Brass hose ferrules are used when manufacturing hoses. They are placed over the end of the hose before the hose barb fitting is installed and then crimped with a special crimping tool to secure the fitting in place and prevent leakage.
Hose ferrules must be selected carefully for compatibility with the size and type hose you are using.
Many hose manufacturers recommend the use of a hose ferrule that has in inside diameter (ID) between 0.010 and 0.030 larger than the hose outside diameter (OD). Be advised that hose OD may vary from manufacturer published specifications and throughout its length due to variations in the manufacturing process
