New Product: Quick-connect air-brake fittings

The Composite Quick-Connect (QCAB) Air Brake fittings are lighter than all brass-air connections and offer the same sealing when used with SAE J844 Type A and B quickconnect fittings.

A brass tube provides support for full airflow and ease of tube connection with low insertion force.

The Q-CAB 217 Series meet D.O.T. FMVSS 571.106-10, SAE J1131, and SAE J2494-3 re - quirements and are qualified with the Synflex Eclipse multilayer air brake tubing. The fittings are used for medium and heavy-duty truck, bus, and mobile off-highway air-brake systems.
