Pirtek Now Offers Hydraulic Quick-Coupler Blocks with Relief Valve
Pirtek USA, Rocklege, Fla., now offers pre-assembled hydraulic valve blocks with quick disconnect couplings and a pressure relief valve. Available in 1/2”, 5/8” and 3/4” sizes, the easy-to-install valve block allows operators to safely relieve residual hydraulic pressure before connecting or disconnecting attachments from the quick couplers. The standard ISO flat-face quick-disconnect couplings are compatible with most hydraulically powered attachments. The pressure relief valve’s red cap makes the valve highly visible. To relieve residual pressure before attaching or detaching a hydraulic tool to the valve block’s quick couplers, the operator simply pulls out the red-capped relief controller, and then moves it up and down to relieve pressure through a case drain line back to the hydraulic tank.
