D.O.T. (Department of Transportation) approved Push to Connect fittings are the most commonly used connection in air brake applications. The compact style of a Push to Connect fitting is well suited for installing in confined areas. However D.O.T. regulations require all nylon tubing air brake connections have fittings with an inner tube support. The tubing slides into the fitting and the metal inner tube support slides into the tube. This provides a more solid connection for over the road air brake systems.
Fast and Repeatable
Push to Connect couplings allow for a fast and easy way to repeatedly connect and disconnect air or fluid lines. If a tube or hose in a fluid or air system needs to be disconnected and reconnected on a frequent basis the best solution is a Push to Connect fitting. It will improve productivity, ensure a properly sealed connection and eliminate downtime.

DIN Fitting Connections are also used in Check Valves & Non Return Valves depending on what your application is.
Check/Non Return Valves
A check valve, otherwise known as a non return valve is a spring loaded valve used in liquid systems where the flow should only go in one direction and safeguards from back flow. These valves are able to be installed inline and look very much like a large fitting.
In this post, we will talk about four different types of DIN Fittings including DIN 2353 24° cone, DIN 2353 fittings, metric standpipe fittings & banjo fittings.
DIN Metric and BSPP (British Standard Parallel Pipe) are the most common thread styles in Europe. DIN type tube fittings conform to the requirements of ISO 8434-1, DIN 2353, and DIN EN 3850 standards. This ensures the interchangeability with leading brands of fittings.
You may already be familiar with the term "DIN Fittings" but do you know what it actually stands for and what DIN fittings are commonly used for?
DIN stands for "Deutsches Institut für Normung", which means "German institute for Standardization". DIN 2353 tube fittings are most commonly used in industrial, oil & gas and construction equipment in hydraulic and pneumatic applications. Metric O.D. sizes range from 4mm to 42mm, and the most common industrial applications use carbon steel or stainless steel material.
Over the weekend, our Brennan Montreal office moved from St. Laurent, Quebec to a newly renovated space in Laval, Quebec. Located about 20 minutes away, the new Brennan location in Laval has more than double the office and warehouse space, and was built entirely to Brennan specifications. It provides easy access to main highways and is located in a corporate park setting.
