When separating two hoses, dry break fittings permit a leak-free disengagement while retaining pressure. Radium dry break couplers use a bayonet style lock that will not leak when disconnected nor introduce air upon reconnection. Simply push and twist the knurled machined surface. They are designed for use in fuel or oil applications and are available in -6AN and/or -8AN flare fittings. The couplers have been successfully tested on Radium's test bench at 150psi engaged and disengaged. The anodized aluminum fittings are available as a set (inner and outer) or as individual parts.
If a step up (or down) in hose size is required, the -8AN and -6AN fittings are interchangeable and can be configured
