ISO 16028 Flat Face Hydraulic Couplers

flat face couplersISO 16028 sets the International Standards for quick coupling interchangeability, detailing the requirements for the performance of flat or flush face quick couplings used within a pressure of 20 MPa to 31.5 MPa. ISO 16028 does not include couplings which connect or disconnect under high pressure. The A Premier Series of flat face couplings offers superior, no-leak performance to a wide range of industrial uses.

A Premier Series ISO 16028 Flat Face Couplers

The A Premier Series of flat face couplers meets all ISO 16028 interchange specifications with superior flow characteristics over comparable products. The A Premier Series avoids fluid loss during quick connect or disconnect processes and limits contamination in hydraulic circuits. This flat face coupling is designed specifically for leak free performance with a non-spill design suitable for many applications.

ISO 16028 Couplers for Demanding Industrial Applications

The A Premier flat face 16028 couplers are ideal in a wide range of demanding industrial uses such as:

  • Oil and gas exploration
  • Agricultural equipment
  • Industrial hydraulic connections
  • Construction
  • Mobile equipment
  • and many others

This flat face coupling series offers improved operation under pressure with reliable performance in agricultural equipment with high pressure impulses and general industrial use. The A Premier series offers environmental protection against spills and safety to workers with durable connections you can rely on. Reduce equipment downtime while improving productivity with reliable connections that meet your specifications.

A Premier Series Flat Face Coupling Specifications

The A Premier series of flat face couplings offers a modular design for multiple port options which provides flexibility to enhance a multitude of configurations. This reliable coupling features a safety locking system to prevent accidental disconnection and a special U design engineered in PTFE for maximum resistance to extrusion. Sizes range from 1/8” through 1 ½” with ISO 16028 interchangeability and port options including: SAE, JIC, NPT, ORFS, DIN, BSP.

The hardened carbon steel construction supports operations with a working pressure of 27 to 42 MPa and a psi range of 3915 – 6090 with 12 to 20 balls to reduce brinelling. The A Premier International Series provides the same superior flow characteristics, ratings for higher pressure and lower pressure drop features. The International ISO 16028 series provides convenient port configurations in German (DIN) or British (BSP).

FIRG Series ISO 16028 Flat Face Coupler

The FIRG Series is the original ISO 16028 interchangeable coupling which never fails to offer reliable, long lasting performance with competitive pricing. The FIRG flat face series is ideal in many applications which require a reduction or elimination of contamination of hydraulic circuits and fluid loss. The FIRG series of flat face couplers can be found in many industrial applications including:

General Industrial Applications

The FIRG Series features an integrated sealing mechanism which reduces wear due to pressure impulses and the weight of hydraulic hoses. FIRG couplings range in size from ¼” to 2”, with multiple port options including SAE, NPT and BSP, interchangeable with ISO 16028. This flat face quick connect coupling series meet tight tolerance to ensure equal loading with a working pressure of 20 to 30 MPa and 2900 to 4350 psi. The non-spill design prevents fluid loss during quick connect and disconnect with minimal air inclusion.

Additional engineering features include flat face valves with a safety lock to prevent unwanted disconnection, PTFE U seals for maximum resistance to extrusion and a hardened surface area with locking balls to reduce brinelling.
