So where can these fittings be found and how much do they cost? The answer for both of these questions varies vastly. To find one of these products you can look near or far, as far as kilometers underwater used in drilling operations or high in orbit around earth, for docking spacecraft. Also, you are able to find them as close as walking into a garage and finding a quick fitting on the air hose attached to the air compressor. Cost can also vary considerably, all depending on the size, application and material. As you can imagine, underwater drilling will employ a larger fitting than a small air hose used in a mechanics garage. Additionally, materials may change because of corrosive materials present or extreme temperatures.

Quick fittings are used as high as space and as deep down as drilling wells these fittings are used across a plethora of industries. A few of these industries are water transport, chemical industries and pluming in addition to the examples already presented. Where have you found quick fittings useful? Limiting the examples to only a few industries does not begin to show the helpfulness and versatility of these components that can make the task at hand so much easier.
