Valcor Releases New Quick Disconnect Couplings

Valcor Engineering Corporation, a fluid control solutions company, released a new product line capability in the shape of its Quick Disconnect (QD) couplings.

Valcors’s new Quick Disconnect couplings are designed for aerospace applications with high pressure, high vibration, and large temperatures. The couplings are lightweight, have a large flow capacity, and minimal liquid loss during the ‘unmating’ process.

Existing QD designs are non-locking types that require contact to maintain the open position. Upon pulling it apart, each end closes and maintains the gas/liquid on each side of the fitting. They are capable of meeting low leakage requirements in high vibration environments. Current designs use tube stubs at the inlets and outlets for welding capabilities, with a 4-bolt flange.
