Quick Release Couplings
Quick release couplings are simple mechanical devices that permit easy and immediate connection or separation of fluid transmission lines with a minimum of stoppage time and spillage. They are important parts of a wide variety of industrial, commercial and consumer utilities.
Quick release couplings can also be called quick connect couplings, quick disconnect couplings, quick disconnect couplers, quick couplings, quick connectors, quick disconnects, breakaway couplings and many other names. Air quick couplers are used to make connections between air compressors and pneumatic tools. In hydraulic systems, hydraulic quick disconnects are used to quickly connect and disconnect fluid lines without losing fluid pressure or introducing air. Quick disconnect fittings are often designed to be operated with one hand without the aid of tools, though some models still require the use of a wrench. Quick release fittings are used in many industries where the efficient flow of fluids with quick and easy disconnection is necessary, such as in gas transfer, firefighting hoses, agricultural sprayers, automotive systems, chemical and food processes and in the construction industry. Quick couplings also help ensure safety. For example, aircraft fuel tanks are filled by hoses equipped with dry disconnect couplings because the fuel is extremely combustible and couplings reduce spillage. This prevents accidental fires and inhalation of fumes by the operator.
