Our Air Quick Coupler are also known as quick connect couplers. These are general purpose couplings that can connect at either end of the connection.
Quick couplings can be connected and disconnected easily as they are compact but very robust and sturdy in their application. They are highly reliable as they provide unswerving service for the transfer of fluid for pneumatic, hydraulic and vacuum systems.
The couplings on the flow side have a floating ball valve that closes automatically when the couplings are disconnected and hence prevent the spillage of fluid from the system.
They are generally designed according to the maximum working pressure and could be made of steel, brass or stainless steel depending upon the application and the type of fluid.
The major applicable fluids are air, oil and water. Specific grades of hydraulic oil, fuel oil and lube oil could be used as well for the same.
Quick Coupling for Air
These couplings can become sluggish over a long time and might pick up rust due to the nature of the fluid being transferred and hence extreme care must be taken when they are removed from the pressurized system.
Simple hack – These couplings must once be put in diesel oil after removal for the smooth functioning of the ball float and the small steel balls which form the part of the mechanism.
All the main engine and auxiliary engine hydraulic tools are connected by high-pressure hydraulic hoses joined by quick couplings which are robust and have a high strength to witness such high pressure ranging from 0-2500 bars or higher.
These couplings must be checked for their operation before the system is pressurized to prevent unwanted injuries.
After connecting couplings, they must be rotated to check their proper connection. The coupling heads rotate on the balls inside the coupling and hence ensure their perfect connection.
The couplings basically have two parts mainly – a socket and a plug.
The socket is a male part of the coupling and the plug being the female part.
