Hydraquip brings double-shut-off couplings back to the market
Hydraquip has launched a new range of double-shut-off couplings for the commercial H&V and air-conditioning sectors. Hydraquick couplings can be connected and disconnected without having to shut down or drain the system. Terminal units can also be looped out during the flushing process.
These couplings are based on a proven design (Tema) that has been used in the building-services industry since the early 1990s. They are primarily designed and used for (but not restricted to) ceiling panels and fan-coil units.
Two sizes of coupling are stocked for immediate despatch or for inclusion on a flexible-hose assembly.
Geoff Kelley, commercial director, explains, ‘We have been supplying quick-release couplings into this market since the late 1990s, but have seen many projects specify them initially only to have them de-specified once it has reached the actual installation due to the costs involved.
‘With the launch of the Hydraquick range, we can offer users improved deliveries with significant savings against previous options, which we feel will allow their inclusion in more projects. In a very short space of time and prior to the official launch, we have taken orders for nearly 3000 pieces attached to our hose assemblies for a project in the UK, along with their re inclusion into the spec of a major OEM’s product range which had previously taken them out of the design due to the cost.’
The Hydraquick range of double shut off couplings is available from leading national and independent H&V resellers across the UK that offer Hydraquip’s range of braided flexible hoses for building service applications.
