Orientation of Fittings
Proper positioning of elbow end fittings on a hose is governed by the offset angle, or the amount of angular offset between connecting parts in the installation.
If this angle of the Hose Orientation is not correct in the construction of a hose assembly the performance and life of the assembly will be greatly reduced.
How to Measure Hose Orientation
Hose Orientation is determined by the number of degrees measured in a clockwise direction.
To measure the orientation angle look along the hose with the furthest fitting (A) away from the viewer and the nearest fitting (B) closest to the viewer.
Fitting (A) must be set at 0 Degrees.
If no angle is given elbows are positioned at 0 Degrees.
