Adapting US fitting into metric male fitting

Adapting US mail fitting into metric male fitting to go into a quick release female fitting in and air compressor.


Hello, I purchased an air compressor from Germany and did not realize that the US male fitting would not read fit in the quick release female metric sitting on the air compressor. Is there some adapter that will convert from the US male fitting into a metric male fitting to fit into the quick release female fitting on the air compressor? Thank you for your response, Mark

NPT to metric

Maybe it was your intention, but you probably want to use a US style quick disconnect on the compressor - So get an adapter to change the metric pipe to NPT, and a new female coupler.

Mark, I was pretty sure this was covered on the NPT and Metric fittings pages?

Regardless, if you simply Google Metric to NPT thread adapters, you will find many sources for them, and for the fittings you wish.
