Smart Connects

Smart Connects provide fast, leak free connection for vacuum and pressure testing, fluid filling, or flushing applications. Seals are externally or internally made to smooth or threaded tubes of all materials. Compressed air activates seals for full-flow testing with air, gas, or liquid. Seal automation accommodates high volume production testing. Seals are made even over threaded, rough,and oily surfaces.

External sealing on tubes from vacuum to 500 psi. Internal sealing in tubes from vacuum to 120 psi. Models are available for tube outside diameters from 0.433” to 6.520”. Models for Internal Sealing are available for inside tube diameters from 0.310” to 3.005”. O-ring or rubber washer seals are available. Operating temperature range with buna-n o-ring seal: -40°F to +250°F.

Applications

Smart Connects are widely used for adapting and connecting pressure and vacuum lines to tanks, drums, pumps, filters, valves, and heat exchangers. They are also used in automatic leak testing, air conditioning, medical components, and plastic bottles. Finally, they are used for pick and place parts and for delicate robotic handling of materials.
