Brass Hose Tails

Brass hose tail fittings are used to connect hoses to threaded outlets. They are typically made of brass because it is a strong, durable, and corrosion-resistant material. Available in a variety of sizes and thread types to fit a wide range of applications. Safe pressures and temperatures depend on the tubes being used.

There are two main types of brass hose tails:
  • Male hose tails: These have male threads on one end and a barbed tail on the other end. The barbed tail is inserted into the hose and then clamped with a hose clamp.
  • Female hose tails: These have female threads on one end and a swivel nut on the other end. The hose is inserted into the swivel nut and then tightened
 
Brass hose tails are suitable for compressed air, water, oils and fluids in general for the hydraulic and pneumatic fields. Commonly used in a variety of applications:
  • Irrigation: to connect hoses to sprinklers, faucets, and other irrigation equipment.
  • Pneumatic systems: to connect hoses to air compressors, valves, and other pneumatic components.
  • Hydraulic systems: to connect hoses to pumps, valves, and other hydraulic components.
  • Beverage dispensing: to connect hoses to kegs, soda fountains, and other beverage dispensing equipment

When choosing a brass hose tail, it is important to consider the size, thread type, and pressure rating of the fitting. The size of the hose tail should be compatible with the size of the hose and the thread type should match the thread type of the outlet. The pressure rating of the hose tail should be greater than the maximum pressure that will be applied to the hose.
