An air hose connector is a necessary component in air compressors. These fittings are made of metal to withstand the pressure of air compressors. It also has a tight seal to ensure proper air pressure delivery. Many air hose connectors are compatible with various hose couplings. To ensure that you are getting the right one for your compressor, you should choose the proper style.
An air hose connector can be easily identified by its color. These fittings are generally designed with 9/16"-18 male threads on either end. This makes them ideal for a variety of applications, including auto mechanics and small spaces.
Another type of air hose connector is a quick-release coupling. It makes connecting and disconnecting an air tool or air compressor simple and fast. It is also made with an internal shut-off valve that automatically shuts off air flow when the fitting is unplugged. There are two types of quick couplings. Both male and female versions are available.
There are two basic types of air hose connectors: automotive style and industrial style. The automotive style has one stripe across the fitting while the industrial style has a longer plug and different head. The key is to choose the right one for your needs. If you're not sure, you can use an NPT chart to determine the size of your pipe and fitting.
