Perfecting Introduces New High-Performance Flushface Interchange Couplings
Charlotte, N.C., March 19, 2003 - Perfecting Coupling Company announces the introduction of the new HT-Series of flushface interchange couplings for use in industrial, agricultural and off-highway construction machinery. These new, no-spill flatface couplings meet or exceed the ISO 16028 interchange and performance standard adopted in 1999.
According to Jeff Wilson, product manager, Perfecting's HT-Series is ideal for use in many applications due to its wide array of end configurations, material choices, and resistance to brinelling. "Independent tests demonstrate that our flushface design exceeds ISO flow requirements and 1,000,000 cycles during standard ISO impulse testing. In fact, our products show some of the best flow & impulse characteristics when compared to other products available to customers today, anywhere in the world," he reported.
In addition, Perfecting's new flushface couplings exhibit excellent corrosion resistance, exceeding ISO 9227 requirements for zinc dichromate plating and frequently surpassing 120+ hours of salt-spray endurance testing. Operator safety has also been factored in, resulting in a design that will not eject the coupler's center valve stem under extreme burst or surge-flow conditions - thus eliminating a potential danger that exists with many competing flushface coupler designs.
Perfecting Coupling Company's new flushface interchange coupling products are available in steel or 316 stainless steel. For more information or to receive a catalog, call toll-free (800) 839-8980 or visit the website at www.perfecting.com.
