Flat face hydraulic quick couplers which provide leak free, reliable connections are required in many industries across a wide range of applications and uses. Flat face or flush face couplers are used in many demanding applications which put pressure and environmental strains on equipment and components. Providing reliable connections which prevent leaks is critical to maintaining equipment uptime and protecting against environmental leaks.
Reliable flat face couplers are utilized in a wide range of applications including:
Agricultural equipment – tractors, bobcats and agricultural equipment require quick connect couplings which stand up to harsh environmental elements
Mobile equipment – maintaining leak free connections while on the road is critical to preventing environmental leaks and keeping your equipment moving
Industrial uses – manufacturers rely upon their equipment to meet production demands with no time to waste with equipment down time to replace faulty components. Reliable leak free connections improve equipment uptime and production schedules
Oil and Gas – the oil and gas industry requires reliable leak free quick couplers to stand up to harsh environments and pressurized applications. Maintaining leak free connections is critical for environmental protection as well as the safety of all workers
Choosing the right flat face hydraulic quick coupler is a big decision as these small components hold a big responsibility to maintain equipment performance and production goals. Make sure that you choose reliable, leak free quick couplers which are proven to stand up to industrial demands. Working with an experienced quick coupling manufacturer who provides technical support with process analysis helps to ensure your connections will not fail.
Stucchi Offers Proven Flat Face Hydraulic Quick Couplers

We offer process analysis studies and custom designed quick coupler solutions to meet your specific needs. Stucchi has nearly 60 years in business solving quick connect issues across a wide range of industrial uses, improving equipment uptime and safety while preventing contamination with leak free performance.
Our wide selection of flat face couplings include the following:
A Premier – this ISO 16028 interchange coupler offers improved pressure ratings with exceptional flow characteristics, providing a no-spill designs which prevents fluid loss during quick connect and disconnect procedures. Sizes range from 1/8” through 1 ½ “ with a working pressure of 27-42 MPa/3915-6090 psi.
FIRG – interchangeable ISO 16028 coupler which provides long lasting performance. Includes an integrated sealing mechanisms which reduces premature wear and tear from pressure impulses. Sizes range from ¼” to 2”, with working pressure from 20 – 30 MPa/2900-4350 psi.
APM – offers connection solutions where high residual pressure exists or where trapped fluid causes pressure and thermal expansion. Designed to relieve pressure within the coupler without leaking any fluid. Available in sizes from 3/8” to 1 ½”, with connect and disconnect up to 30 MPa/4350 psi residual pressure.
A-HD – internal valving system protects the environment with leak free connections while addressing residual pressure from trapped fluid or thermal expansion. Available in sizes from 3/8” to ½” and connection pressure up to 1595 psi.
PUSH PULL – this push/pull coupler (PPC) is designed on the platform of the A Premier with breakaway capabilities which engage when unintentionally left coupled to prevent damage and leaks. The clamping fixture is mounted to the structure, allowing the PPC coupler to break away when pulled apart in line with the coupler. Use the APM series nipple with this series for mobile applications.
FIRGQ – this flat face hydraulic quick coupler series utilizes QPQ plating technology which provides superior resistance to corrosion over zinc plating in many applications. The FIRGQ is available with various seals for fluid compatibility and temperatures, while offering a lower cost alternative to stainless steel couplers. Sizes range from ¼” to 2” with a working pressure of 20-30 MPa/2900-4350 psi.
FL – this ISO 16028 interchangeable flat face quick coupler is designed for high resistance to corrosion with exceptional fatigue life manufactured with 316 stainless steel. The FL quick coupler comes with standard Viton/Fluorocarbon seals with additional materials available for various temperatures and fluids. Available in sizes from ¼” to 2” with working pressure of 15-35 MPa/2175-5075 psi.
A-ZN – provides high corrosion resistance with specialized plating which exceeds the ISO salt spray test, with the ZN version exceeding 1000 hours before red spotting appears. Sizes range from 3/8” to 5/8”, this quick coupler exceeds the impulse ISOA-7241 test and is manufactured with hardened steel and 12 to 20 balls to reduce brinelling.
