Movie: TLX – The hydraulic super duty connector
The most common reason for failure of screw-to-connect couplings in heavy duty applications is high surge flow. For example, when a crusher is used on concrete, it builds up high pressure just before it bites through the material and an extreme surge flow occurs at the moment it bites through. This surge flow can be several times greater than the ordinary flow rate through the machine and is a frequent cause of coupling failures. The solution so far has been to use bulky, oversized couplings at a much higher cost. The new solution is CEJN’s TLX hydraulic coupling series.
