Parker Hannifin has launched a new range of optimised FEM Quick Coupling Series, said to offer an increased working pressure up to 350 bar and decreased pressure drop for better flow properties.
The revised 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 and offer a spillage-free disconnection, minimal oil loss during uncoupling. They are also easy to clean with flat face valves and bodies.
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 series is said to be resistant to vibrations and other mechanical stresses. Whether being used in mobile hydraulics, transport or construction industries, the process of connection and disconnection is fast and safe, with the locking sleeve as standard to avoid accidental disconnection.
