What Fluid Products do we sell?



We have split our range of Fluid Power in to the following Sections:

Pneumatic quick connect couplings

Pneumatic Quick Release Couplings

Our pneumatic quick connect coupling (or quick release coupling) range includes brands such as CEJN, Parkair, PCL, Schrader, Rectus to name a few.

The CEJN models that are available are

  • Series 220
  • Series 291
  • Series 300 eSafe
  • Series 310 eSafe
  • Series 315 eSafe
  • Series 320 & 326 eSafe
  • Series 381
  • Series 410 eSafe
  • Series 430 eSafe
  • Series 471

  • Series 341 Breathing Air
  • Series 342 Breathing Air
  • Series 344 Breathing Air
  • Series 345 Breathing Air
  • Series 442 Breathing Air

The eSafe couplings have an in-built safety function that vent the downstream pressure before disconnection, which reduces noise and the risk of hose-whip.  These couplings are designed to be extremely durable against impact, vibration and swivelling.  The eSafe couplings have been designed to have the highest flow in the coupling market, whilst still being the same size of a standard coupling.

Parkair Couplings are designed to interchange with the markets leading brands, and include the following:

  • CP17 interchanges with the Rectus Series 17 and Schrader Standard Twwist Lock
  • CP19 interchanges with the Rectus Series 19 and PCL Airflow Series
  • CP205 is the swing coupling version of the CP19
  • CP21 interchanges with Series 21 and 90 Couplings and is also available colour coded.
  • CP33 interchanges with the Series 33 and QIC 10
  • CP34 interchanges with the Series 34 and QIC 15
  • CP399 alternative to the Schrader Twist Lock couplings

We also supply the genuine Schrader Twist lock Couplings, PCL Airflow, Vertex 60/100 Series and Instant-Air Couplings

Air Preparation

The Air Preparation products we supply are as follows:

  • General Purpose filters to remove water and particulates in the compressed air to protect to downstream equipment
  • Coalescent Filter remove 99.99% of oil and solid contaminants larger than 0.3 micron, we can offer a finer filter if required.
  • Absorber Filters which are deisgned to remove vapours from the air line that cannot be removed with coalescent filters.
  • Ultra Clean Filter assemblies combining all three of the above filters.
  • Pressure Regulators to control the air flow to a precise pressure regarded for any given application.  We can provide manual and pilot operated regulators.
  • Air-line Lubricators for applications that require lubricated air.
  • Relief Valves that are set to the maximum system pressure to prevent over pressurisation of the system.
  • Integral Filter/Regulators provide an economy of size and lower cost than having separate regulators and filters
