Imperial 16C 1/4 Straight Kwik Coupler

The kwik-coupler set is intended for use with refrigeration and air-conditioning service hoses when connecting to core valve type access fittings. Conventional threaded connecting is converted to a push-pull operation which is faster, easier and positive sealing at all times. Valve cores are depressed automatically without adjustments or loss of refrigerant. Disconnecting is also accomplished without loss of refrigerant. An automatic shut-off valve retains refrigerant pressure in a disconnected hose. This feature permits transferring high side hose refrigerant through the service manifold into the low side, thereby eliminating waste and hazardous high-pressure discharge and atmospheric damage.

  • Automatic shut-off of hose ends permits discharging high side hose through the manifold into low side.
  • Eliminates hazardous discharge of refrigerant and oil from the system when disconnecting the hose.
  • Simplifies the operation of charging a critical amount of refrigerant into small systems.
  • Prevents finger burn when disconnecting – especially servicing heat pumps in cold weather.
