    Out of interest what are the high pressure quick connects? I put female din on my pump for connecting the whips to but the quick connects look more elegant.

    They look like TEMA hydraulic quick release fittings to me. Would be interested to know though

    Me too, would be interesting.

    Looks to me like a standard ISO B series coupling in brass from the photo at least.
    The rated service pressure in brass is 2:1 pretty low at around 155 barg and thats when using hydraulic fluids, For gas and especially oxygen the WP to rated pressure is normally 4:1

    As a standard ISO plenty of suppliers Hansen, Snap-tite Parker and Eaton are the better manufacturers for everyone else there is China and India.

    Not the best idea IMHO from a mechanical point of view unplated brass is very soft and will wear over time with use, then they leak at best or disconnect under pressure at worse. Best practice is to use the standard 200/300 bar DIN connections.

    From a safety point using HP oxygen with these is a fools errand, most hydraulic suppliers are a no go area for a oxygen component build for obvious reasons.

    However the only brand approved for use in oxygen is Hansen series 600 brass for BIBS masks (Built in Breathing Systems) out of interest although the rated working pressure is 100 barg, in use they are lucky to see much above 10 bar in an air chamber and 30 bar in sat for deep Heliox BIBS.

    Should give the wary an idea just how trusted these things are. Iain Middlebrook

    By the look of things they look hardly used, what 40-50 fills? and as such I don't expect them to present you any problem,
    they rarely do with infrequent use, however over time and use a few leak first but mostly they just disengage when least expected
    whilst under pressure.

    On the female socket around the knurling there will be a make and model number can you post the numbers. Iain
