SAE BOSS Fitting
O-ring Ports are the preferred port connection for use in hydraulic systems on industrial equipment and commercial products. The adjustable O-ring fittings described in this section provide a variety of options for connections between tube, hose and pipe ends.
- Thread conforms to ISO 263 and ANSI B1.1 Unified
- Port conforms to ISO 11926 and SAE J1926
- These SAE O-ring Boss fittings are commonly called straight thread O-ring fittings.
- Pitch and diameter are measured in inches
- Threads are parallel and requires o-ring for pressure tight connection
- Thread angle is 60°

Non-Adjustable Port End Assembly
- Inspect components to ensure that male and female port threads and sealing surfaces are free of burrs, nicks, and scratches, or any foreign material.
- If o-ring or seal is not pre-installed to fitting male port end, install proper size o-ring or seal, taking care not to damage it.
- Lubricate o-ring with light coating of system fluid or a compatible lubricant to help the o-ring slide past the port entrance corner and avoid damaging it.
