Non-spill quick disconnect couplings are designed to reduce spillage to near zero whenever they’re disconnected. They were originally designed as heavy-duty fittings for high-pressure, industrial hydraulic applications. But as more low-pressure uses for non-spill connectors emerged, it became clear that high-pressure fittings were over-engineered and too costly for connecting flexible, semi-rigid and reinforced tubing in low-pressure applications.
Today, a new category of couplings has evolved. It consists of low-pressure, small footprint thermoplastic and metal fittings that maintain non-spill performance characteristics. They are used for a variety of low pressure, fluid-handling applications that require minimal spillage, such as liquid cooling in medical devices and thermal management of electronics in HPC and data centers. There are six beneficial traits of low-pressure, non-spill fittings including:
- The inclusion of non-spill, flush-faced valves
- The use of engineered polymers for reduced weight and high strength
- Design features that deliver low air inclusion and minimal pressure drop
