What You Should Know About ISO Connections & Instrumentation Fittings

ISO connections and instrumentation fittings are two common connections found in fluid power systems. This post is an excerpt from our new Thread ID & Measurement Guide.

ISO Connections

ISO/DIS 6162 4-Bolt Flange* is another common connection found in fluid powersystems. There are two pressure ratings for this connection; Code 61: PN 35/350bar which is considered the standard series Code 62: PN 415 bar which is the highpressure series.

Checking In On Check Valves

What are check valves? A check valve, non-return valve or one-way valve is a valve that normally allows fluid (liquid or gas) to flow through it in only one direction.

Check valves are two-port valves, which means that they have two openings in the body, one for fluid to enter and the other for fluid to leave. There are many different types of check valves used in a wide variety of applications in instrumentation, oil & gas installations, steam and gas turbines, low temperature gas and liquid systems and fine gas.
