Hydraulic Fittings: Witness Air-Way in Your Everyday

Wednesday, July 13, 2022

Today, hydraulic and pneumatic fittings have more machines and equipment running smoothly than you might think. You probably pass by hundreds, if not thousands, of these fittings every day without even realizing it. 

However, they’re essential for properly functioning equipment, which in turn keeps your business fully operational. One small hydraulic fitting breaking or missing means that production (and cash flow) stops immediately. 

Whether it’s a metric fitting, FLARE-O, compression fitting, or anything else, Air-Way Manufacturing has the supply of these essential machine components readily available. We can even work with you on a custom design!

Below, we outline the everyday utilization of our products, the industries we proudly serve, and how we can serve your business today.

Hydraulic Fittings in Your Everyday

From trucks to boats, hydraulic fittings keep systems connected across a variety of industries. According to FactMR, the hydraulic hose market was valued at US $9.8 billion in 2017. The market is forecasted to expand in value at a compound annual rate (CAGR) of 5.23% by 2027.

Since hydraulic systems are constantly used, they undergo tremendous amounts of wear and tear. Therefore, it’s only a matter of time before some sort of maintenance will be necessary, and finding the correct replacement parts can be difficult, timely, and costly. 

It’s important to find and reassemble with a perfect match, without halting production. Otherwise, the system will fail quicker than anticipated. That’s why we have a multitude of resources available, with the purpose of helping you purchase the right hydraulic fitting or adapter.
