ACME hose end couplings for NH3

ACME hose-end couplings are frequently used in hose operated LPG and NH3 transfers and provide a safe connection and fast filling for the likes of bobtail trucks and anhydrous ammonia nurse tank service.

Product description

The handle on the quick-acting valve provides a full flow when the handle is flipped and instant and complete shut-off when returned to starting position. Once closed, the handle locks for added protection and does not require additional filling adaptors or connectors as they are fully contained units.
