At MSP Seals, we are an ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 registered provider of hose assemblies and fittings. Equipped with over 20 years of experience and a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, our team can engineer custom product solutions for some of the most specific and unique customer applications.
Standard hose assemblies and fittings come in a variety of configurations, materials, and sizes, making them an appropriate solution for many applications. However, applications that require exacting performance typically necessitate the use of custom hose assemblies and fittings since they are tailored to the specific requirements and restrictions.
Custom Hose Assembly & Fitting Considerations
The experts at MSP Seals have the knowledge and skills needed to engineer the right hose assembly and fitting solution for virtually any application. Some of the factors the team considers when design and creating a custom solution include:
- Hose type. The right hose can help maximize the life expectancy of the assembly. The key characteristics to keep in mind when choosing a hose for an application include size, temperature, application, material being conveyed, pressure, end requirements, and delivery (STAMPED).
- Hose length. The overall length (OAL) of a hose assembly is a measure of its length from end-to-end. While this factor may not be critical in all applications, it is critical in limited-space applications. The hose cut length is the length of the hose component. It is calculated by subtracting the cut-off factor (the lengths from the bottom of the ferrule/collar to the end of the fitting/internal sealing surface) from the OAL.
- Hose fitting orientation. Orientation is critical for angled fittings; fittings that are installed with the incorrect orientation can significantly reduce assembly performance and life expectancy. The correct orientation is indicated by the number of degrees measured in the clockwise direction with tolerances of ±3° for OAL up to 24 inches and ±5° for OAL above 24 inches.
