Dixon Steel 3500 Female Nipples

Item # N/A Category
  • The constant vibration created by air tools, like air drills and pavement breakers, is destructive to air hose couplings, especially the quick-acting type. To provide protection against coupling breakage and related hazards, Dixon recommends the use of a whip hose.
  • To construct a whip hose, connect one end of a short (3′ to 10′) air hose to the air tool using a 3500 type steel nipple. Connect the other end of the hose to the air supply using the standard quick-acting coupling. The heat treated 3500 nipple will withstand vibration far better than the standard coupling and provide a safer connection. The whip hose should remain permanently connected to the tool.
  • For air and water service only
