Quick couplings, stainless steel

GEKA® plus quick couplings, stainless steel

Progress through innovation. The new GEKA plus quick coupling now also in chromium steel.

Since the late summer of 2000, KARASTO has been available in 1/2″, 3/4″ and 1” (hose pieces, threaded pieces with internal and external threads, dummy couplings). This represents a logical addition to the new GEKA family.

  • In terms of pressure and vacuum resistance, the GEKA plus quick coupling offers an improvement in performance of 100% compared to the previous GEKA coupling and its copies. Stainless steel has a very wide range of applications due to its favourable properties. Chromium steel is used, for example, in the chemical, food processing, water management, automobile, shipping, aviation and aerospace industry, as well as in the application of fertilisers in agriculture. It opens up interesting areas of application and makes the GEKA plus quick coupling the universal coupling par excellence.
  • The new GEKA plus quick coupling is made from precision-cast chromium steel using the lost wax method.
  • The newly developed high-performance O-ring in FKM (fluoridised rubber) in accordance with ISO DIN 1629 is used as a series-produced seal. Sealing rings made from NBR and NR (food-resistant) and EPDM are of course also available, meaning that a wide range of liquid and gaseous media can be covered. Since May 2003, the GEKA plus quick coupling has also been available with a KTW-approved seal. The test results according to DVGW W270 have been available since February 2004. This innovation represents an important contribution to the implementation of the new drinking water regulation.
  • The range is rounded off by stainless steel ball valves and stainless steel fittings.
