Stucchi Inc. recently introduced a new multi-coupling plate technology, the BM3 multi-coupling plate which is designed to allow operators to simultaneously connect and disconnect large diameter (1 1/2-in.) lines that contain residual pressure. This reduces operator error and improves KPIs (key performance indicators), saving companies time and money in the field. Ideal equipment applications for the BM3 multi-coupling plate technology include oil and gas, industrial, mining, construction, pile driving, crane equipment and more.
The BM3 simultaneously connects and disconnects two 1 1/2-in. lines, with residual pressure up to 3,625 psi, and a working pressure of 5,100 psi, creating a complete leak-free connection. BM3 multi-coupling plate technology offers users:
- Improved safety by managing stored energy in circuit, reducing danger to operator
- Increased efficiency and reduced downtime, ensuring complete leak-free connection with no crossing of lines
- Greater productivity with less human error, equaling less catastrophic pump or motor failure
- Simple single motion connection with auto locking system
