10 SERIES: 1/16” FLOW SIZE – TWIST LOCK
These twist lock couplings are intuitive to use and make an audible 'click' when coupled with their improved “Easy Grip Barrel” that provides an ergonomic handle with a non-slip more secure grip and reliable connection every time.
20 SERIES: 1/8” FLOW SIZE – LEGACY METAL LATCH
40 SERIES: 1/4” FLOW SIZE – LEGACY METAL LATCH
42 SERIES: 3/32” FLOW SIZE – DUAL FLOW PATH
These general purpose legacy couplings have been the standard solution for applications throughout the world. These couplings offer the largest selection of sizes and configurations. 20 Series and 40 Series are provided in a durable natural Acetal (POM) Thermoplastic, Polypropylene or Chrome Brass.
30 SERIES: 1/8” FLOW SIZE – ADVANCED PLASTIC LATCH
50 SERIES: 1/4” FLOW SIZE – ADVANCED PLASTIC LATCH
60 SERIES: 3/8” FLOW SIZE – ADVANCED PLASTIC LATCH
65 SERIES: 1/2” FREE FLOW – ADVANCED PLASTIC LATCH
These innovative couplings were designed to be more durable and cost efficient with less metal components. Their ergonomic design is proving to be the ideal solution for tubing applications.
42 SERIES: 3/32” FLOW SIZE – DUAL FLOW PATH"
100 SERIES: 1/16” FLOW SIZE – TEN LINES, ONE CONNECTION"
The multiport couplings feature an intuitive slide latch that easily connects/disconnects up to ten fluid lines. The coupling set can accommodate 1/16”, 3mm or 1/8” flow size inserts to meet specific application needs.
