WEH® Connector TW18P for testing of components with male thread, pneumatic actuation, vacuum up to max. 350 bar - Product family

Please find below a selection of available articles.
For further articles and designs, please refer to our data sheet or catalog.

The WEH® TW18P connector is the perfect tool for automated pressure, function and vacuum testing during production and rated for pressures up to max. 350 bar. The safe and pressure-tight connection to standardised male threads is established in just seconds – without tedious hand tightening.

No additional thread sealants are required, time-consuming and expensive clamping and testing devices are eliminated. The pneumatic actuation for external manual, semi or fully automatic control systems is effected via an external valve. On frequent connection and disconnection considerable time and cost savings are achieved thanks to automated processes.

The higher the test pressure, the tighter the WEH® Connector will clamp itself onto the test piece port thus providing added safety for operators.

The quick connector is available for low pressure up to 50 bar and high pressure up to 350 bar. For manual actuation the TW18H with hand lever is available and for pneumatic applications the TW18V with valve button is the right choice.
