There are three active sandblast system couplings; HOSE ENDS which are used to make hose to hose connections or hose to blast pot connections, NOZZLE HOLDERS that accept the male threaded end of a sandblast nozzle, and the THREADED POT END that is connected to the combination air and abrasive mix from the sandblast pot. All three are available in aluminum or brass. Hose ends are also available in Iron.
NOZZLE HOLDERS are sleeve type couplings, secured to the hose with wood screws and have the same features as the sandblast hose end. The exception is that the end of the nozzle holder is NPT threaded to accept the sandblasting nozzle.
