Quick Disconnects

  • Only use quick disconnects matching hose diameters. i.e. 1/2 inch port quick disconnect for 1/2 inch inside diameter hose.
  • Use as few quick disconnects as possible and avoid using adapter fittings with quick disconnects. Fittings and quick disconnects, while necessary, create flow restriction which causes heat and reduced tool performance.
  • Always use HTMA recommended quick disconnects that are flush-faced and dripless.
