An American company, specialist in refueling and transfer technology of fluids and gases, has developed a revolutionary coupling that greatly improves handling time and safety in hose loading and unloading processes.
Until now, camlock-type couplings have incorporated safety handles that require the use of both hands for closing and opening. With very heavy hoses, it is even necessary to rest this on the floor of on the knee of the operator to proceed. The finding lacks these uncomfortable handles and incorporates a new system of pressure tonges, thanks to which it is enough to insert the mouth of the male coupling into the female and push slightly; their tabs are automatically engaged.

Tests related to hose couplings can be carried out in specialized climatic chamber to check their characteristics.
