KV2 Fitting Connector
The KV2 Series by SMC Corporation of America is produced from rugged ultraviolet and vibration resistant composite. Their one-touch technology simplifies tube insertion (with strong tube-holding force) and removal.
KV2's patented seal empowers tube-cut angles that are well above the standard in the heavy vehicle industry. In fact, KV2 connectors meet several industry standards, including:
- FMVSS 571.106
- SAE J1131
- SAE J2494
Their compact design makes them ideal for tight spaces where traditional fittings are incompatible. At the same time, they offer a secure connection that can withstand the high pressures typically found in pneumatic systems — preventing leaks and maximizing efficiency and safety.
DOT Air Fittings from OC Pneumatics
Without a secure and reliable connection between components, your pneumatic system may experience leaks or malfunctions. This can lead to downtime, lost productivity, and even safety hazards.
DOT-compliant air fittings, such as KV2 fitting connectors, are designed to meet strict safety and performance standards set by the Department of Transportation (DOT). These standards help to ensure that the fittings are safe to use in industrial and commercial environments.
