ADAPTORS

Adaptors are an integral and very important part to plumbing any system and is usually the point at which most people get it wrong. This is because of the great variety of threads used throughout the automotive and aerospace industry. Another difficulty is that threads from different industries are specified in a different way from the rest. A guide and aid to thread recognition can be found on the 'Helpful information' page.

If you are unfamiliar with threads it would be useful to spend some time reading that page as it will save a lot of heartache and frustration later. If you cannot get to grips with threads, don't despair we are usually able to guide you along and if all else fails or if you don't wish to do it your self, send the bits to us and we will sort it for you.

Adaptors come in a variety of materials, Aluminum, plated steel, and sometimes stainless steel or chrome plated steel

ALL THE LIST ABOVE ARE JIC (UNF THREAD WITH 37 SEAT) ON ALL THREADSJIC TO NPTF ADAPTORS

Please remember that NPTF is a pipe series thread so that the size notation does not refer to the outside diameter of the thread as in other threads

JIC TO NPTF ADAPTORS
Part number suffix applied to NPTF threads are confused by manufacturers using a combination of 'historical numbers and American aerospace numbering systems So unless you are very familiar with the part numbers it is safer to specify the size you require Although you can cross refer with the price list

METRIC ADAPTORS

Although more of the manufacturers are making metric hose ends, Jic female hose ends are by far the most popular and cost effective fittings therefore most people need to equip themselves with metric adaptors, also included are BSP to Metric adaptors which are mainly used with steel fittings

BSP ADAPTORS

Bsp adaptors are usually used with steel fittings as this is the most popular form of thread used in the hydraulics industry, usually used in a parallel form, they are however sometimes used as a taper thread similar to NPTF, care must be taken to measure the pitch of the thread as in some cases there is only 1 TPi difference.

SPECIALISED ADAPTORS

As anyone involved in the industry will know manufacturers have a happy knack of trying to catch you out Below is a list of some of the special; adaptors available. Don't worry if you can't find the right adaptor for your requirement, it is possible that they are made but not listed, and if they are not available and there is not alternative way of proceeding it may be possible to make them.
