Push-to-connect fittings is a kind of joint that can connect or disconnect pipelines without tools, and is a commonly used tool in many pipeline construction or maintenance. The quick connector has the functions of exchange, maintenance, test, delivery, filling and connection. According to different uses, its common classifications are:
GEKA Push-to-connect fittings
Application: “Geka” joint is specially used for low-pressure water pipes, and is a special quick joint for water spray hoses such as gardening and irrigation.
Structure: The “Geka” quick connector has no male and female heads, and is composed of a completely symmetrical “claw” structure on the left and right. Rely on the high pressure oil pipe rubber gasket for sealing. The serrated design of the tail greatly improves the friction force of the connection with the water pipe, and the design is simple and durable.
Tie rod type Push-to-connect fittings
Application: Designed and produced with reference to foreign advanced product cases. It is suitable for quick connection of various fluid soft and hard pipes. It is composed of internal and external threads and male and female components. Wide range of material choices, reinforced aluminum alloy, copper alloy, stainless steel, nylon plastic, etc., are widely used in the field of petrochemical chemical transportation.
Structure: Pull rod type push to connect fittings is divided into male head and female head. The male head is fitted into the female head in an arc shape, and there is a gasket at the bottom end of the female head. Rely on pulling or pressing the handles located on either side of the female head. Squeeze the male head onto the hydraulic fitting gasket to form a seal.
Special Push-to-connect fittings
Uses: Completely based on foreign tank trucks, container trucks and other supporting end connectors such as special quick connectors, threaded connectors and fixtures. For the end of the tanker oil pipeline. Because of its simple and rapid operation design and zero leakage rate stability, the tank truck series joints have been popular in the European market for more than 50 or 60 years.
How to Select Push-to-connect fittings
1. Type and temperature of fluid
Depending on the fluid, the suitable body material and seal material are different. For example, quick connectors are air. Steel is recommended, and brass or stainless steel is recommended for water.
2. The pressure of the liquid
Please select a quick connector suitable for the pressure resistance of the fluid pressure.The pressure of the fluid is also the key to selecting a quick connector. The quick connector for hydraulic pressure is 5.0Mpa (51kgf/cm²)-68.6Mpa (700kgf/cm²) to form a series, corresponding to the pressure resistance characteristics, the structure of the quick connector is also different.
3. The structure of the automatic opening and closing valve
Please select the quick connector of the valve structure suitable for the piping application.
For the structure of the valve, there are two-way on-off type, one-way on-off type and two-way open type. Except for the two-way switch type, fluid flows out of the piping during separation. So please pay attention.
4. The use environment of the quick connector
Please select the quick connector with the structure and material suitable for the use environment
The type, body material, and sealing material of the quick connector should be considered in combination with the humidity conditions, dust conditions, and the use environment that is easy to corrode.
5. Confirm that the selected quick connector connection threads should be consistent
In the process of using products of different brands, it is best to use the male and female heads of the same brand together. If they must be used interchangeably, it is best to consult the technical staff of the product supplier before use, and then use them after confirmation.
6. The shape and size of the installation
Please determine the type and material of the quick connector, and specify the fitting shape and size corresponding to the piping characteristics. Please note that dimensions are relative to fluid flow
