Fluid transfer is a task that takes place constantly whether is pumping gas from the pump to a car, from a cup to one’s mouth, or from water source to lawn sprinkler we always need to transfer different types of fluid to get it where we want it. As fluid has no boundaries unless contained somehow, we must transfer it in an enclosed housing to direct it to another location. The most common way is some type of hose or tube that transfers fluids. Some examples are gas pump lines, garden hoses, drinking straws, plumbing tubes, steel pipes and many more. Many machines and systems involve hoses, plumbing and tubes to transfer fluids within a system. For example on a car a line brings gas from the tank to the engine to get it to go. Many industrial manufacturing companies deal with machines that contain toxic fluids running through hoses and there is something that they use to help with the liquid transfer process.
Quick release fittings are made to attach at the end of a hose that transfers liquid from one source to another. Without shutting off the traveling of the liquid, when a hose is released from a source fluid travel stops completely until it is attached to another source that will allow the fluids to be released again. Using quick release fittings like this cuts down on spills and lost inventory of liquid substances. In some cases the liquid can be toxic and if spilled can be harmful to anyone around it. These devices help to ensure safety of the people that have to work first hand in transferring dangerous chemicals. Many companies and people have benefited from these small devices because they make their lives and jobs easier and more efficient.
