Parker’s SCFF couplings avoid loss of fluid and help protect the environment

January 2021 Motion Control & Drives

Parker Hannifin has expanded its FlatFace offering with the SCFF series. These couplings offer users a number of benefits ranging from low-leakage decoupling to the avoidance of air entrapment during coupling. The couplings, which are tested in accordance with ISO 7241-2, are easy to clean and very flat.

Whether being used in mobile hydraulics, transport, or the oil and gas industry, SCFF couplings are resistant to vibrations and other forms of mechanical stress. The processes of coupling and decoupling are also fast and reliable: due to the inclusion of an ACME thread, no fluid escapes during these stages. The reliability of this system is enhanced by the swivel function together with the unique locking sleeve to avoid accidental disconnection.

SCFF plugs are available with a pressure eliminator. Thanks to this innovative technology, it is possible to connect couplings in the presence of accumulated or residual pressure without any problems. A miniature valve automatically relieves the pressure in the connecting phase.
