BUCCHI QUICK JOINT TANK ADAPTORS
PROUDLY DISTRIBUTED BY PLASSON AUSTRALIA
INSTALL IN SECONDS
WITH ONE PERSON OUTSIDE THE TANK
SOLID CONNECTIONS IN SECONDS EVEN ON CURVED OR UNEVEN WALLS
BUCCHI adaptors fit from the outside so you don’t need access to both sides of the tank wall
THE ENGINEERING BEHIND A TANK CONNECTOR THAT CAN BE INSTALLED BY ONE PERSON IN SECONDS
Fitting tank connections is a fiddly, frustrating job usually requiring two people and exceptional hand-eye co-ordination but a clever Italian company is changing all that.
BUCCHI have spent years perfecting a tank connector design, called Quick Joints or QJ. Quick Joints can be installed in tank walls from the outside, without the need for welding, sealants or locknuts, and installation can be done by one person in a matter of seconds.
For over 40 years BUCCHI have developed fittings for farming, gardening, heating and air-conditioning. The quality of their seals is paramount so BUCCHI produce high-tech elastomer seals designed to handle dynamic movement and significant elastic deformations without changing original shape.
Dr. Anna Valentini, Head of Laboratory and Quality Control of BUCCHI, explains:
A copolymer of butadiene and acrylonitrile that is used for most seal applications for conventional fluids. NBR elastomers offer good properties of compression, tear and abrasion resistance; good flexibility and high breaking load (up to 210kg cm²). Operating temperatures vary from -30 ° to + 100 ° C.
NBR seals are impermeable to gases and offer excellent chemical resistance to gas, butane, propane, fatty acids, water and detergents.
An ethylene and propylene-based rubber with a third monomer (diene). It is particularly resistant to fluids such as water and vapour.
The gaskets in E.P.D.M. have high resistance to permanent deformation and a good breaking load (up to 180 kg cm2), with an operating temperature from -45 ° to + 130 ° C.
The EPDM compound resists corrosive chemical agents, oxidation, the ozone, heat, heat ageing; its resistance to high concentration acids is also good.
This fluorinated elastomer has exceptional resistance to heat and to atmospheric and chemical agents. It has a low permanent deformation and a breaking load of over 140 kg cm2. The operating temperature varies from -30 ° to + 200 ° C.
Fluorinated elastomers have excellent chemical resistance to lubricating oils, aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, petrol, hydraulic liquids not readily flammable, caustic soda, formaldehyde, chloroform, acids and numerous other chemical products.
