They are manufactured of zinc nickel-plated carbon steel and are rated for 1,200 hours protection from white and red rust. They feature a large body size of 1/2 to 1-1/2 in.
Their Nitrile seals make them rated for operating temperatures -40° to 223°F. Additionally, an orange seal helps users verify proper connection.
A screw thread connection eliminates brinelling and their socket sleeve can be pushed back for access to the mating face. Finally, their flat face design prevents fluid loss during disconnection.
