EFC International offers safe and high-quality swing couplings for hydraulic, pneumatic, vacuum, gas, chemical fluid, and water applications.
The swing couplings are manufactured with the latest technologies to provide production methods that achieve efficiency, increase plant safety, improve productivity, and save costs for industrial connections.
Even small leaks can lead to big losses and they can also cause serious accidents. In fact, it has been shown that in the case of compressed air, leaking couplings account for an energy loss of 8 to 15%. The fasteners used to ensure reliable connections are critical in terms of strength and durability.
The features and benefits of EFC’s swing couplings include:
• Increased safety. Safety features allow for safe connections and disconnection without pressure, kickback, or fear of hose whip, which is typically experienced in standard coupling use. Pressure is always automatically off during the coupling process.
• Energy and cost savings. Check valves restrict airflow resulting in pressure drop and increased compressor energy consumption. When using compressed air operated equipment in conjunction with swing couplings, the result will always be a method of operation which is more efficient with low energy and consumption, making it very economical.
• Simple to use. Designed to replace most standard couplings including ‘standard industrial interchange’. Quick connection and disconnection is simple without line pressure or air loss in the system. The coupling swings easily into locked position.
• Compact. These couplings offer an eco-friendly design.
