What Is A Minsup Fitting?

hydraulic system with minsup fittings

A Minsup fitting is a stainless steel claw coupling that connects hoses together. Minsup claw couplings are designed to be universal so that they can provide quick and reliable connections. Suitable for corrosive environments, Minsup fittings are traditionally used for conveying air and water and are applicable across a range of industries, including mining and mineral processing.


What are the advantages of a Minsup coupling fitting?

There are many advantages of using Minsup couplings, including:

  • Reliable: Minsup couplings help to securely couple hoses, offering longevity and reliability when installed professionally. While they can transport water and air, they can’t convey steam.
  • Universal: One of the biggest advantages of minsup couplings is that they are universal, meaning if a fast repair job is required, there’s no added stress about finding a suitable coupling, minimising downtime and damage.
  • Applicability: Another huge advantage of Minsup couplings is that they can be used in a range of applications, including mineral processing, underground and surface mining, and compressor and air tools.
  • Interchangeable: Minsup couplings are interchangeable with all sizes even if the mating coupling has a hose, male or female tail.
  • Specifications: All Minsup claw couplings comply with AS 2660 and AS 2554 (Hose and Hose Assemblies for Air/Water).


Things to know before using Minsup fittings

Before using a Minsup fitting, here are some things to bear in mind:

  • When using Minsup A-Type couplings, the use of a Minsup safety locking pin is necessary to ensure that it will not become accidentally disconnected. Note that the pin will not go through the holes in either coupling until they’re locked into place.
  • Minsup standard seal couplings should not be used with A-Type bellow seal couplings.
  • A-Type couplings should never be used for steam hoses.
