Clamshell Couplings (Wiggins / Hydraflow style)

OUR PATENTED CLAMSHELL COUPLINGS ARE. . . SIMPLY A SNAP!

Perfect for racing and service situations where time is an issue, these full flow, quick disconnect couplings are a fixed cavity design with threadless clamshell closures for a seal that’s fast, smart and secure. Manufactured by Hydraflow, a leader in aerospace fluid transfer systems, the patented clamshell closures lock automatically when the two halves are snapped together and cannot disengage accidentally. All three latch pawls must be lifted simultaneously to open the latch. For an added measure of security, the couplings can also be ordered with a self-bonding safety device, which prevents mis-installation and provides for quick, easy visual inspection. 

Clamshell quick disconnect couplings offer excellent flexibility with axial adjustment of up to 1/4" and angular misalignment of 4° for couplings on tubing. In addition, XRP offers the industry’s largest stock of hose ends, adapters, weld-ons, caps, plugs and accessories. NOTE: THESE CLAMSHELL QUICK DISCONNECT COUPLINGS ARE UNOBSTRUCTED, FREE FLOWING, AND DO NOT SELF SEAL WHEN DISCONNECTED. Caps and plugs are available below to seal off the connection when dissconnected. MAXIMUM OPERATING PRESSURE = 125psi. Clamps, weld ferrules and sleeves are available in stainless steel.

Please Note: These parts are NOT certified for use in aircraft

How They Work

Hard-line, Tubing or Component (oil tanks, turbo...) Application

Ferrules are welded on the hard-line, tubing or component. Body / sleeve slides over o-rings (lube first) after ferrules are butted together. Clamp is latched over the sleeve capturing the assembly. Tube offsets of 1/4" and angular offsets of 40 are compensated for by the sleeve. Connectors are sized by the tubing you are using: 1/2" tubing = -8 (8/16 = 1/2), a 3 inch tube would use a -48 coupling (3 x 16=48). The connection is quickly connected or disconnected by simply unlatching the clamp and separating the joint.
Hose End Applications

A clamshell hose end is installed on the hose (CPE or Hypalon). The sleeve / body is replace by the hose end. The hose end slides over the o-rings (after lubing) and the clamp assembly is installed creating the coupling. Removal and assembly of the hose connection is quickly achieved by unlatching the clamp and sliding the hose end off the adaptor. The size is determined by the hose and adapter. Typically a -8 hose uses a -8 clamshell, a -10 hose uses a -10 clamshell and so on. When connecting a single o-ring adaptor to an XRP hose end, a spacer adaptor is needed.
Spacer Use

Our HCSP spacer fits inside a double O-ring cavity and allows it to be used with a single O-ring flange.

Each coupling assembly consists of two pieces: a clamshell AND a sleeve. Example: 14J02-08 consists of 14C02-08 plus 14R02-08. Coupling flanges and O-ring seals are not included in the coupling assembly and should be ordered separately. Please specify A for aluminum or C for stainless steel when ordering. NOTE: Viton O-Rings are standard on all XRP adapter fittings. If using nitro-methane or alcohol, specify EPR O-Rings.

Weld Ferrules 

For aluminum tubing applications: Use socket weld only if tubing is to be brazed. Use butt weld if tubing is to be welded. Socket welds have a counterbored area for tubing insertion. For stainless steel tubing applications: Either socket weld or butt weld styles may be used. If you have any questions, regarding your application, call for technical assistance. Tubing Flange Weld Ons listed below are aluminum. Viton O-Rings included. NOTE: If using nitro-methane or alcohol, specify EPR O-Rings. NOTE: Our HCSP spacer fits inside a double O-ring cavity and allows it to be used with a single O-ring flange.
