Quik Lok - Safety Coupler
Visit our stand to witness the worldwide release of the “Quik Lok” brand safety coupler that improves safety and productivity in your workplace.
Quik Lok is a new Australian owned business that has designed and manufactured a world first improvement to current compressed air connection systems.
Have you ever experienced injury in the workplace when using the standard “claw” style coupler? Standard claw couplers are made by Atlas Copco, Minsup, Surefit, Minquip or Dixon. Injuries result from hose whip, incorrect connection or disconnection, inability to release trapped pressure, lack of safety clips and shortcuts to the correct operating procedures.
Did you know that the most significant single cause of hearing loss in Australia is exposure to loud noise which accounts for 37% of all injuries that costs Australia almost $12 billion per year? #
Did you know that un-diffused release of compressed air causes permanent hearing loss?
The answer will be provided by this new valve design.
The Quik Lok safety coupler provides unsurpassed security compared to conventional claw couplers with the added benefit of an integrated diffuser controlling the release of trapped pressure. An anti-whip valve protects the operator from injury whilst the sleeve valve provides air control at your fingertips “like a trigger on the end of your garden hose”.
This safety coupler valve has applications in all heavy industry including underground and surface mining, civil construction, petro-chemical processing, heavy equipment manufacturing and energy generation.
The Quik Lok safety coupler eliminates the risk of human error and injury whilst increasing productivity in your workplace.
