A Guide for the Selection of Quick-Disconnect Couplings for Aerospace Fluid Systems
The factors involved in the selection of a quick-disconnect are grouped into the following classifications for the purpose of discussion: a. functional considerations; b. weight considerations; c. environmental performance factors; d. end fitting types; and e. additional considerations.<p>A quick-disconnect coupling as used in this AIR is one that can be rapidly and repetitively connected and disconnected without excessive fluid loss.<p>The relative importance of the design factors depends upon the fluid medium of the particular system in which quick-disconnect is to be used. The effect of the fluid media on each factor is discussed in this report where applicable.<p>The purpose of this AIR is to guide users in the proper selection of quick-disconnect couplings for their specific application in fluid systems.
