“There is an increasing use of personal cooling systems across numerous markets,” according to Andy Hass, director of marketing. “In some applications like automotive racing, a break-away coupling is mandatory. In other applications, it is an added convenience such as cooling vests for police officers, athletes or soldiers who may need to move quickly, and can’t be tethered to a cooling device.”
Colder’s BreakAway couplings are available in acetal with Buna-N o-rings, 316 stainless steel valve springs, and automatic shutoff capabilities. Available in in-line and panel mount styles with 1/4″ and 3/8″ hose barb terminations, the coupling’s maximum pressure rating is 20 psi and the temperature range is 0˚F to 150˚F.
