Original Press Release:

Eaton's Expanded Series of FD85 Thread to Connect Couplings Provides Additional Sizes for Reliable Connections in Oil and Gas Applications

EDEN PRAIRIE, MINN. … Power management company Eaton today announced the expansion of the FD85 Series quick disconnect coupling product line. The couplings, which help prevent downtime caused by leakages, pressure drops, contamination and difficult assemblies in industrial and mobile equipment, oil and gas, and construction applications, are now available in 1 ¼ inch (in.) and 2-in. body sizes.

All sizes of the FD85 Thread to Connect Couplies Series, including the previously announced ¾-in., 1-in. and 1 ½- in. sizes, now carry a Lloyd’s Registry Certificate for oil and gas applications as a standard offering. The independent certification provides assurance that the couplings will perform to industry standards, which helps to reduce costly downtime due to equipment malfunction or failure. Each mating part will also carry the marking, indicating that the couplings are approved for blow-out prevention applications.

“The expansion of the FD85 Series will provide our customers with more sizing choices for the reliable products they already count on,” said Canan Myers, product manager, Metal Products, Eaton. “The Lloyd’s Registry certification for all sizes delivers the additional peace of mind that comes from knowing that the products have been proven through a very intense, standardized testing process.”

The Lloyd’s Registry Certificate for fire conditions as outlined in API 16D and EUB Directive 36 Appendix 3 certifies the products as capable of maintaining pressures when exposed to a 700 degrees Fahrenheit temperature for a five-minute period. The certification applies to those assemblies where both mating parts are Eaton FD85 Series thread to connect couplings.
