Absolutely leak-free larger couplings

Absolutely leak-free larger couplings Staubli, celebrating 50 years in connectors this year, have introduced much larger sizes to their well established HCB range of clean break, non-spill couplings. The new sizes are particularly suitable for high integrity bulk handling and filling applications where any leakage would be unacceptable, typically in the chemical, process engineering and defence markets. HCB couplings are a compact and flush faced non-spill design, preventing any air inclusion in the system when connecting as well as avoiding any spillage on disconnection. The initial HCB range introduced a few years ago included sizes up to DN8, in response to market demand for larger sizes, the range has been extended with DN40, 50 and 80 sizes now introduced. The new larger couplings are designed for use in situations when any spillage at all must be avoided. This may reflect safety concerns for example with flammable or corrosive liquids or for economic reasons with highly expensive chemicals. All of the HCB connectors feature the Staubli patented bayonet locking system which provides a safe, quick and reliable connection that is also suitable for high vibration applications. The locking system provides a positive feedback response, ensuring a high integrity connection and eliminating any chance of mis-connection. On the new larger sizes, the coupling can be fitted with a hand operated wheel if required.
