Skive Crimping Ferrules

Skive hose crimping ferrules are designed for use with skived hydraulic hoses. Skiving involves removing a portion of the outer cover and sometimes the inner tube of the hydraulic hose before attaching the fitting and crimping the assembly. Skive ferrules provide enhanced reinforcement and strength to the hose assembly.



  • Skive Design:
    • Skive ferrules are specifically designed for hoses that undergo the skiving process. Skiving exposes the reinforcement layer of the hose, allowing the ferrule to directly contact and grip onto the reinforcement during the crimping process.
  • Enhanced Reinforcement:
    • The skiving process enhances the crimped connection by allowing the ferrule to grip directly onto the hose’s reinforcement layers. This results in a stronger and more secure connection, particularly important for high-pressure hydraulic applications.
  • Pressure Rating:
    • Skive hose crimping ferrules are suitable for use in high-pressure hydraulic systems. The pressure rating of the ferrule should be compatible with the maximum operating pressure of the hydraulic system.
  • Materials:
    • Skive hose crimping ferrules are typically made from materials with high tensile strength, such as steel or stainless steel. The choice of material depends on the application requirements and environmental conditions.
  • Sizes:
    • Skive hose crimping ferrules come in various sizes to match different hose dimensions. It’s crucial to select the correct ferrule size that corresponds to the hose size and the fitting being used.
  • Application:
    • Skive hose crimping ferrules are commonly used in heavy-duty applications where robust hose connections are required. These applications often involve high-pressure hydraulic systems found in industries such as construction, mining, and manufacturing.
  • Installation Process:
    • The installation of skive hose crimping ferrules involves the skiving process, where a portion of the hose’s outer cover is removed, exposing the reinforcement layers. The ferrule is then crimped onto the hose using a hydraulic crimping machine, creating a secure and durable connection.
  • Compatibility:
    • It’s essential to ensure that the skive hose crimping ferrule is compatible with the specific type and model of hydraulic hose being used. Manufacturers often provide guidelines and recommendations for compatible ferrules for their hoses.
  • Certifications and Standards:
    • Depending on the industry and application, skive hose crimping ferrules may need to comply with specific standards and certifications to ensure their safety and performance. Adherence to industry standards, such as those set by SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers), is important.
  • Proper Crimping Procedure:
    • Following the manufacturer’s recommended crimping procedures is critical to achieving a reliable and leak-free connection. Proper crimping ensures that the ferrule securely grips the hose’s skived reinforcement layers.
