PCL standard quick release couplings for compressed air – 'Airflow'. Designed and manufactured in the UK to the highest standards, this is the original quick release coupling whose design has been improved and developed over 50 years.
This range is very popular and widely used in the garage and automotive sectors as well as a wide range of manufacturing and processing industry.
Nominal bore size is 4.8mm and the maximum flow rate of this series is 43 cfm.
The Airflow coupling is designed for fixed installations. The Vertex coupling (see related products section) has a shoulder next to the sleeve which helps to prevent accidental disconnection in trailing hose situations.
To connect simply push the plug into the coupling. To disconnect pull back the sleeve on the coupling.
This coupling is a 'single shut off' type which means that when the coupling and plug are separated the air in the plug side is vented to atmosphere. The coupling should always be fitted on the upstream side of the air flow.
The coupling and adaptors (or plugs or probes) are available with BSP taper male or female parallel threads or with a hosetail.
Variations available on request:
Vertex – PCL Standard couplings for trailing hoses (see related products)
Safeflow – PCL Standard safety couplings (see related products)
The flow rate stated is for a pressure drop of 0.5 bar.
