Increased performance and no more oil leaks for Reinhard Recycling after installing CEJN TLX
Reinhard Recycling had a problem with oil leaks when disconnecting their couplings from the hydraulic attachments. They were recommended CEJN TLX, a super-duty coupling solution designed to work with the greatest surge flows and toughest pressure impulses. Now TLX has been installed on all their machines and attachments, making everyday work easier and safer for the operators.
High surge flows are the most common reason for the failure of quick-connect couplings in heavy-duty applications. The surge flows can be several times greater than the ordinary flow rate in the machine, causing seal failures and internal damage that results in leakages and machine downtime. Reinhard Recycling, a Swiss recycling company, has experienced this. “With our previous coupling solution, one decilitre of oil was spilled at each disconnect,” says Fritz Blaser, co-owner of Reinhard Recycling.
“We’ve been using CEJN TLX 907 for around three years now and have never had any problems”

Designed to withstand the highest surge flows
Reinhard Recycling was founded in 1920 and recycles materials of many different kinds. There is high demand for their machinery, hydraulic attachments and components, which also makes high demands of their suppliers. After experiencing severe oil losses when disconnecting the hydraulic attachments, they turned to CEJN. “We’ve been using CEJN TLX 907 for around three years now and have never had any problems,” says Fritz Blaser.
Couplings not made to withstand thougher surge flows will, apart from oil leakages, break more easily and might cause unintentional disconnections. Fritz Blaser points out that before CEJN TLX was installed, the couplings would too often disconnect and/or break down, resulting in time-consuming standstills and maintenance work. “Since the implementation of CEJN TLX, we’ve seen a great increase in work performance and flow rate.”
Reinhard Recycling uses CEJN TLX for increased performance and to ensure no oil spill during disconnection.
“Since the installation of CEJN TLX, we have increased the performance and have no more oil leaks or unintended disconnections”
High demands of suppliers
Customer satisfaction and the ability to serve the customer in the best possible way are of the highest priority for Reinhard Recycling. The work at the station therefore needs to run smoothly. High requirements are set for the employees who handle and need to understand the machines and their attachments. “Using high-quality couplings, the operators can focus on their job without worrying about leakages or standstills due to unintentional disconnections,” Fritz Blaser points out.
The same demands apply to their suppliers. “We count on our suppliers to give us the service and help we might need,” Fritz Blaser concludes.
This is CEJN TLX
CEJN TLX is a hydraulic Flat-Face Twist Lock Couplings made for the toughest construction and demolition applications. This super-duty quick connect coupling is designed to work with the highest surge flows and the toughest pressure impulses. It is made of high alloy steel and critical components are hardened for maximum performance.
The surface treatment is Zinc-Nickel which is by far the best surface treatment of steel available. The TLX is a spill-free coupling and fully in line with CEJN’s ambition to supply products for clean and leak-free hydraulic systems. The Series is available in sizes from ⅜” to 1 ½” to cover most applications.
