Air Compressor Fittings
« on: June 17, 2020, 04:55:27 PM »
Howdy all

Anyone know what these two fittings are called (click on link below)

And do they come in a screw-in version so I can attach to this:

Thanks!

Looks like Nitto style.  That hose is NPT and most air fittings in Australia are BSP , 1/4 npt and BSP are very similar, same dia and pitch , just slightly different angle on thread. Should still fit up with a bit of sealant.

BGS sell the coupler  and other fittings singly or sets.

Excellent, thanks sparksy!! I can buy a BSP hose instead of NPT. I just want a really short hose that's all and I can't find any short ones online.

You’ll buy the flex line and fittings cheaper at Bunnings in a pack. Then cut to length and shorten. Buying as bits costs a heap.

Or drop in to your local Pirtek shop and get one made up. I've done that a couple of times and prices were reasonable.
Cheers, John.

Npt has a different to BSP Threads per inch.  Npt is 19 TPI  BSP is 18. You can buy a adapter NPT to BSP Cheers
