Pipe, hose, and tubing are used to move materials such as air, water, gasoline, and chemicals from one place to another. Hoses are flexible, pipe is rigid, and tubing can be either flexible or rigid. Fittings and couplings are used to connect pipe, hose, and tube to tools and equipment or to join sections of pipe, hose, and tube together in a system.
Hose products include hoses and the parts that are used to connect, install, and maintain them. Hoses are used to move materials such as air, water, gasoline, and chemicals from one place to another for tasks such as watering plants, powering pneumatic equipment, venting fumes, vacuuming dust, transferring liquids and bulk materials to storage containers, and pumping water. Hose fittings and couplings are installed on the ends of hoses to allow the hoses to be connected to tools, equipment, accessories, and other hoses. Hose reels keep hoses organized and out of the way when not in use. Hose accessories include nozzles, repair kits, hangers, and other parts that are used with hoses to install and maintain them and improve their functionality.
Hose Fitting and Coupling
Hose fittings and couplings are parts used to create custom hose assemblies for carrying air, water, fluids, and chemicals through a pipe system. They are often used to join hoses that have different thread types or sizes. Garden hose fittings and couplings connect garden hoses to a water source, accessory, or to each other. Fire hose fittings and hydrant adapters join fire hoses to nozzles, hydrants, fire trucks, and other water sources. Steam hose fittings, couplings, and clamps connect steam hoses to compatible equipment in steam systems. Multipurpose hose fittings and couplings connect multipurpose hoses to carry air, water, or chemicals through a pipe system. Hydraulic hose fittings and couplings connect hydraulic hoses to pipe, equipment, and other hoses in hydraulic systems.
Cam and Groove Fittings
Cam and groove fittings connect and disconnect hose or pipe fittings on industrial containers in low-pressure fluid-handling applications.
Fire hose fittings and hydrant adapters are parts that connect fire hoses to hydrants, fire trucks, or building water sources. They are commonly used in fire hose assemblies to convey water in emergency-response and firefighting applications, as well as for maintenance applications in industrial plants and municipal garages. Fire hose and hydrant caps and plugs protect the open ends of fire hydrants and hoses while not in use. Fire hose and hydrant adapters allow firefighters to quickly connect fire hoses to hydrants.
Band clamp options from Grainger can be ideal for jobs that require fit-all connectors. A band clamp is versatile yet permanent, with hundreds of uses. Use a band galvanized or stainless steel clamp to help secure a hose and adapter, insulation to interior pipes, or foam padding to a railing. Band clamps come in a range of adjustable sizes and can fit most interior diameters. Just slide them on and help tighten with a compatible clamping tool.
