Many different fitting designs may be attached to the hose assembly. Selection of the proper material for the end fittings must be considered. Fitting materials such as carbon steel, malleable iron, stainless steel, bronze or brass may or may not be the same as the hose assembly material. Correct attachment of the fittings is essential to the integrity of the assembly.

Contact OmegaFlex if the attachment of dissimilar metals is required.
