Stauff test couplings, also known as test points, diagnostic couplings, or pressure test connectors, are specialized fittings used in hydraulic systems for pressure testing and diagnostics. These couplings provide a quick and secure connection point for pressure gauges, transducers, or other diagnostic equipment, allowing for accurate monitoring and measurement of hydraulic systems.
Here are some key features of Stauff test couplings:
Design: Stauff test couplings feature a self-sealing mechanism that minimizes fluid loss when connecting or disconnecting the diagnostic equipment. They are available in various sizes and configurations to adapt to many different hydraulic systems.
Pressure Testing: These couplings are primarily used for pressure testing hydraulic systems. By connecting a pressure gauge or transducer to the test coupling, operators can accurately measure the system's pressure during operation. This helps in identifying any pressure fluctuations, leaks, or other potential issues.
Easy Installation: Stauff test couplings are designed for quick and simple installation. The test point adapters are available in a variety of sizes and connection styles so they can be easily tied into your hydraulic system. The test point couplings thread onto the adapters by hand. Or the Test 10 series connected using a simple snap-in mechanism. Completely eliminating the need for complex tools after the initial installation. This ease of use ensures quick reading and results during diagnostic processes.
Durability and Compatibility: Stauff test couplings are made from high-quality materials, such as plated steel or stainless steel, ensuring their durability, longevity, and resistance to hydraulic fluids. They are also designed to be compatible with industry-standard test connectors, making them compatible a wide range of hydraulic systems.
Safety Considerations: When using Stauff test couplings, it's important to follow safety guidelines to prevent accidents or injuries. Stauff’s coupling has integrated poppet valves that open only when fully connected to allow for safe connection and disconnection with minimal fluid loss.
In summary, Stauff test couplings are the industry standard for testing and sampling hydraulic systems. They provide a quick and secure connection point for pressure gauges, transducers, or other diagnostic equipment, allowing technicians to measure pressure, detect potential issues, and conduct comprehensive system analysis.
