Quick Release Couplings
We are a leading supplier of hydraulic and pneumatic quick release couplings, and stock a vast variety of fittings within this range. Quick Release Couplings are sometimes referred to as Quick Disconnects (QD's) or Quick Connects and are designed for fast, tool-free, connections and disconnections of hose and pipelines. Quick Release couplings replace laborious threaded and flanged connections, saving time and money and typically incorporate valves, which self seal on disconnection preventing costly spillage of fluid or gas. Various materials, styles and features are available, including single shut off and ‘straight through’ versions.

Where and When are Quick Release Couplings Used?
QD couplings are commonly found in hydraulic, pneumatic, agricultural, medical, construction, food processing, transportation and medical industries. Applications range from hydraulic and fuel systems, to cooling, test rigs, air tools and irrigation.
Using a quick release coupling will allow users to speed up system inspection and maintenance procedures without having to vent hydraulic systems. Self-sealing couplings mean that operatives can avoid the need for re-priming or bleeding air from closed lines, saving time and also offering a more cost effective solution. Quick connect couplings are also used in areas of frequent disassembly, repair, or to isolate components or sub-systems for troubleshooting.
Available materials include corrosion resistant steel, stainless steel, brass, and aluminium and can support vacuums and high pressures.
We also stock dust caps and plugs to help keep system clean and prevent damage to coupling sealing surfaces.
