Clean break quick coupling system: tool change without dripping

Non-squirting and easy disconnection

(PresseBox) (Haan, ) A clean break quick coupling system of WALTHER-PRÄZISION ensures that in the tool making workshop of Voestalpine Polynorm the cooling water hydraulic system can be disconnected easily without squirt, even under residual pressure.

Requirement: The tool manufacturer voestalpine Polynorm GmbH & Co. KG in Schwäbisch-Gmünd planned to equip its tool cooling circuits with a mono coupling system that guarantees a high flow rate with a nominal size of 80 mm and which in addition can be disconnected against residual pressures of approx. 3 bar without leakage.

WALTHER-PRÄZISION in Haan (Rhineland) supplied ten non-squirting clean break couplings of series CN to Schwäbisch-Gmünd, which already had proved to be a non-dripping coupling system in the process industry. Martin Bauer, shell construction manager at voestalpine Polynorm: "Compared to the competitors the clean break coupling type CN-080 has a higher flow rate, is leak-free during disconnection and can easily be handled by means of a handwheel."
