    SERIES HOSE.
  2. RYCO BITELOK T4000 and TG000 SERIES COUPLINGS WITH RYCO NON-SKIVE HOSE.
    USE ONLY MATCHED SIZES OF RYCO M2, M2G, MP1, PL1, PL1D, RQP5, RQP6, TP7, TP7N, TP7T, TP7TN, TP3000, SR, SRF,
    T5 and TPGL SERIES HOSE. (See page 505 for instructions for separating of ends of TP7T, TP7TN, TP8T and TP8TN Series.)

STEP ONE:

004_step_one

Cut hose to length required using a cut-off saw.
Ensure hose is cut squarely.
Clean hose bore

STEP TWO:

004_step_two

Mark the Mark Length onto the hose (Mark Length dimension from  “RYCO Crimp Chart”).
Push hose into the fitting (lubricate the hose bore if necessary)  until the mark on the hose is even with the end of the ferrule.
Note: Push the hose all the way into the fitting.

STEP THREE:

004_step_three

Place assembled end into the jaws of crimp  machine.
Operate machine to crimp ferrule to the predetermined diameter. (Refer to “RYCO Crimp Chart”).

STEP FOUR:

008_step_sixOpen the crimp machine and remove the assembly. Check the crimp  diameter with a caliper or micrometer. Crimp diameter should be measured halfway along ferrule. Measure between the ridges, and make sure that the caliper fingers do not touch  the ridges.
Check that the Mark Length mark is still even with the end of the   ferrule to ensure coupling has not moved during crimping.

Notes:
Extra special care must be exercised in the preparation, assembly and crimping of these fittings due to the very high pressures and end loads encountered.
* For RT7, RT7N, RT7T, RT7TN, RT8, RT8N, RT8T and RT8TN Hose Series it is preferable to lightly lubricate using a PTFE or Silicon-based aerosol spray lubricant. Use lubricant only if necessary; use sparingly if required.
RYCO Crimp Chart detailing Mark or Skive Length and Crimp Diameter is available from RYCO hydraulics.

HOW TO ORDER BITELOK NON-SKIVE HOSE COUPLINGS

The RYCO BITELOK Non-Skive Coupling is a one-piece fitting.
BITELOK Non-Skive Couplings do not require the hose to be skived externally or internally.
As the BITELOK Non-Skive Coupling is a complete coupling, simply order by Part Number.
