- It is important to be safe when installing quick disconnect couplings into a pneumatic circuit.
Never install a pneumatic coupling directly into an air tool, use a piece of hose that is at
least 18" long, between the tool and the coupling, to prevent damage to the coupling. To protect
the operator, safety devices, such as a safety check valve and safety cable should be installed
in case there is a hose or coupling failure.
- Operating pressure for couplings utilizing hose barb connections may be dramatically reduced to
that of the hose rating and/or hose end connection combination. Consult hose manufacturer's
catalog for hose end connection ratings. If in doubt, test under controlled conditions for
suitability to application.
