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

CHALLENGE

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 for 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.
