Fittings & Couplings http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/taxonomy/term/6599/more en 6W couplings handle high-pressure applications http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/fittings-couplings/6w-couplings-handle-high-pressure-applications <div class="node-body article-body"><p><img alt="" src="/site-files/hydraulicspneumatics.com/files/uploads/2014/06/Kurt-6W--HP-Couplings.gif" style="width: 300px; height: 199px; margin: 5px; float: right;" />High-pressure four and six-wire braided hose combined with new 6W couplings handle applications requiring high-pressure capabilities and temperatures from &ndash;40 to 250&deg;F. The bite-the-wire crimp, one-piece couplings, with nonskive design, eliminate cover skiving before assembly to the hose. Assembly is simple and quick and the couplings eliminate leaks and in-field failures caused by shock and vibration.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/fittings-couplings/6w-couplings-handle-high-pressure-applications" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/fittings-couplings/6w-couplings-handle-high-pressure-applications#comments Products Fittings & Couplings Thu, 05 Jun 2014 21:21:00 +0000 27291 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Exhaust coupler http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/fittings-couplings/exhaust-coupler <div class="node-body article-body"><p><img alt="" src="/site-files/hydraulicspneumatics.com/files/uploads/2014/06/Coilhouse_Exhaust-Coupler-2.gif" style="width: 200px; margin: 5px; float: right; height: 258px;" />The 5-n-1 Safety Exhaust Coupler reduces injuries to personnel and damage to equipment from a whipping hose that is disconnected while pressurized air is still in the line. The coupler stays connected to the plug until downstream air is completely bled off. The device features include easy connection under zero pressure and is safely disconnected without hose hip.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/fittings-couplings/exhaust-coupler" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/fittings-couplings/exhaust-coupler#comments Products Fittings & Couplings Thu, 05 Jun 2014 21:16:00 +0000 27281 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Midland Metal Introduces App http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/blog/midland-metal-introduces-app <div class="node-body blog-body"><p>Midland Metal Mfg released a mobile app. The app allows users to browse Midland Metals entire product catalog, check product availability, and place restocking orders.
