Six-page brochure highlight’s Faster’s array of fitting solutions for the construction equipment sector, including standard (VVS steel, OGV), high pressure (PVVM, FFHP), multi-utility vehicles (FFH, 3FFH, FSH), heavy duty (FSW swivel, FHV) styles. It also covers the company’s Multifaster line, including 2P608. PH408 and SLIDE family of products.
Accessories are offered for dust protection and castings featuring flat-face FHV couplings 1/2- or 3/4-in. in the same housing for higher flow requirements.
These products work well with a wide range of products such as skid steer and multi-utilities. For typical applications in the construction equipment market, quick-release couplings are required to work in dusty environments, with sand, mud and other dirt particles present in the air.
Under these conditions, seals play a crucial role; they need to have a specifically studied profile and they have to be made of particular polymers, able to suffer deterioration and wear of the heavy work conditions.
Particularly suited for this application, flat-face couplings, thanks to their shape, are characterized by easy-to-clean faces, strong connection without spillage and a coating very resistant to corrosion.
