# How Big Is A An Fitting?

## What is an6 fitting?

AN fittings are a flare fitting, using 37° flared tubing to form a metal-metal seal.

In bolts the number refers to the diameter of the bolt whereas in a fitting it refers to the OD of the tube and thereby have different threads.

For example, AN6 bolt has a ​3⁄8-24 thread whereas an AN6 fitting has a ​9⁄16-18 thread..

## How do you measure BSP?

To find the thread size: 1) Measure the O.D (Outer diameter) of the BSP thread. 2) Take the O.D measurement in inches and subtract 1/4 (. 25″). For example, a BSP parallel male thread measures out to O.D 1″.

## What size is a an fitting?

“AN” Thread Sizes The nominal outside diameter of the tubing is expressed in sixteenths of an inch increments and then given an equivalent dash number. For example, an -8 AN fitting translates to an 8/16 inches, or 1/2-inch.

## ARE AN and JIC fittings the same?

JIC fittings are dimensionally identical to AN (Army-Navy) fittings, but are produced to less exacting tolerances and are generally less costly. SAE 45-degree flare fittings are similar in appearance, but are not interchangeable, though dash sizes 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10, 14, and 16 share the same thread size.

## ARE AN fittings 37 degree?

Technically speaking, AN fittings are manufactured to MIL-F-5509, and industrial 37-degree flare fittings are manufactured to meet SAE J514/ISO-8434-2.

## What size is a hose fitting?

In the US, hoses are normally supplied with a 3/4″ GHT fitting on the bib end of the hose so that it can be screwed straight onto the bib. Screw a 3/4 -inch brass or plastic fitting onto the tap.

## How do you measure pipe thread fittings?

To determine the size of a pipe, the outside diameter of each pipe or fitting must be measured and compared to the table for size identification. For example, a 3/4″ NPT pipe thread has an outside diameter of 1.050 inches. Each thread size has a defined number of threads per inch (TPI).

## How are NPT fittings measured?

As a general “rule of thumb” an NPT thread is approximately 1/4″ (0.25”) larger than its “name.” For a 1/4″ NPT fitting the “nominal” OD is 0.533”. NPT fittings are slightly tapered so the “nominal” diameter is the diameter in the middle of the threaded portion, as measured by the top (crest) of the threads.

## What is a threaded fitting?

Threaded joints probably represent the oldest method of joining piping systems. Like Socket Weld fittings, threaded fittings are mainly used for small pipe diameters (Small Bore Piping); generally for piping whose nominal diameter is NPS 2 or smaller.

## How do I know what size hydraulic hose I need?

To find out the hose size, check the layline. If the original printing has worn off, the original hose must be cut and the inside diameter measured. Be sure to measure the overall assembly length and fitting orientation before cutting the hose.
