Based on the popular SP Cupla model which is used globally in high quantities the new successor model SP-A has been developed and already introduced by Asian’s leading quick connecting coupler manufacturer Nitto.The flow rate could be increased by remarkable 64% compared to the previous model. This new increased flow rate sets a new milestone compared to comparable couplers in the market.
A higher flow rate means higher productivity – hydraulic cylinders will move faster, die-casts will be cooled earlier. As a consequence the production costs are decreased.Thanks to the newly designed shape of the valve head, the valve returns automatically and smoothly to its original position when disconnected. This structure enhances safety by sealing the flow passage of individual sockets and plugs.
SP-A couplers can be used in various applications up to a pressure of 75 bar.The maximum size is 1”. All versions are made in PT female thread. Materials: steel, brass, stainless steel SUS 304.
Beside this new model this famous manufacturer offers a broad range of couplers for nearly every application.
PCN Europe's November issue features an Industry Special concerning the Oil & Gas industry; in our technical article on the subject we look at the role rotary encoders play in the oil or gas production , in another one we discuss the opportunities fracking could offer for the valve industry. Our Product Focus on Pumps, Valves & Compressors includes among others an application story showing how screw blowers increase the energy efficiency of water treatment. You might also be interested in our case study showing you how automation and drive technology help the brewery industry to maintain their market position. This edition also presents you with many other application stories and product news from all areas of the processing industries, enhanced with datasheets and videos.
