Repetitive leak testing of thousands of parts can be very hard on operators hands and wrists. To reduce the chance of carpal tunnel syndrome or other injury during static or dynamic testing of high pressure hydraulic components, positive clamp lever action eliminates the twisting and turning required when using hands or a wrench.
The split collet design locks quickly and securely in female threads, providing a safer and cleaner testing process for filling, evacuating, and pressure-test sealing. The connector instantly grips and seals up to 5,000 psi, for water dunk, pressure decay, or mass spectrometer testing applications.
