Quick disconnect fittings, also called “quick release couplings,” are used to provide fast connections and disconnections between fluid transfer lines. Quick disconnects are generally operated by hand, and can be used to replace threaded or flanged connections that require wrenches.
There are a wide variety of sizes and styles of quick disconnect fittings currently available. Quick disconnects are useful in broad range of applications, from medical to food service to underwater drilling and more.
Quick disconnects are frequently equipped with self-sealing valves which will, upon disconnection, automatically contain any fluid in the fluid line.
