Couplings – RYCO Hydraulics
Hose Couplings Part Number Changes

RYCO’s dedication to customer service is paramount. That’s why we are constantly expanding our range of hose couplings to meet all of your application needs. In 2012, RYCO updated and improved the part numbering system, which was seamlessly integrated across the product range. This new part numbering system entailed adding an extra numeric character to 2-digit end style (thread/connector termination) codes, and converting most alpha-numeric end styles to a 3-digit code. The exceptions to this rule are the following: “N” will remain in the end style coding where “N” currently represents NPT or NPSM “S” will replace current “SS” in the end style coding where “SS” currently represents Stainless Steel material “B” will remain in the end style coding where “B” currently represents Brass material. These changes are further highlighted and explained in the examples provided herein on pages 24 and 25 with a cross-reference of Previous to New end style codes listed in the Index by Endstyle Number on pages 26 to 27 in the Couplings section. To maintain high levels of Customer Service, traceability and accurate product identification, ...

Couplings Explained

RYCO Couplings are designed and manufactured by people who know hydraulics. We manufacture hose couplings in many different styles and sizes to match RYCO hose series, with a wide range of thread and connection types.   What is a Coupling? A hose cannot be connected to a system like a hydraulic circuit without attaching a component, called a ‘coupling’, to each of its ends. When couplings are attached to the ends of a hose, it completes what is called a ‘hose assembly’. Couplings have two ends, the ‘hose end’ and the ‘connector end’. For the connector end, there are many different ‘end styles’ to choose from so that hose assemblies can be uniquely configured for the application. Connector ends can be straight or have a 30, 45, 60, 90 or 135-degree configuration. They can also have one of the various connector styles such as JSEAL™, JIC, SAE, or BSPP to name just a few of the many.   Types of Couplings Couplings are specifically matched to the hose type and series and can be one or two-pieces and are either ...

Maximum Performance with RYCO Stainless Steel

RYCO offers a large range of Stainless Steel couplings and adaptors to accommodate various hose applications ensuring maximum performance, enduring reliability and safety. What is Stainless Steel? Stainless steel is a family of alloy steels containing 10.5% or more chromium which has high resistance to chemicals and corrosion with similar strength and durability as standard steel. Features & Benefits: Durability – RYCO Stainless Steel couplings and adaptors are corrosion and chemical resistant to suit a wide variety of applications. Reliability – RYCO design and manufacture with 316 Stainless Steel, also known as the “Marine Grade” with excellent corrosion resistance due to added molybdenum content compared to other chromium-nickel steel alloys. Performance – Recommended for applications that require extra protection from chemical corrosion such as food, medical uses and for tough environments including marine applications. Safety – RYCO Stainless Steel couplings and adaptors have been designed, validated and fabricated to ensure safe, and reliable endurance under even the harshest of conditions. RYCO Quality – RYCO designs, develops, and manufactures our own products. RYCO Stainless Steel Couplings RYCO has a comprehensive Stainless ...
