Threaded closure locks automatically when nut detent mechanism engages the detents along the face of the body. Assembly and disassembly are performed by hand without tools.
A "winged" retainer provides a tactile and a visual verification that the retainers have been properly installed.
Meets Military Requirements
Coupling design has been qualified to all applicable military specification requirements for flexible fuel coupling systems with service pressures of 230 PSIG (1.5 and 2.0 inch sizes) and temperatures from -65°F to 300°F (Other sizes are rated at 125 PSIG).
Electrical bonding to class "S" of MIL-B-5087B is automatically provided when the coupling is assembled.
Axial adjustment is 0.2" nominal; angular misalignment is ±4° for full coupling.
The coupling flanges are mechanically attached (swaged or welded) to tube ends. Information about tooling and installation procedure is available from Hydraflow upon request.
The 18J02 coupling is non-captive; it can be installed over flanges or pump ends with machined-on flanges.
