High-pressure fittings play an essential role in the day-to-day operations of the world; from filling tires with an air compressor to pressurizing industrial clean rooms, they are used everywhere. High-pressure fittings are critical components in maintaining the safety of fluid control systems.
It is imperative to use quality high-pressure fittings that require minimal maintenance without constant repair or replacement for industrial applications. Doing so enhances your industrial operation’s overall performance, reliability and success.
With a focus on innovative design and exceptional customer service, Hy-Lok Canada has been your trusted source for top-of-the-line high-pressure fitting and valve solutions for over 40 years. Keep reading to learn about the differences within Hy-Lok’s extensive catalogue of high-pressure fittings.
Threading: ISO and NPT
The two most common pressure fittings in the Fluid & Control System industry are ISO and NPT threads. To the untrained eye, ISO and NPT threads appear interchangeable with the same material, size and dimensions; however, they are used in different high-pressure applications.
ISO threads are found in equipment worldwide and closely resemble the British Standard Pipe Threads, whereas NPT fittings can only be found in North American fluid systems. While they share similar functionality, the variances in the thread’s pitch are the main difference. If the ISO and NPT threads are used interchangeably in a high-pressure application, they will cause an improper seal that is extremely hazardous to the crew and equipment.
