Contamine-sur-Arve, France, 7. February 2020 - Parker Hannifin, the global leader in motion control technologies, has introduced a new series of safety couplings for compressed air systems. The new KP series is an ergonomic push-button, self-venting coupler with an intuitive, easy-to-use design.
The KP series covers all European market requirements by including all commercially available profiles such as ISO C, ISO B and EURO.
Occupational safety is gaining increased importance in the market, and the ISO 4414 compliant KP series is well-aligned to these requirements. The coupling has a two-step operation: with the first operation of the button, the compressed air on the plug side is vented. The second press releases the connector profile; this prevents so-called whiplash effect.
The KP series complements Parker’s existing range of vented couplings and underlines the company’s position as a leader in the field of safety couplings.
