Quick Connect Couplings, Pneumatics, and Hydraulics

Rectus manufactures a full line of quick-connect couplings ranging in size from the micro coupler (the smallest automatic coupler in the world) to the 1″ light hydraulic coupler, all of which are available in brass, stainless steel AISI 303 and 316, and thermoplastic POM and PVDF. By meeting industry´s requirements for quick-connect couplings and offering high performance and in an extensive range of sizes and connections, Rectus has become a recognized leader in couplings manufacturing.

Product Lineup

Low-Pressure Couplings

Brass/Steel
  • Single Shut-Off
  • Double Shut-Off
  • Dry-Break
    • Coupling systems for applications in sensitive environments, such as in analysis technology, cooling circuits, transport systems and many applications with aggressive medium. No air locks whatsoever and extremely low leakage rates.
Stainless Steel
  • Single Shut-Off
  • Double Shut-Off
  • Dry-Break
    • Coupling systems for applications in sensitive environments, such as in analysis technology, cooling circuits, transport systems and many applications with aggressive medium. No air locks whatsoever and extremely low leakage rates.
Thermoplastics
  • RectuChemRectus-RectuChem
    • Made of polyvinyl fluoride (PVDF) has been designed for increased resistance to chemicals. The stable spring made of high quality stainless steel guarantees a secure connection and permanent functionality.
  • RectuChem+Rectus-RectuChem+
    • Made of solid plastic is extremely resistant to all organic and mineral media. The resistance of the sealing materials, the PVDF base material and the spring fittings made of PEEK offer virtually unlimited application possibilities. The system is excellently suited for media that must not be contaminated by metal radicals.
  • RectuPomRectus-RectuPom
    • Made of thermoplastic polymer is distinguished by unequalled high mechanical strength and outstanding resistance to liquids and high temperatures. The plug is automatically locked in position when pushed in. To disconnect, simply pull back the sleeve.
Safety

We consider that protecting people and material surfaces is an important issue. For use mainly in danger areas with high safety requirements, we have developed coupling systems with safety locks

  • Single Shut-Off
  • Double Shut-Off
  • Self-Venting
    • Patented single-hand self-venting technique with 2 separate locking systems makes it possible to bleed off trapped air automatically before uncoupling. Plastic sleeves prevent surface scratches. Application area exclusive to compressed air.
  • Breathing Air
    • The 96KS coupling system has a safety lock. To disconnect, the plug must first be pushed further into the coupling before it can be unlocked. This prevents unintentional disconnection.
Thermo-oil

With the combination of high temperature sealing, Flat-Faced design, stainless steel material and single-hand operation, Rectus is setting a new standard in the field of thermo-oil applications. This coupling system ensure a safe and clean connecting and disconnecting process. Easy cleaning for carbonized residues. Long-term functionality is guaranteed.

Hoses and TubingRectus-Tubing

  • RECTULASTIC – Nylon 12 (Polyamid)
    • Straight hoses or coiled hoses; multicolored dual and quadruple; unprecedented return force; small twists and therefore requires minimum space; light weight; resistant to organic and inorganic materials.
  • RECTUFLEX – Polyurethane
    • Straight hoses or coiled hoses; multicolored dual and quadruple; extremely flexible; resistant to buckling; no change in cross-section; max. working length equal to 80% of stretch length; coiled hoses are supplied with swivel fittings and buckling protection on both ends.
  • SUPERBRAID® – Polyurethane Inner Braided Hose
    • Straight hoses or coiled hoses; as flexible as the conventional PU hose – from -40°C to +75°C – even with fabric inlay; extremely small twist diameter; coiled hoses are supplied with pre-assembled swivel fittings and buckling protection.
  • ULTRA-LITE SUPERBRAID® – Polyurethane Inner Braided Hose
    • Straight hoses; fittings for easy self-assembly; much lighter than the SUPERBRAID® hose and therefore even more flexible and easy to use; highly resistant to temperature (-40°C to +75°C); extremely small twist diameter.
  • RECTUSPARK® – Polyurethane on Polyester Basis, with Protection against Welding Sparks
    • Straight hoses or coiled hoses; the non-flammable coating provides the hose with reliable protection against welding sparks; extremely flexible, pliable and resistant to buckling and ideally suited to harsh industrial applications.
  • RECTUSOFT – Highly Flexible PVC, with Polyester Fibre Reinforcement (TÜV-tested)
    • Straight hoses or coiled hoses; extremely flexible, even at ultra-low temperatures; highly resistant to tears and pressure; light weight and easy operation makes this hose ideal for operating compressed air tools.
  • RECTUCHEM® – PVDF
    • Straight hoses or coiled hoses; the perfect solution for chemical technology, especially clean applications; structurally resistant to many chemicals and therefore useful in a broad range of applications.
