In North America the CGA-540 fitting is most commonly seen on portable bulk storage cylinder valves for oxygen. The CGA-580 fitting is most often seen on portable bulk storage cylinder valves for inert gases like helium. We supply quick connectors for these two fittings in our Deluxe Fitting and Hose Kit as well as our Deluxe Gas Blending and Transfill Kit. Unfortunately, there are quite a few different fittings seen in many other parts of the world; we have encountered BS, DIN, DISS, JIS and Nf international standard fittings on cylinder valves outside the US. For example in the UK and Australia, most of Asia and Middle East, plus a handful of European countries, the BS341-3 fitting (aka "Bullnose #3") is most commonly seen on portable bulk storage cylinders for both oxygen and inert gases like helium.

To make a international compatible quick connector just mate this QD stem fitting with the appropriate nut & nipple for the valve on your bulk supply storage cylinder.

The good news is you can easily make your own quick connector for whatever valve is available on your bulk gas supply cylinder. Valve connector fittings are a two piece assembly referred to as a regulator inlet nut & nipple and are typically available in brass or stainless versions with either wrench flats or a handwheel. Globally, the most reliable low cost local source for the appropriate nut & nipple is your bulk gas supplier, because since they provide the storage cylinder and valve they will also sell the matching nut & nipple. The pipe stem on the other end of the nipple is universally available with 1/4 NPT threads.
