Parker launches new optimised FEM quick coupling series

Parker Hannifin has launched the new optimised FEM quick coupling series which it says offers an increased working pressure up to 350 bar and a decreased pressure drop for better flow properties.

The revised and updated FEM and FEC series have profiles corresponding to ISO 16028 and exceed the technical requirements in the ISO 16028 specifications. They are compatible with other series complying with the same standard. The couplings offer a spillage-free disconnection, minimal oil loss during uncoupling and are also easy to clean as they have flat face valves/bodies.

Thanks to the new valve design, the couplings have a minimum pressure drop, and achieve maximum cost effectiveness.

FEM plugs are available with pressure eliminator resulting in the possibility to connect couplings in the presence of accumulated or residual pressure without any problems. A miniature valve automatically relieves the pressure in the connecting phase.

The new FEM series is said to be very resistant to vibrations and other mechanical stresses. Whether being used in mobile hydraulics, transport or construction industry, the process of connection and disconnection is fast and safe, with the locking sleeve as standard to avoid accidental disconnection.
