How to choose a quick connector?
Quick couplings are classified according to their purpose, including pneumatic quick couplings, hydraulic quick couplings, and mold quick couplings.
Pneumatic quick couplings are mainly used for pneumatic equipment, jigs, and air pipes in workshops. Of course, there are also a small number of plastic factories or mold factories for transporting water to the mold. The cost is low, but it cannot withstand water temperatures above 60 degrees. The service life is not long and it is easy to break. It is not used to transport water. The material is copper + plastic. The pneumatic connector has teeth at one end and a trachea at the other end.
Hydraulic quick couplings are mainly used in equipment or machinery. They are mainly used to transport water and oil. In places with high pressure, some molds are also useful. The materials are copper, carbon steel, iron, and stainless steel. Teeth are 1/8, 1/4, 3/8, 1/2, 1, 1.2, 1.5, 2, etc. There are female and female heads.
Mold quick connectors are mainly used for forming molds, such as plastic molds, die-casting molds, blow molds, etc. It is divided into male and female heads. Generally, the male head is connected to the mold and the female head is connected to the water pipe.
Quick joint is a joint that can realize pipeline connection or disconnection without auxiliary tools.
The purpose of choosing quick connectors:
A. Time-saving and labor-saving: When disassembling and connecting water, oil, and air circuits through quick connectors, the action is simple, saving time and manpower.
B. Fuel-saving, water-saving, gas: When the pipeline is folded, the single valve on the quick connector can close the pipeline, and the fluid will not flow out to avoid fluid loss.
C. Environmental protection: When the quick connector is assembled and connected, the fluid will not be missed, and the environment is kept clean.
D. The equipment is divided into parts, which is convenient for transportation: large equipment or hydraulic tools that need to be easily carried, use quick connectors to disassemble and transport, and then assemble and use after reaching the destination.
