High-Pressure Coupling

p-GatesAn alternative to staple-lock couplings, the iLok™ couplings can be connected to long-wall mining machinery in seconds and disconnected in under two minutes to save 90% of the labor hours required to move equipment from one coal seam to another. Workers disconnect the couplings by cutting and removing the cable lock and turning the swivel nut two-and-a-half times by hand, instead of prying staples loose with crowbars or hammering equipment. The couplings withstand high-impulse applications, release residual pressure away from workers during disconnection, and are compact and smooth to prevent sagging and abrasion.
