Quick Release Couplings

Faster® has had more than forty-five years experience in the hydraulic sector and today has the widest selection of quick-action couplings for middle, high and very high pressure: 24 different lines, interchangeable with more than 2000 types of couplings. FASTER® products are interchangeable with the most widely used couplings on the market.

Quick action couplings are primarily designed to allow quick and easy connection/disconnection of fluid transfer lines.  The installation of Quick Action Couplings in fluid systems can eliminate the need to close valves, recharge and bleed the system as well as minimsing fluid loss whenever a component or attachment is removed or fitted to the system.  The ability of some Quick Action Couplings to rotate is also of benefit for relieving torsional stress on hose assemblies.

N.B. Quick Action Couplings are NOT designed for use as constant rotation unions. Hydraulink swivel unions should be used for this function.

The following questions should be considered to ensure the correct coupling is selected for the application.

  • What functions are required of the coupling?
  • What is the fluid flow rate required?
  • What is the system pressure – include spike pressures?
  • What is the allowable pressure drop at required flow rate?
  • Does the coupling need to be connected/disconnected under pressure?
  • What fluid is being used?
  • Is minimum fluid loss or air inclusion critical?
  • Does the coupling need to interchange with existing units?
