ST. CLAIR, Mich., Sept. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- NORMA Group, a global market leader in engineered joining technology, has developed a new plastic quick connector for use on fuel and NOX-reducing diesel urea systems in passenger, commercial and off-highway vehicles.
Produced at a NORMA Americas plant in St. Clair, Michigan, the NORMAQUICK SSL quick connector is easy to assemble to fluid lines without the use of special tools.
Responding to the growing need for ease of assembly, the NORMAQUICK SSL quick connector features a secondary latch that ensures service personnel can make a secure connection and also allows for quick disconnection.
Werner Deggim, CEO of the NORMA Group, said, "Our innovative solutions cater to our customer needs for enhancing and making their assembly processes and their products even more reliable. The new quick connector is yet another addition to our product portfolio that accommodates our customers' demands."
NORMA Group's quick connectors produce a significant "click" sound when installed correctly. The secondary latch of the NORMAQUICK SSL quick connector provides an added level of security. If the NORMAQUICK SSL quick connector needs to be disassembled for maintenance and service, a technician can easily disconnect it by pressing the latch on the same side it was engaged.
The quick connector is designed for use on both plastic and metal fittings designed to meet SAE J2044 specifications. Made of recyclable materials, the connector features extremely low fluid permeability. The NORMAQUICK SSL quick connector comes standard in 0° and 90° versions and special versions are available upon request.
