PROBLEM:

HEALTH & SAFETY

When a customer wanted to replace their leaking flat faced couplers, we asked about their entire process—where & how the coupler was being used and how it interfaced within the process—revealing that it was also creating an operator safety concern, exposure to stored energy.

CHALLENGE:

IMPROVE SAFETY AS WELL AS PREVENT LEAKS

A large service provider to the oil & gas industry needed to avoid potential lockout/tagout incidents and negative environmental impact that could be caused by leakage of hydraulic fluids.

SOLUTION:

VEP SERIES THREADED FLAT FACE COUPLING

The VEP series threaded flat face coupling provided a leak-free, safe, connect-under-pressure solution. The patented internal valve allows connection and disconnection with high residual pressure and the flat face design avoids loss of hydraulic fluid.

RESULTS:

ELIMINATED LEAKS AND WORKPLACE INJURIES

The connection solution eliminated reportable workplace incidents & injuries in their hydraulic line connection/disconnection process and achieved zero leakage/environmental impact.
