Putzmeister has introduced a new hydraulic coupling system used for creating safer and easier connections on detach placing booms.
Putzmeister America Inc. has introduced a hydraulic coupling system used for creating quicker, easier and cleaner connections on hydraulic lines that connect pedestals with placing booms to power the boom arm. The new couplers easily screw together, coupling and uncoupling while depressurized.
“Not only is the new design easy and convenient, but it’s also safer to install,” said Bob Weiglein, Putzmeister’s special applications business manager. “The new couplers will help save time on the job site, as they can easily be taken apart and reattached to the placing boom’s hydraulic lines.”
For use when disconnecting the boom from pedestal or truck in placing boom applications, the hydraulic coupling system is available on detachable placing booms, making truck-to-tower conversions a more efficient process. Additional benefits of the hydraulic coupling system include the ability to couple and uncouple each line individually, an easily accessible connection plate, and hose bundles that are re-routed and secured in a streamlined way.
Putzmeister’s new hydraulic coupling system is available on select boom models for new equipment orders.
