### What is Dash size in hose?

Simply put, a dash size refers to an I.D. of a hydraulic hose or fitting in 1/16″ increments. For example, -6 hose would indicate a hose with I.D. of 6/16″ – or 3/8″. Dash numbers, the industry standard, are typically used to describe hose and coupling size.

#### Are hoses measured by ID or OD?

Hoses are measured by inside diameter, unlike tubes which are measured by outside diameter. As a matter of fact, that is how the hoses and tubes are differentiated.

Simply put, a dash size refers to a diameter of a hose, tube or fitting in 1/16″ increments. Each dash size corresponds to a progressively larger diameter, measured in sixteenths of an inch. “-1” is 1/16, “-2” is 2/16, and so on. In this case, -6 hose would indicate a hose with an inside diameter of 6/16”, or 3/8″.

How do you measure a hose ID?

Measure the distance across the opening in the paper tube with a ruler. This measurement equals the diameter of the inside of your garden hose.

## How do you know what size an fitting I have?

You can always identify AN fittings based on the male thread size (outside diameter). These sizes are constant regardless of brand, hose type, or fitting configuration. If your fitting has a convex 37 degree flare at the end, the threads will tell you the AN size (and vice-versa).

### What is SAE 10 thread?

SAE 45° Flare (SAE J512)

Inch size Dash size Male Thread O.D. (in)
5⁄8 -10 0.88

7⁄8 -14 1.25
1 -16 1.38

#### Is SAE thread the same as UNF?

The Unified Thread Standard uses the term UNC (Unified Coarse) to describe a fastener that previously would have been designated USS and the Unified Thread Standard uses the term UNF (Unified Fine) to describe a fastener that would have previously been designated SAE.

What size is 10 an fitting?

What does dash size mean on a hose?

For example, nylon tubing is very flexible, and flexible metal hoses are (relatively) very rigid. So remember: dash size is the size of hose, tube or fittings expressed in sixteenths of an inch. Hoses are measured by inside diameter, and tubes are measured in outside diameter. That’s all there is to it!

## What does-10 mean on a hose?

In another example, a -10 tube would indicate a tube with an outside diameter of 10/16″, or 5/8″. Fittings are a little different and slightly more complex. In the part number 10343-8-6, for example, -8 is the size of the fitting end connection, and -6 is the hose size.

### What does-8 mean on hose part numbers?

In the part number 10343-8-6, for example, -8 is the size of the fitting end connection, and -6 is the hose size. Did you notice that for hose part numbers, we talked about inside diameter, and for tube part numbers, we referred to an outside diameter? This is not an accident.

#### What does-6 mean on a hose?

In this case, -6 hose would indicate a hose with an inside diameter of 6/16”, or 3/8″. In another example, a -10 tube would indicate a tube with an outside diameter of 10/16″, or 5/8″.
