Operators of drilling, excavating and Earth moving machinery require high performance, efficient equipment which provides safety to workers. These two objectives are linked together as maintaining your equipment for efficient performance also prevents malfunctions and harmful accidents. In industry sectors such as Earth moving and Oil and Gas, safety takes precedence over quickness, which can lead to inefficient operations where multiple hydraulic lines are used.

Industry leaders are continually searching for ways to improve the efficiency of quick connect and disconnect applications where multiple hydraulic lines are utilized, while maintaining stringent safety standards. Safe and efficient operations are mandatory in Earth moving or Oil and Gas operations where drills and excavators require quick change of attachments and auxiliary equipment.

How can we improve the efficiency of quick connect and disconnect operations of multiple lines while maintaining safety standards?  Multicoupling systems provide hydraulic solutions where multiple lines are used with easy quick connect and disconnect of multiple lines at once.

Quick Connect and Disconnect Multiple Lines at Once

Multicoupling plates allow for the quick connect and disconnect of multiple lines with one simple, single movement. Multicoupling systems provide many benefits which include:

  • Easily quick connect male to female couplers in applications with high resistance with leak-free connections
  • Multi-couplers with locking systems prevent unwanted disconnection and improve total safety
  • Advanced technical design provides quick and easy connection or disconnection of multiple lines with one simple movement

Multicoupling experts at Stucchi have designed multi-coupler plates and solutions which include cam mechanisms, flat face valves and special seals to improve quick connect processes. Advanced design and engineering provide leak free quick connect solutions to many applications which prevent contamination and are easy to clean and maintain. Multicoupling systems are proven to deliver these advantages and many others which improve safety and efficiency.

Multi-coupler plates quick connect multiple lines at once by utilizing a fixed plate with a mobile plate, eliminating crossing of lines. Easily quick connect and disconnect many lines at once, even in processes with trapped or residual pressure. Multicoupling systems provide significant advantages to many Earth moving and Oil and Gas applications, improving safety, efficiency, productivity and profitability.
