Press Release Summary:
Available on MegaCrimpÂ® couplings for wire-braid hose and GlobalSpiralÂ® couplings for spiral-wire hose, Full-Torque Nut(TM) couplings have large holding shoulders that evenly distribute stress forces at nut for resistance to over-torquing and cracking. Consistent sealing force promotes leak protection, and nut size is optimized for wrench access. Available in metric sizes only (female fittings), products feature TuffCoat(TM) plating for resistance to rust and corrosion.
Original Press Release:
Crack Down on Premature Coupling Failure
Crack down on nut cracking, seat damage, leaks, corrosion and premature coupling failure with Full-Torque Nut(TM) couplings from Gates.
Available on MegaCrimp® couplings for wire-braid hose and GlobalSpiral® couplings for spiral-wire hose, Full-Torque Nut couplings round out the complete Gates hydraulic fitting line. Its large holding shoulder evenly distributes stress forces at the nut for unsurpassed resistance to over-torquing and cracking.
Other advantages of Full-Torque Nut couplings include:
o Stronger and more durable than staked nut fittings
o Patented design with premium quality machined components
o Maximum strength and durability
o Consistent sealing force for leak protection
o Larger nut for easier wrench access
o TuffCoat(TM) plating that performs at a 500 percent improvement over SAE standards for rust and corrosion resistance
o Available in metric sizes only (female fittings)
o Meets global ISO standards and specs in all drop sizes
Increase productivity and uptime, while eliminating damaged couplings and unsightly leaks from too much torque.
