For fast connections of hydraulic hoses, Kuriyama of America offers Alfagomma’s ARGUS series of quick-disconnect couplings. These products comply with international standards ISO 7241-1 A & B, ISO 5675 and ISO 16028, having poppet and flat-face valves respectively. The standardized design ensures complete interchangeability with corresponding couplings currently in use.
ARGUS couplings feature patented Top Coat chrome-III zinc plating. The proprietary surface treatment is based on a system of trivalent passivation which produces outstanding rust and corrosion resistance. For example, tested according to ASTM B117-03 and UNI ISO 9227 standards, Top Coat ensures over 1,000 hours of red rust protection.
The wide-reaching product family includes the ISO-A range of true general-purpose quick release couplings, with sizes from 0.25 to 1.50 in. BSPP, NPTF and metric threaded connections, and working pressure up to 5,076 psi (350 bar). ISO 7241-1 B series is more applicable in the industrial sector (pressures can reach 5,800 psi/400 bar). The flat-faced range have sizes from 0.25 to 1.0 in., constant working pressure of 350 bar and minimal flow losses.
Kuriyama of America, in addition to being a leading manufacturer of hydraulic and industrial hose and related products, is the U. S. logistics and marketing partner of Alfagomma hydraulic and industrial hose products.
