This Dixon STFC series brass hydraulic straight through quick connect coupler has a female NPT F threaded end, valveless construction, NBR seal, and connects to a hydraulic straight through quick connect plug. The female National Pipe Thread Taper Fine (NPTF) threaded end connects with male NPTF threads for a leak-tight connection or with male National Pipe Taper (NPT) threads for a leak-resistant connection. Brass provides corrosion resistance, ductility at high temperatures, and low magnetic permeability, and the nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) seal provides high tensile strength and resistance to abrasion, tear, and compression set. Valveless construction and straight through design provide maximum flow with minimum pressure drop. This coupler is used for hydraulic applications in industrial operations.

Hose fittings connect, control, change the direction of, and terminate the flow in piping and hose systems. They are made of brass, stainless steel, galvanized steel, and other materials that resist corrosion, pressure, and wear. Hose fittings have various types of connections, including threaded, barbed, push-to-connect, dry disconnect, and others including those based on internationally-accepted specifications. Hose fittings are used in systems such as air compressors, automatic manufacturing operations, aircraft controls, and tire installation in industries including agriculture, mining, road construction, firefighting, and aviation.
Dixon Valve & Coupling Company manufactures pipe and hose fittings and accessories. The company, founded in 1916, is based in Chestertown, Maryland.
