OmegaOne manufactures stainless steel hydraulic fittings and adapters in a variety of thread types. We offer two main categories of threads which both perform and seal differently;
A tapered threaded pipe is commonly used in systems that handle liquids, gasses, steam, and hydraulic fluids. OmegaOne fittings and adapters are manufactured primarily for use in hydraulic systems.
Tapered threads are used with:
The most common fitting in the United States and Canada is the National Pipe Taper thread or NPT, also known as OmegaPipe. However, a taper thread is a mechanical seal that forms a dry seal. Because of this, taper threads are designed to work in conjunction with a lubricant to help prevent thread galling.
The National Pipe Taper Fuel(NPTF)standard is designed to provide a better seal than the NPT. The NPTF thread is commonly referred to as a dry seal thread, which is designed to work optimally without the use of lubricants.
BSP and BSPT and essentially the same type of thread type, but the main difference is that BSP is not compatible with NPT while BSPT is. Though we do not stock BSP/BSPT as standard, we do produce specials and have limited stock of parts with BSP/BSPT threads.
At OmegaOne, our goal is to make fittings easy. That is why we are here to help you find the exact fittings and fitting thread you need to best suit your application.
