spiral and braided hoses with metal and textile reinforcements, standard and interlock crimp fittings, adaptors, customized special fittings and bent/shaped rigid tubing. All fittings and adapters are available with zinc chromium III plating, zinc-nickel plating, and in stainless steel.
Sizes of the HyperSpiral range from 0.38 to 1.25 in. with working pressures to 6,000 psi (420 bar). Advantages include the fitting avoiding premature hose failure causes by improper skiving, preventing steel-wire reinforcement corrosion and speeding up assembly and increasing productivity.
