  • Do you have a Trade Counter service for making hose assemblies?

    Yes, we do. We'll even make you a cuppa to drink while you wait for your hose assembly.

  • Why are some Aeroquip hydraulic hose & fittings measured with a nominal bore?

    Some hose standards e.g. SAE 100 R5 have a nominal bore to distinguish them for use with reusable hose fittings. They are very often used for high temperature hose applicationsn and enable hose assemblies to be made on -site without the need for specialist tools.

  • The end has come off my hose, can you swage/crimp a new one on for me?

    In short, no! Hydraulic and pressure wash hoses have a rubber outer cover that will degrade over time and we cannot re-end a hose that has previously failed.

  • What does LPG mean?

  • Why have Twin Ferrule Compression Fittings instead of Single Ferrule Fittings?

    Twin ferrule fittings are designed for high pressure, high temperature, high integrity uses in chemical, pharmaceutical, petrochemical, nuclear, power generation and instrumentation applications where leak-free tube connections are critical.

  • Do you sell Single Ferrule Compression Fittings?

    Yes! We stock a range of steel DIN2353 fittings for hydraulic tube and brass compression fittings for use on gas and LPG connections as well as low pressure air lines.

  • What is the difference between O.D and N.B?

    Quite simply; O.D. means Outside Diameter - generally for tube. N.B. means Nominal Bore - generally for pipe.

  • Do BSP and NPT threads screw together?

    BSP and NPT are different thread forms and should not be mixed.

  • How did you come up with Seagull as a name?

     Erm....long story, but if you combine a British Seagull outboard motor, the seaside and stainless steel; mix with a 'few' large single malt whiskies and out pops Seagull Stainless (or at least it did in someone's head) - this later became Seagull Fittings.


    It is also the name of our sister company Seagull Balustrades
