The Quick-test Connection Platform from Ralston Instruments is a universal pressure hose system engineered to facilitate fast, leak-free connections for pressure testing, calibration and leak testing.
The unique design of the hoses and adapters offers secure, time-saving connections — without the need for a wrench or thread tape — for low volume, high pressure connections to virtually any device being tested, Ralston Instruments says.
The hoses have a smaller inner diameter than most hoses, which makes them suitable for transmitting high pressure without wasting large amounts of compressed gas or fluid.
Made with a polyamide-reinforced inner core, units can twist and bend without losing volume across the hose, it adds.
Adapters that complement the hoses allow direct connection to male or female NPT, BSPP, tube fittings, metric, AN 37° Flare and CGA 580 fillings without any additional tools or thread sealant.
The adapters are said to also vent pressure while still connected, and because they eliminate the need for wrenching, the threads don’t wear out.
