    Product Details
    Quickly and effortlessly switch lines between fittings with this stainless steel quick disconnect. This female quick disconnect with 1/2" NPT threads easily accepts the male version (either 40854 or 40857). Just press down on the female disconnect's spring-loaded band and slide the male disconnect into place, then release the band to lock it down against the internal gasket. Use with hot or cold liquids up to 60 psi. Use caution when transferring hot liquids - the stainless disconnect will get hot to the touch.

    High quality
    High quality piece. Makes brewing easier moving to this type of connection. Saves my back from moving liquid from vessel to vessel.

    Quick and painless?
    These are great and disconnect so easily that it's easy to forget your ball valve is open. Be sure your valves are closed before, at the very least, making a mess. Or worse, a trip to the doc.

    Excellent Product
    I was skeptical when my son recommended I purchase and use these. However they have proved to be a very worth-while investment! Worth every penny.

    Does this have an O ring and what size is it?
    H O on Sep 3, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, a white silicone ring. I was unexpectedly missing one on my first brew day using the disconnect so I had to pull another apart. The ring I examined was 14.5mm ID and 20.2mm OD, which probably isn't exactly the original size prior to installation. Since my fittings worked very easily, I would purchase a replacement either a small amount larger or thicker depending on what I can find.
    What size is the hose barb?
    A shopper on Mar 2, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: the OD is 1/2" and the inside diameter is 3/8". NB should have that in their product description, but they don't always and maybe the reason for your question. One supplier i know of has 5/8" OD hose barbs that have 1/2" ID (male and female), but a) i don't feel the 1/8"would make a difference and b) i'm to about to spend all that dough to replace the 13 female barbs i have i my system currently. Had i known then what i know now it would be different. If you've already made the purchase stick with it (this is home brewing not industrial brewing so things don't have to be perfect) if not do more research. goggle 5/8" female barbs and see what happens. hope this was helpful. cheers! pete
    Where can I get replacement silicone Orings?
    charles p on Feb 12, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: We do stock replacement O-rings (SKU 41095 ) for the disconnects. It is an item we do not offer on the website but if you give Customer Service a call we can get them ordered for you.
    Does it have a valve that closes when disconnected or is it always open?
    R E on Sep 26, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: This does not stop the flow when disconnected

    It is always open
    So, does the female part of this screw onto a 1/2 inch threaded port on a pump, for example, and then the hose barb snaps into the other end of the female part, to connect a hose via the barb to the pump allowing quick connect/disconnect?
    V E on Oct 30, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: For this piece you would insert the barb end into a hose and the female disconnect will accept a male disconnect. We do offer the female disconnect with both male and female threaded options.
