  • BM3 PLATE SERIES

    The BM3 Series of Multi-Coupling Plates allows the simultaneous couple and uncouple of two large diameter hydraulic lines with a single, simple movement requiring very little force. The system eliminates crossing of lines, reducing downtime and insuring couplers are fully connected. The auto-locking system insures that lines are connected safely and provides secondary retention of the connection.

  • FAP FAPZ SERIES

    FAP is the flat face coupling series to assemble on multicoupling plates. They are manufactured in high resistance carbon steel with zinc plated surface treatment. The internal valve system and the flat face valve allow connection of the coupling safely even in presence of high internal residual pressure and at the same time avoiding fluid loss. “FAP-P” couplings are locked on the plates by simple snap rings.

    FAP-Z is the flat face coupling series to assemble on multicoupling plates. They are manufactured in high resistance carbon steel. The internal valve system and the flat face valve allow connection of the coupling safely even in presence of high internal residual pressure and at the same time avoiding fluid loss. The couplings are locked on the plates by threaded sleeve and anti-unscrewing snap rings. This locking system makes “FAP-Z” couplings suitable for impulse pressure applications.
