FasTest Inc.: Quick-Disconnect Connectors
July 23, 2012
The refrigeration quick-disconnect connectors feature a unique lever action, which requires minimal effort, for increased process efficiency and speed, said the company. Capable of accommodating high-pressure applications, up to 750 psi, these connectors do not require modified tooling and substantial force to seal, preventing damaging over- or under-tightening. Equipped with a locking mechanism that prevents accidental disconnect under pressure, these connectors eliminate burns due to media loss during connecting or disconnecting. Due to their design, the connectors meet strict environmental regulations, venting residual pressure with minimal media loss, the company said. Refrigerant connectors provide a superior solution for evacuation and run testing, increasing productivity and reducing operator fatigue in split system HVACR and heat pump systems.
