Reliable fluid connectors for the oil industry

07 February 2007

Stäubli’s new connectors incorporate the latest metal to metal sealing technology ensuring leak free operation under the most arduous conditions. Metal to metal seals are suitable for underwater applications over extended periods and provide excellent resistance to pressure and low or high temperatures. Where corrosion is a concern the connectors can be manufactured from austenitic stainless steel or for extremely harsh environments, Inconel. The system includes a self-aligning mechanism ensuring that a good metal to metal seal and connection is readily established, eliminating any danger of jamming. Compensation for misalignment includes both a pre guiding system with elastic connection, a double guiding system and swivel couplings. High precision, electro-erosion machining ensures perfect surface quality and alignment. Metallic seals also significantly reduce the operating cost normally associated with seal wear and tear.

Applications involving high pressures (up to 70,000psi) also call for specially designed connectors; Stäubli’s are the most suitable, capable of connection and disconnection under pressure with a simplified locking system and adapted to withstand a high flow rate and pressure shock. Moreover ,the flush face, non spill design eliminates any spillage.

Multi-coupling (stab) plates can be designed to accommodate all the connections required in an application for example, gas, fluids, water, data, electrics and power, connected simultaneously and automatically in one movement.
