What is the difference between a quick connector and a union? Is it the same thing?

There is no difference between the two.

The quick connector refers to the live joint, which is a common pipe connector that can be easily installed and disassembled. It mainly consists of three parts: nut, cloud head and flat joint. The types of socket joints are equal diameter and different diameter.

Quick connectors can be divided into: quick connectors for air, quick connectors for oxygen fuel gas, quick connectors for gas and liquid, quick connectors for oil pressure, quick connectors for inert gas, quick connectors for cooling water and oil, and semiconductor quick connectors.

Extended information:

Features of quick connectors (joints):

1. Time-saving and labor-saving: When disconnecting and connecting the oil circuit through the quick connector, the action is simple, saving time and manpower.

2. Fuel saving: When the oil circuit is broken, the one-way valve on the quick connector can close the oil circuit, and the oil will not flow out, avoiding the loss of oil and oil pressure.

3. Environmental protection: When the quick joint is broken and connected, the oil will not leak, which protects the environment.

4. The equipment is divided into parts for convenient transportation: large-scale equipment or hydraulic tools that need to be carried easily, use quick connectors to disassemble and transport, and then assemble and use after arriving at the destination.

5. Economy: All the above advantages have created economic value for customers.
