Fluid Transferring

Fluid transfer is a task that takes place constantly whether is pumping gas from the pump to a car, from a cup to one’s mouth, or from water source to lawn sprinkler we always need to transfer different types of fluid to get it where we want it. As fluid has no boundaries unless contained somehow, we must transfer it in an enclosed housing to direct it to another location. The most common way is some type of hose or tube that transfers fluids. Some examples are gas pump lines, garden hoses, drinking straws, plumbing tubes, steel pipes and many more. Continue reading

Air Quick Couplers

Air quick couplers are similar to quick connectors, disconnectors and quick release fittings. Most of them just slip right into place and some even lock when they are together to ensure a tight seal. Because air pressure is so powerful many of the air couplers come equipped with a two step disconnecting process. Continue reading

Hooked on Pneumatics

Pneumatic tools, pneumatic pertaining to air, are used in high torque applications. Examples include the removal of large bolts or wheel lug nuts. In order for these tools to operate properly a particular air pressure is required. A lack of air pressure may cause a tool to rotate too slowly and not work correctly. Typically powered by compressed air instead of electricity, air tools may Continue reading

Selecting the Right Air Quick Release Coupler

Air quick release couplers have undisputed value as time and effort savers in a variety of contexts. In industry, they keep fluid transmission lines connected reliably while simultaneously offering the ease and convenience of quick coupling and releasing. This is also true in commercial contexts as well as in consumer products contexts and for hobbyists and institutional users. Everyone who’s ever had the opportunity to use and compare both quick couplers and the alternatives – threaded couplers Continue reading
