DIN Metric and BSPP (British Standard Parallel Pipe) are the most common thread styles in Europe.  DIN type tube fittings conform to the requirements of ISO 8434-1, DIN 2353, and DIN EN 3850 standards. This ensures the interchangeability with leading brands of fittings.

Why OEMs Are Using More DIN Fittings

With their growing popularity globally, many U.S. OEMs are adopting DIN fittings. 

This, combined with the rise in equipment being imported into the Americas from European manufacturers, is resulting in DIN metric fittings becoming more common in the U.S..

For decades JIC fittings have been the industry standard in the U.S..  However, they are more susceptible to cracked flares from over torqueing. The mated sealing surfaces in DIN metric fittings and O-ring face seal fittings reduce the risk of over torqueing and provide greater reliability because of the elastomeric seal in the mating surface.

DIN stands for "Deutsches Institut für Normung", which means "German institute for Standardization".  DIN 2353 tube fittings are most commonly used in industrial, oil & gas and construction equipment in hydraulic and pneumatic applications. Metric O.D. sizes range from 4mm to 42mm, and the most common industrial applications use carbon steel or stainless steel material.
