Beswick Engineering’s new dry break, no spill, M3 quick disconnects breaks new ground in the fluid power industry by squeezing a lot of utility and performance into a space saving package. The design is a step up from a double shut-off as it is designed with a smaller dead volume improving the level of sealing. Dry breaks are ideal for applications where leakage cannot be tolerated.
The dry break quick disconnects are miniature in size and are machined with a M3 thread, while also constructed from corrosion resistant 303 stainless steel throughout, weighing only 5.6 grams. Both the internal and external ends contain a shut-off mechanism. The improved level of sealing achieved with the dry break design eliminates the possibility of external leakage during disconnection and minimizes the introduction of air into the system when the two halves are re-connected.
If a level of sealing beyond that provided by a double shut-off quick disconnect is required, the “dry-break” quick disconnects should be specified. Fast and simple tube connections save valuable time while the M3 thread saves valuable space.
