We received a warm greeting to all our readers who once again visit the MaxipressTec Blog to know in detail the information we offer every week on each and every one of the products and services we offer in this successful carving international company. On this occasion, our article will focus on fast high pressure couplings. We hope that the information that we will present below will be very useful and help you solve all those questions that you have raised through our different communication channels and our social networks.

The first thing you should know is that at MaxipressTec our team of specialized engineers has worked constantly to solve all the problems of high pressure of customers in Mexico. Thanks to the extensive experience we have in our successful company of international presence, it is very important to say that we have managed to develop innovative high pressure quick couplings, which will allow people to reduce, significantly, the assembly times of the pressure pumping systems. It is also very important that you know that our extensive experience has allowed us to understand, in detail, the needs of customers, including those of the most demanding requirements.

Under this logic, we have understood that, first of all, the businessmen or those in charge of the industry seek to reduce the assembly time of the pressure pumps, so that our team managed to develop the fast couplings, which have been shown to decrease in a significant times of connection and disconnection of hydraulic circuits, thus increasing productivity and safety, a very important element when we talk about high pressure pumps. Under this logic, in the following lines we will inform you about some of the most important security measures that you, dear readers, can take as a guide to avoid accidents that may cause irreparable consequences:

  1. The products you choose should correspond to the nominal pressures required.
  2. All components must be original.
  3. High pressure hoses must come with a test certificate.
  4. Use the correct tightening torque.
  5. Inspect the outer cover of the hose for damage.

The fast high-pressure couplings are completely safe and have mechanisms that prevent accidental disconnections, thus avoiding many accidents, as studies claim that this is one of the most common causes of these catastrophes. Likewise, the couplings of MaxipressTec are manufactured with the best materials and under the strictest production processes that are now known throughout the world, thus providing greater safety to users of this type of high pressure pumps.

The fast couplings are classified based on the connection method and the operating pressure. This way, in the following list we will tell you in detail what are the types of couplings that we have in MaxipressTec:

  • Couplers for 1000 bar connection push to connect.
  • Couplers for 800 bar with flat face design.
  • Couplers for 1500 bar push connection to connect.
  • Couplers for 2000 bar push connection to connect.
  • Couplers for 2500 bar push connection to connect.
  • Quick couplings for 3000 bar push connection to connect.
  • Couplings for 700 bar threaded connection.

The available threads of these quick couplings are:

  • High Pressure or HP thread (1/4, 3/8, 9/16).
  • Medium Pressure or MP (1/4, 3/8, 9/16, ¾ and 1).
  • NPT threads (1/8, 1/4, 3/8, 1/2).
  • Type M threads (M9, M12 and M16).
  • JIC threads (1/4, 3/8 and ½).
  • BSPP thread (1/8, ¼, 3/8).
  • BSPT thread (1/4, 3/8).

The quick couplings are manufactured in the following materials, which, according to the specialists, are the most suitable to provide security to companies and industries. However, at MaxipressTec we always seek, first of all, to satisfy the needs of each and every one of our customers, so we also have the option of making couplings with other materials and with special alloys; all this, under the logic that the client is completely satisfied and that their work processes are carried out in the best way:

  • 316 stainless steel.
  • Galvanized hardened steel.
  • Zinc plated steel.

These couplings have the option to be supplied with valve or without valve, depending on your application. Also, it is necessary to comment that they have an excellent performance and an excellent flow as well as a long useful life, thus benefiting the work done by the high pressure pumps and granting them a much longer lifetime that will allow them to save money in equipment maintenance.

Among the most frequent applications where we can locate them are:

  • Gas applications.
  • Turbines.
  • Naval applications.
  • Underwater.
  • Rescue tools.
  • Torque and bolt tension.
  • Wind turbines.
  • Hydraulic jacks.

As you can see, at MaxipressTec we have a wide range of quick couplings, so if you want to know more about the wide range of products that we offer to meet your needs, you must contact our consultants in MaxipressTec, who will advise you with the cordiality and respect you deserve.
