A QUICK connector for filling and testing of gas bottles with residual pressure valves is now available from WEH GmbH of Germany, through Romheld Australia .
The connector type TW102 is actuated with a hand lever. The integrated pin opens the residual pressure valve and filling with oxygen or other media can start.
Type TW102 is available with or without swivel joint with a pressure rating of 200 or 300 bar.
Pressure-tight connections can be established in seconds with WEH connectors as they are simply snapped into position on the gas bottle without the need for screwed connections, thus saving time and reducing the potential of stress injuries caused by inflammation of tendons and abrasion of joints.
Connections are made using WEH's patented collapsible jaw design to achieve an instant, leak-tight seal without the use of spanners, tools or sealing tape, etc.
WEH connectors can be used for filling, testing and transporting of gas bottles. They are available for internal and external threads as a bow-type connector, and are applicable for most known gases including nitrogen, oxygen, rare gases, gas mixtures, Co2, propane-butane, Freon, acetylene, acetone for pressure ranges up to 350 bar.
In addition to the type TW102, WEH manufactures a complete series of quick connectors that have broad application in testing of cylinders, valves, pressure vessels, hoses, fittings, and other components, that must meet specified pressure or leakage criteria.
Moreover, WEH offers an extensive standard product range for quick connectors as well as individual solutions tailored to customer requirements.
