Quick Connect Fittings and Couplings / RQ Series
Quick connect fittings provide a fast connection or disconnection of fluid transfer lines that can be done easily without the use of tools and without disrupting the pressure of the contents inside the tubing.
Nordson MEDICAL offers six families of quick connect fittings (quick disconnect couplings): the RQC Series - BioProcessing Quick Connects, the RQX Series - BioProcessing Quick Connects, the MQC Series – Dual Latch Quick Connects, the XQ and PQC Series - Thumb Latch Quick Connects, and the SBL Series - Side Latch Quick Connect products, for applications covering 1/8” (3.2 mm) through 1/2" (12.7 mm) ID tubing.
Guard Against Disconnects with a Secure Lock
As the leading global pharmaceutical component manufacturer, Nordson MEDICAL has developed a more robust alternative for bioprocessing needs with the RQC Series and RQX Series offering a cost effective solution for flexible tubing connections in single use systems. The connector set is best in fit, form and function, and features a user-friendly interface that includes a large guarded button for a secure lock to guard against disconnects, and lofted lead-in for improved ease of connection. The more reliable locking feature gives you peace of mind knowing your connection is secure. The offer includes caps and plugs to support sterilization and shipment needs. Available in widely used polypropylene and polycarbonate materials, these connectors are compatible with industry standard quick connects to simplify qualification.*
