The coupling with identical connection interfaces
25 August 2013
täubli Connectors has introduced a coupling with identical connection interfaces, specially designed for all types of large volume fluid transfer.
There is no difference between the two mating sides of Stäubli’s new coupling, the VSU38; both sides are identical, allowing hoses to be quickly linked together without reorientation, eliminating any need to check and reposition hoses.
The hose is able to rotate independently of the coupling - a key benefit that ensures no stress or twist is applied to the hose making connection easier. The connectors are interlocked to ensure fluid flow only when both parts are connected and cannot be disconnected until the flow is shut off.
At the heart of the connector is a spherical valve, which, when open, gives a full flow within a compact bore size. The connector also has a draining feature which permits the hoses to be fully drained when required.
A number of additional features have been included in the connector design to aid operator safety and the work environment, including antistatic electrical continuity, secure valve opening and closing, and the ability to lock in the connected and open position.
