Parker Hannifin has expanded its FlatFace offering with the new SCFF series. This series offers users a number of benefits ranging from low-leakage decoupling to the avoidance of air entrapment during coupling. The couplings are tested in accordance with ISO 7241-2, and are also easy to clean and very flat.
SCFF plugs are available with a pressure eliminator, which means it is possible to connect couplings in the presence of accumulated or residual pressure without any problems. A miniature valve automatically relieves the pressure in the connecting phase.
Whether being used in mobile hydraulics, transport, or the oil and gas industry, SCFF couplings are highly resistant to vibrations and other forms of mechanical stress. The processes of coupling and decoupling are also fast and reliable: due to the inclusion of an ACME thread, no fluid escapes during these stages. The reliability of this system is enhanced by the swivel function together with the unique locking sleeve to avoid accidental disconnection.
