Meets Military/Commercial Requirements
Coupling design has been qualified to all applicable military specification requirements for flexible fuel coupling systems with service pressures of 125 PSIG (operating, 250 PSIG (proof), and 375 PSIG (burst), temperatures from -65°F to 450°F and side loads for rotor craft.
Electrical bonding to class "S" of MIL-B-5087B is automatically provided when the coupling is assembled.
Axial adjustment is 0.28" nominal; angular misalignment is ±4° for full coupling.
The coupling flanges are mechanically attached (swaged or welded) to tube ends. Information about tooling and installation procedure is available from Hydraflow upon request.
The coupling is non-captive; it can be installed over flanges or pump ends with machined-on flanges.
