Tech Tip: Improve air system safety and efficiency

Oct. 5, 2018
Choosing proper couplers for pneumatic systems and tools can positively impact shop safety and efficiency.

It’s important for maintenance and repair professionals to continuously seek ways to improve shop safety and efficiency. For instance, consider some common problems associated with the use of standard sleeve-locking pneumatic couplers:

  • Hose whip occurs during disconnection
  • Insecure connection occurs with dropping and dragging
  • Automobile finish damage caused by brass and steel couplers

Choosing safe and efficient couplers for connection of pneumatic tools or blowguns and connection of air hose to port will positively impact shop safety and efficiency.

Safety Push-Button Couplers, which conform to ISO 4414 Standard, help ensure a safe workplace and significantly reduce personal injury during disconnection. Maintenance and repair professionals can safely disconnect the coupler in seconds by pushing a single button.The impact and crush resistant Safety Push-Button Couplers consistently outlast competitor brands five to one, the company says. Features of the Safety Push-Button Couplers include:

  • A push-button to vent and release plugs
  • Secure, leak-free connections
  • A durable composite body that swivels for optimal positioning and will not scratch or mar automobile finishes
  • A color-coded button for identification of interchange profile
  • Optimized flow rate
