  • Hose Nipples

    • Combination nipples and hose menders are recommended for low-pressure discharge and suction service for compatible liquids. They are not for compressible products such as air or nitrogen on sizes 1 1/4" and above.
    • Combination nipples and hose menders are not recommended for steam.
    • The working pressure may vary with the construction of the hose, the type of clamping system used and the application.
    • In accordance with the R.M.A. bulletin for oil suction and discharge hose, a coupled length of hose in any size, should be tested to 1 1/2" times the working pressure and held for fifteen minutes without leaking or coupling movement. For additional information and detailed instruction on testing procedures, see the Rubber Manufacturers Association (R.M.A.) handbook.

  • Suction Hose Male & Female Aluminum Shank / Brass Nut

    All Suction Hose Couplings are NPS (National Pipe Sraight) Thread.

    The primary goal of providing imported products is to offer a convenient and consistent source for low-cost commodity hose fittings to our customers.

    While imported products are rarely innovative or technologically advanced, they do fill a need when economy is of primary importance.

    All Suction Hose Couplings are NPS (National Pipe Straight) Thread.

  • Suction Hose Gaskets

    Neoprene Suction Hose Gaskets. Teflon and Leather also Available.

  • Chicago Fitting Blank Cap

    The use of an Air King safety clip or wire type retainer is necessary to ensure Air King universal couplings will not become accidentally disconnected. This guarantees the fittings are properly connected because the safety pin will not go through the holes in mating flanges until couplings are locked in place. Only one Air King safety clip or wire type retainer is required for each Air King universal coupling.

    • To provide protection against coupling breakage and related hazards, Dixon recommends the use of a whip hose.
    • Air King is rated to 150 PSI at ambient temperature (70ºF).
    • Standard Air King fittings come with AWR4 rubber washers.
    • Air King meets pressure requirements as specified in A-A-59553 commercial item description superseding Mil Spec.WWC-633D.
    • King is for air and water service only Warning: Never use any Air King coupling for steam service!
    • None of this catalog's information is to be interpreted to mean that this type of coupling is suitable for use on steam hose. It is not.

  • Hose Menders

    • Combination nipples and hose menders are recommended for low-pressure discharge and suction service for compatible liquids. They are not for compressible products such as air or nitrogen on sizes 1 1/4" and above.
