Euro Air Line Hose Compressor Fittings Connector Male Quick Release 5 PACK 1/4"
About this deal
Our wide range of air line fittings are ideal for connecting components and air tools, and are compatible with Irish style couplings. Take advantage of the high quality car tools available at low prices from Euro Car Parts. The collated flooring nailer in my previous post uses this type of banjo crimp at the body end of the whip hose Euro style air fittings such as XF-Euro Adaptors are the standard use in Europe and the Far East. PCL’s XF-Euro adaptors have a higher flow rate than the UK profile as they have a larger nominal bore - this is the internal diameter of the hole that runs through the length of the coupling or adaptor – this makes it less restrictive and ideal for use with larger air tools such as ¾” or 1” Impact Wrenches, and other high flow applications up to 35 bar / 508 psi. Another way to buy a hose is simply to buy one with BSP threaded ends (often 3/8in BSPM or 3/8in BSPF) and add your own adaptors, such as these (from top to bottom - BSPM x Euro female, BSPF x Euro female, BSPM x Euro male, BSPF x Euro male): Despite their compact size air hose fittings and connectors play a very important role in the overall performance of air compressors and the air tools that they are used with. The fittings maintain a constant flow of air and pressure within the hoses so that the performance of the air tools is not compromised. Having durable and reliable air tool fittings and air tool couplers is hugely important for the safe and efficient operation of your air tools. Our superb air tool fittings and couplers can enable you to extend your air supply and/or help you create more complex air systems to suit your needs. To ensure the equipment is in its optimal working condition the fittings must be kept in good working shape.
Hoses come in various sizes with dimensions stated as inside diameters (ID) and the banjos come in different sizes to fit them. BTW don't worry too much about NPT and BSPT - BSPT forms a non-air tight connection with NPT, you make it air tight by wrapping the male threads with a turn of PTFE tape before assembling.Incidentally, PCL manufacture their own Euro-compatible fittings called "XF". These are Euro fitting and are incompatible with the original PCLs Plus the cheapy plastic siding hose also has a female Euro end for tools I already have other end is make and goes into compressor.
PCL is recognised as the global market leader in the design and manufacture of tyre inflation, air line accessories and compressed air products for industrial, petrol forecourt and automotive markets. This ongoing success has been built on providing superior customer service with the commitment of a loyal and highly skilled workforce. The Standard and XF-Euro profiles do not interchange, for example, an XF-Euro adaptor will not fit into a UK style coupling. A standard adaptor will loosely fit into an XF-Euro Coupling, however this will result in a loss of air flow, so it important you have the correct profile. Experience over 80 years of innovative tyre inflation and compressed air products from Pneumatic Components Ltd (PCL). Both PCL’s standard and XF-euro profiles come in a large range of thread sizes, and are available with an integral hose tailpiece, male or female BSP thread. Unsure what thread size you require? Take a look at our handy guide. Again, these can be tightened with a pair of nippers. I don't but Jubilee clips as they are quite bulky and can catch on stuffBy using couplings there is technically no limit to how long you can make the hose. As a general rule, it is always better to have a single, longer hose than to have multiple hoses connected together. The more connections present, the more likely it is you will experience pressure drop. My existing tool ends that fit my cheap female to female spring hose. Plus the longer PLE fitting that came with my new hammer gun. Hose tails can be connected to couplings to enable fixing to airlines – tail sizes vary to fit different internal airline diameters.
Standard adaptors (commonly referred to as PCL’s air fittings) are the standard UK profile, these adaptors are longer than Euro adaptors. A standard adaptor is suitable for applications up to 14 bar / 200 psi, and will connect to PCL’s Airflow, Vertex, Safeflow and Non corrodible couplings – which coupling you decided to choose is down to whether your application is fixed, trailing hose, require a safety coupling or if it is being used in damp environments. Don't forget gloves are an essential item to have in your tool box and these are very popular with our customers: Do I stay with the shorter Euro tyoe ends sds my blowers/tyre inflator/sprayer etc all have these or do I swap to the longer PCL type.

There are many different types of air fittings but most air tools use one of just a few types of connector. The main things to consider are the fitting type and the thread size. Common fixing types include ¼” BSP, ¼” PCL and 3/8” NPT.PCL is part of the HORN GROUP of companies, joining the TECALEMIT brand offering products and services related to air, fluids and fuels. PLE? Most of the hoses I've looked at have either PCL ends or threaded ends, either NPT or BSPT. Most non European tools seem to come with a NPT female threaded body, so I make up my whip hoses by using an appropriate NPTM (male) x barbed air hose connector, a length of air hose, two crimp connectors (which technically require a special crimp tool but in reality can be pressed to fit using a bluntish pair of carpenters nippers) and a barbed air hose x Euro male end. This is a BSPT male x barbed hose connector and a hose crimp with the crimping tool and a hose cutter (sorry, no spare other ends or hose at the moment): They are all 3/8in (I think), but 1/4in is another common size, especially on smaller tools with limited air consumption Many of the hoses in our range will come already fitted with some type of end fitting so you can start connecting up to your air compressor and tools, any addition couplers you need will be the same size. There are many other types of fittings but I just wanted to cover the most popular fittings we come across and at least with a few images you may be able to identify what fittings you require. Hope this was of some assistance.
