Meggitt self-sealing couplings are designed for use wherever it is necessary to connect and disconnect hoses and pipelines under pressure, quickly and without spillage. They are designed primarily for use in the petroleum and chemical industries where reliability and safety are of prime concern.
The operation is a single action, using a straight forward turning motion to connect the couplings and open a flow path. An initial push and turn action on the hose unit causes engagement with the tank unit, thus locking and sealing the two units together. Further rotation causes the internal valves to open, thereby allowing flow with minimum pressure drop. The connection and valve mechanism is interlocked such that the valve can only be opened by fully engaging and sealing the hose unit on its matching tank unit. On disconnection, the valves fully close before the couplings separate and spillage is therefore negligible.
