Easy Pneumatic Access Port

We recently had an inquiry regarding a transparent easy access port in their pneumatic tubing lines. Our simple solution is to install, wherever necessary a grouping of two axial-slit sleeves and a removable tubing section. The sleeves are to be mounted by hose clamps.

If one needs access to the pneumatic line, simply loosen the hose clamps and slide the sleeves off of the removable center tube.

After access, replace the center section, slide the sleeves back on, clamp, and tighten.

Of course, if it is not necessary to have a completely transparent access port, one can do the same by sleeving with Morris-type quick disconnects.
