Accordingly, what are pneumatic fittings?
Pneumatic fittings are parts used to connect sections of pipe, tube, and hose in pneumatic (pressurized gas) systems. Compared to hydraulic fittings, pneumatic fittings are typically characterized by tighter seals and lower pressure requirements.
Do air fittings need Teflon tape?
6 Answers. You are correct that it is a good idea to use teflon tape on the threaded fittings, however no sealant is required or advised on the quick-connect part itself. These are designed to seal using internal o-rings. The documentation for your air compressor may specify exactly which type of fitting you have.
