Parker general purpose hydraulic couplings are used across the spectrum of hydraulic applications. These Double Shut-Off couplings can be found anywhere that fluid transfer lines need to be connected and disconnected for operation or maintenance of equipment, and a loss of fluid is undesirable.

Primarily used with hydraulic fluid, general purpose Double Shut-Off couplings are also used with chemicals, water, steam, and some gases.

Protective dust plugs and caps play a crucial role in the life of a quick coupling and no purchase of a hydraulic quick coupling is complete without the selection of an appropriate dust plug and cap. See pages noted in Table of Contents for dust plugs and caps for the Parker full line of hydraulic couplings.

QC Selection Tips

When ordering quick couplers, consider the following:

  • Functional requirements of the coupling
  • Maximum working pressure of the application
  • Coupler seal and body material compatibility with the system’s fluid
  • Is the application static or dynamic?
  • Size of coupler/hose
  • Maximum allowable pressure drop
  • Requirement to connect and disconnect under pressure
  • Media temperature
  • Ambient temperature
  • End configuration requirements
  • Need for industrial interchange coupler
  • Concerns about air inclusion and fluid loss
