    Default Air Coupler Fittings

    What is the most common fitting/coupler for the quick release?

    All my equipment has the left (in the image) fitting, but I have plenty of the other fittings in my archives. To make a change will not be a problem.

    Depending on which quick coupler is used, they are often interchangeable. The one on the left(smaller diameter tip but longer) goes into the o-ring in the coupler. The other one (larger diamer, but shorter) pushes on the face of the o-ring in the coupler.
    In my experience I have seen the one on the left (smaller and longer) much more often

    Not so good ending.

    I bought an 8mm x 20m "High Pressure Hose" (note the quotation marks) from Builders Warehouse. TradeAir 20 Bar rating printed on the hose and "Tested to 1750kPa" on the packaging. (17.5 Bar ?? )

    Attached the fittings, connect to compressor (@ 8 Bar) and BAM ! Hose popped.

    Will take it back tomorrow for a refund.

    First off, the LHS fitting in pic is one to get.

    Secondly I would not buy specialised items from Builders aka Massmart aka Wallmart.

    Best to go to Rubber pipe/ Pressurised pipe supplier. Here in our area a few that are better priced than Builders. But I do not know situation in Gaborone

    Jip. My mistake. In my defence, it was rated 20Bar


    I have a hose that I got from a local hydraulic shop more the 15 years ago. It still in everyday use. I should have went back to them for the new hose.

    To finalise this:

    I got a refund from Builders (5 minutes in and out - well done ) and went to the hydraulic shop.

    Got a hose at 4 times the price as the Builders one.

    I found the spec. 20 Bar WP and 60 Bar burst pressure.

    Job done !

    The quote was BWP80-00/m

    After discount I payed BWP1100-00 for 20m. (55/m)

    In SA it would be much less.

    (Dynamische - It looks like a well known brand in the hydraulics industry. )

    On my compressor I use the same hose that they put on gas bottles. Cant remember exactly how long ago I fitted it, but it is more than 15 years ago and still no cracks.
    The pipe is also soft and rolls up easily.
