Exploring Options with Brass Dot Air Fittings
Created at :

Brass dot air fittings are a type of quick connect fitting that is commonly used in pneumatic applications. The brass dot type of fitting consists of two parts: the body and the sleeve. The body is brass with a series of ridges, or "dots", machined into it. The sleeve is also brass and has a similar series of ridges. To connect the two parts, the sleeve is slid over the body until the dots line up. Once aligned, the two parts are locked together by tightening a set screw. This forms a secure connection that can withstand high pressure. These unique fittings are a quick and easy way to connect pneumatic components without the need for tools or threading.
Brass is Heated and Then Formed into the Desired Shape
Brass dot air fittings are made of quality brass, and they are routinely used to reliably connect two pieces of material together. The brass is heated and then formed into the desired shape. Once it has cooled, the brass is polished to a high shine. There are various brass dot types of air fittings available on the market today. But are they safe? Here are some safety factors to consider before purchasing these increasingly popular fittings.
- The first safety factor to consider is the quality of the brass. Make sure that the brass used in the fitting is high quality and not faulty in any way.
- Another safety factor to consider is the pressure rating of the brass dot air fitting. Make sure that it is rated for the pressure you will be using it at.
- The last safety factor to consider is the installation of the fitting. Make sure that it is installed correctly and that there are no leaks.
