  • Cable Connectors: Our Link to Entertainment

    If you own a television, than chances are you know cable television connectors look like a somewhat bulky, semi-flexible wire with an extruding metal point. That metal point is then inserted into a socket in the back of the TV and secured with a hexagon fitting. I remember interchanging the cable wire with another wire to hook up our video game system. My brother bought a plug that mimicked the cable wires for TVs without those convenient red, white and yellow plugs. Although it was a pain to constantly switch...

  • Turning on the Apparatus

    At my house, if we want to use our big screen television we have to go through the ordeal that we call turning on the apparatus. We go through this tribulation because in order to use our media device we must turn on the T.V., the audio system that is hooked up to speakers and the Playstation 3. We don't have cable so we use Netflix through the Playstation. None of this would be possible without using an adapter. Without using this male coupler there would be no way all...

  • The Convenience of Quick Connect Couplings

    My dad does a lot of yard work that involves a hose. He started a few gardens in little islands with rock borders in the back yard. There are a few vegetables and flowers that he enjoys tending to within them that need to stay hydrated during the summer. There is only one hose in the back so he has to switch back and forth from the nozzle to sprinklers. He also bought a power washer to clean the cars and windows with that uses the hose in the front...

Industry Information

Quick Connect Couplings

Quick connect couplings are tools used to allow for the quick and easy connection and disconnection of fluid transmission lines. Fluid transmission lines are very important components in an extensive variety of industrial, commercial and consumer utilities.

Quick connect couplings, also known as quick disconnect couplings, quick connectors, quick couplings, quick disconnect couplers, quick disconnects, quick connectors and quick disconnect fittings, can sometimes be found in hydraulic systems, light commercial process equipment like pressure washers and in many other utilities. Quick disconnect couplings are used in a variety of industries, including automotive manufacturing, agriculture, chemical processing, food processing, firefighting, plastics fabrication, construction and many others. In some cases, it can be convenient or necessary to equip fluid transmission lines with connectors that allow for quick and easy connecting and disconnecting. When switching between pneumatic tools in a metalworking shop, for example, quick releases save workers several minutes. In the case of a tool malfunction, quick releases make possible the immediate stoppage of pressurized air flow to the tool. This is also true of hydraulic quick disconnects.

Quick connect couplings are composed of two mating halves used to join two pipes together. Within a quick connect coupling, there is a male plug and a female coupling; different coupling designs connect in different ways. One of the most common quick connect configurations involves female parts with retractable sheaths. The sheaths are used to cover several small bearings, the position of which determines whether the male part can be connected or removed. Other designs include simple plugs as well as push-on, threaded and twisting varieties. Most quick connect couplings are composed of metal materials, such as brass, aluminum and stainless steel. However, plastic materials have become more common because they are resistant to corrosion and comparably less expensive. Many quick connect couplings are designed to prevent leakage from the lines they connect, and they often are fitted with shut-off valves for this reason. Preventing leakage from disconnected lines reduces the chances of employee injury and environmental degradation because of exposure to leaked chemicals. This feature makes quick connect couplings very attractive to professionals in industries that involve the transmission of hazardous materials through fluid lines.
