This Dixon VHC Series steel hydraulic quick connect coupler has a female NPT threaded end, valveless construction, NBR seal, and connects to a hydraulic quick connect plug. The female National Pipe Taper (NPT) threaded end connects to male NPT connections. Steel provides better weldability and greater rust resistance than wrought iron, and the nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) seal provides high tensile strength and resistance to abrasion, tear, and compression set, and the valveless construction allows flow when the coupler is disconnected.. It is used for general purpose hydraulic applications in industrial operations.

Hose fittings connect, control, change the direction of, and terminate the flow in piping and hose systems. They are made of brass, stainless steel, galvanized steel, and other materials that resist corrosion, pressure, and wear. Hose fittings have various types of connections, including threaded, barbed, push-to-connect, dry disconnect, and others including those based on internationally-accepted specifications. Hose fittings are used in systems such as air compressors, automatic manufacturing operations, aircraft controls, and tire installation in industries including agriculture, mining, road construction, firefighting, and aviation.
