CRIMPNOLOGY NIPPLES
Features & Benefits
• Designed for use with Campbell Interlocking Ferrules.
• Fittings use the same ferrules as Campbell COBRA Parts C and E, ChemJoint Couplings, and Goodyear InstaLock Cam & Groove Couplings to keep inventory low and flexible.
• Interlock groove on fitting (see 4 on photo at right) locks ferrule into place for the ultimate in holding power.
• Interlock groove locks ferrule into place for the ultimate in holding power.
• Graduated serration pattern (see photo at right): sharper near the interlock (3), rounder near the end (2), with smooth end detail (1) to reduce potential failure caused by abrasion grips, seals, and protects hose.
• Shank and ferrule lengths are matched for performance and to avoid potential hose tube or cover damage.
• Crimped assemblies are low profile and eliminate sharp edges from clamp buckles.
Recommended Hose Attachment
Interlocking ferrules
Recommeded Use
• Multi-purpose fluid, chemical, bulk handling.
Special Features
• Crimpnology Nipples provide an excellent fitting solution for medium-pressure applications such as "Frac Hose", mud-pump hose, and other abusive applications.
• Long Shank Crimpnology Nipples provide excellent sealing and retention for high pressure applications (See ratings chart below)

(1) For normal fluids (not hazardous, combustible, flammable, volatile, corrosive, ammonia or LPG). Individual testing should be employed for non-normal fluids to ensure capability. Pressures shown are only valid for the fitting/coupling/attachment and hose combinations indicated and for their threaded mating parts. System working pressure does not include end pull forces. Not for plastic fittings/couplings. All hose systems must be assembled using Campbell procedures and crimp specifications. See elevated temperature derating chart above. Consult factory for reduced temperatures. Never exceed the working pressure of the lowest rated component in the hose system. Maximum working pressure includes the highest pressure the system will experience, such as spikes, surges, and water hammer effects. (For example: If a system consists of a hose rated to 150 PSI and the couplings are rated to 500 PSI, the system should never be used in excess of 150 PSI.)

(2) Hose descriptions:
Air - any smooth bore rubber air or water hose. Includes most general purpose hose
Chemical – any smooth bore rubber chemical hose, including plastic lined (PTFE, UHMW, XLPE). Does not include soft tube hose
PVC – any smooth bore PVC or vinyl hose
Rubber – any smooth bore rubber hose except steam, hot tar & asphalt, chemical, and soft tube hose
Soft – any smooth bore rubber hose with a thick, soft tube. Usually gum rubber and some food-grade hose
Steam – includes hot tar and asphalt

(4) Due to limitations with flanges, consult factory for temperatures other than 70°F.

Refer to Temperature Derating Chart for temperatures above 70°F.
