QUICK-release hydraulic couplings on agricultural equipment and related applications have historically enabled Faster Couplings to provide innovative solutions to meet this sector’s needs.
Hydrasales is the authorized distributor of Faster Couplings in Africa. Sales manager, Cheryl Johnson advised, “The Faster range is all-encompassing and offers a full range of products. The range includes quality hydraulic connections on tractors and harvesters on rear hydraulic lines and front loaders.” She continued; ”Faster Couplings systems and couplers work under extremely harsh conditions while achieving the highest levels of safety.”
The product range complies with the requisite ISO ratings and includes special and innovative solutions. The cast iron manifold block with quick release couplings screwed on is popular. A universal cast iron block is suitable for three different sizes and two interchangeable standards with integrated cartridges assisted with a lever. There are arrays of accessory solutions in rubber and plastic. To help protect the quick connect couplings while disconnected a rubber dust cap is available. There are modular plastic caps to collect spilt oil in dedicated bottles. The 3/8 inch break valve for trailers complies with the requirements of ISAO 5676 is a special flat-face which connects with a sleeve retraction. This does not connect or disconnect under pressure.
“The MultiFaster range is an excellent range for agricultural applications; this range allows for simultaneous connection of several lines and it allows for an efficient manner in which lines are disconnected. It also allows for a reduction in connection and disconnection time. This technology reduces the risk of line misalignment – an important safety feature” Cheryl Johnson says.
To facilitate flexibility, Faster Couplings allows designers the opportunity to “play” with the configuration during design time. A MultiFaster Configurator can be found on Faster’s website: https://www.fastercouplings.com/multifaster/configurator.
These simple steps allow for any designer to configure his own Multifaster:
Select- Simply insert your general parameters, select the plate, select the lever and every single coupling, in the position you want it to be.
View – Follow a few easy steps to personalise your very own MultiFaster.
Confirm – Save the configuration that has been personalised with the required parameters. Contact Hydrasales with the desired configuration and your design will be confirmed with Faster Couplings.
The configurator captures information such as application, maximum flow rates, the number of hydraulic lines required to be connected, multi grease, the electrical lines and the plate proposed.
Hydrasales carries a range of standard MultiFasters for the African market and is in a position to promptly supply customer’s requests.. Hydrasales stocks an extensive range of ball type, pin type and flat face couplings for agricultural, construction and trucking solutions.
