Quick connect coupling valves are designed for higher flow rates with easy push-to-connect operation, improving efficiency by minimizing the connection time. A simple push of the plug into the socket creates a secure connection. The end-face seal offers security.
There is minimal pressure loss and increased flow rate by 15% above the standard model. The resistance to connection is minimal, making connection and disconnection easy. Said to be better than external o-ring models, these valves use appropriate seals to reduce the possibility of seal damage due to lack of lubrication.
They are only available in a steel body, making them unsuitable for oil or water. The option for a tube fitter type to handle the push-to-connect operation is also available.
