Introducing: Brass LP Fittings. The best way to interlock LP hoses, while eliminating the potential for a spark.
Brass is a highly durable material. This makes it ideal for LP hoses which require a resilient and long serving material. Steel can crack over time and introduce the chance of a leak on your LP hose. Once you install these brass fitting to your hose, it will retain their good condition for several years. They do not easily crack or break apart.
Brass fittings are capable of withstanding extremely high temperatures, making them fire resistant. Often times, they are one of the few items found after a home has been consumed by fire.
Amongst metal fittings, brass enjoys one of the highest resistance to corrosion. Brass fittings do not rust! Since corrosion and rust are two main reasons that cause wear and tear of metal fittings, brass fittings are ideal for beating corrosion.
The LP fitting unit is built of 3 Components the first one is the Fitting-
This brass fitting features a push-lock deep grooved barbs that create a tight hose connection. They are easy to use - just push the hose on and it is ready for the job!
The second component is the Socket- Rated Pressure - 2,700 PSI
This socket is all brass and eliminates the potential for a spark, unlike standard air fitting and coupling that are not recommended due to the potential for a possible spark. This unit features a hardened plug and sleeve along with solid bar stock construction, assures long service life by providing maximum resistance to damage caused by hydraulic and mechanical shocks.
The socket also allows for high flow capacity do to its cylindrical valve with its 360° metal to metal valve stop maintains valve alignment and insures that poppets open fully every time. The durable ball locking mechanism assures reliable connections every time. Many ball bearings distribute the load while providing alignment and excellent swiveling action to reduce hose torque and prolong hose life. In addition, the captive valve seal assures "bubble tight" poppet sealing. The valve seal is captured by the metal poppet to minimize seal washout or damage from high fluid velocity.
The last component is the Plug-
The Plug serves a two-fold function. It keeps the mating surface clean and free of contamination and protect the critical mating elements of the coupling halves when they are disconnected. In this way the plug is protected from damage that would make the total coupling unusable.
