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.
