Bullard Supplied Air Fitting Guide

The couplings pictured below are the most popular styles used on airline respirators.  A coupling, which is made up of a socket (or nipple) and a plug (or coupler), is also called a "QD" fitting or just "fitting" and comes in various socket (female) and plug (male) sizes.  Couplings can have male, female, or hose barb ends for different types of connections.
