Tube stub connections are designed to allow a hose to be connected to an instrumentation style compression fitting. They are a machined tube end with an etched groove in the end for compression ferrule engagement. These fittings can have a compression nut a ferrule pre-swaged onto the tube stub upon request. All Mako braided hose connections are made from durable 316L stainless steel for longevity and reliability. These are also equipped with an extra heavy machined crimp ferrule on the hose side.
These fittings are currently available in 1/4", 3/8", 1/2", 3/4" and 1".
Size adapting fittings are now available in certain size combinations.This means that if a larger fitting is ordered on a smaller hose, like 1/2" connections on a 3/8" hose, it could restrict the flow compared to a hose with 1/2" on a 1/2" hose. These fittings are intended to be used for assembling adapter hoses. Installing two over sized fittings on a smaller hose size should only be considered if a higher pressure rating or tighter bend radius is required.
