HILTAP couplings, quick connects and related fittings have been used on high temperature vacuum forming autoclaves () and in the manufacturing of military and commercial aircraft components for over a decade. Leading space simulation chamber operators use or cryogenic couplings for liquid nitrogen transfer and evacuation. With ultra-low leak rates (less than 1 X 10 - 9 std c.c.He/s), and cryogenic connectors are ideal for LHE, LN2, LH2, Argon, CO2 and other difficult applications. HILTAP quick connects are used on airborne variable frequency generators as the lubricant fill fittings on large business jets.
HILTAPâ�™s ability to customize existing connections or develop new designs is considered by many leading aerospace companies as an extension of their R&D efforts. HILTAPâ�™s bi-metal seal allows sealing over a wide range of temperatures. Install the connector at room temperature, and be sure of leak free performance during thermal shocking. Like all HILTAP couplings, any residual or line pressure locks the coupling, preventing sudden disconnections and safely protecting nearby operators.
