Duct Cleaning / What is the difference between 1/4” vs. 3/8” industrial quick disconnect air fittings?
1/4" quick disconnect fittings are typical fittings found in most air compressors and airline tools found at your local hardware store, however, 3/8” quick disconnect fittings are a more of a commercial application. 3/8" quick disconnect fittings are larger in size and have a higher flow rating, they allow your tools to receive more air and work much more powerful. The air whips will whip harder and more aggressive, the skipperballs with thrust and propel dirt and debris much further and more aggressively down the ductwork. All of Heat Seal Equipment duct cleaning machinery is sold with 3/8” quick disconnect fittings. Heat Seal's quarter inch quick disconnect fittings are compatable with quick disconnect fittings you can find at yur local hardware store (Homehardware, Lowes, Home Depot, etc.)
