Micro couplers are used in systems where rapid and repeated connecting and disconnecting of fluid conductors is required. They are ideal for use on test equipment, patch systems, quick set-ups of machines, jigs and fixtures. Micro couplers offer an easy solution, without the use of tools, for the connection and disconnection of single tubing.
The plug connector has a specially designed electroless nickel plated brass body with a Buna-N O-ring retained opposite the barb. This quality O-ring ensures a leakproof seal when connected to a socket component. The plug connector body is secured within the plug connector nut by a c-clip enabling the barb to float and rotate thus accommodating the natural twist of the tubing and providing for easier installation.
The compact straight-thru socket connector is used on systems where unrestricted flow is required. When coupled with the plug connector the overall length is only 5/8”- ideal for limited space applications.
The unique design of the in-line socket connector with shutoff valve ensures maximum flow and a reliable seal. When connected, flow is directed into a side port on the stem and out the output port. When disconnected a spring slides the stem forward thereby sealing the valve seat and stopping the flow. A Buna-N O-ring retained near the end of the valve stem ensures a reliable, leakproof seal.
The bulkhead socket connector with shut-off valve provides the durability and convenience often required for use on test equipment. This miniature coupler (1.53 OAL) can be mounted on a control panel via the 15/32-32 thread, two (2) jam nuts and a lock washer are provided to secure the component in place.
