The materials of construction of these connectors are stainless
steel tubulations cemented into an anodized aluminum blocks. They
have a caged O-ring gasket design that seals when connected. The
maximum pressure rating is 300 psi.
When used in a high vibration area or when making and breaking
connections multiple times, you may want to consider the same
designs only utilizing a brass body with the steel turbulations
silver soldered into the brass. This can also be used when an extra
safety factor is required to insure no leaks due to handling.
The 2 connector halves can also contain different tubulation
sizes, thus using it as a tube reducer. Inorder to do this the
aluminum bodies have to be compatible--specify this when requested
a quote or placing an order.
