With Heavy-Duty Body
Sleeve Now Available
Quick-connects with a heavy- duty body sleeve design are now available from Swagelok Quick-
Connect Co., Solon, Ohio. The de- sign allows users to install instru- ment-quality Swagelok Quick-Con- nects in rugged industrial systems.
The sleeve protects the Quick-
Connect body when the unit is un- coupled. Dropping and other rough handling will not damage the open end of the body.
The Swagelok Quick-Connects feature automatic shutoff to mini- mize pressure loss or fluid spillage during uncoupling. Operation is an easy straight-line action—push to connect, pull to disconnect.
Sizes are 1/8-inch to 1/2-inch in brass and 316 stainless steel. End connections can be Swagelok Tube
Fittings, NPT, 37-degree AN flare, or Cajon Hose Connectors. Service ratings range from vacuum to 3,000 psi and 400 degrees F.

Palmer Offers Brochure
Palmer Internationl, Inc., Wor- cester, Pa., has developed two elas- tomeric compounds, DuraTough
DP and DuraTough DL, for the repair of marine components dam- aged by cavitation. These compliant compounds are designed to inhibit the deterioration of metal sub- strates caused by cavitation and low percentages of entrained solids (silt and sand) in high volume and high velocity fluid flow environments.
Both materials are cold-applied over a grit blasted surface treated with a corrosion-inhibiting primer.
DuraTough SP is mixed to a firm paste and is used for filling areas deeply pitted by cavitation, and can be applied to vertical or horizontal overhead surfaces up to 1-1/2 inches thick without slumping. DuraTough
DL is a high viscosity, brushable topcoat, applied to protect metals from damage caused by cavitation and entrained solids' erosion.
Tests conducted by the B.C. Hy- dro Research & Development Labo- ratory, Surrey, British Columbia, show that DuraTough resists cavita- tion erosion five times better than carbon steel and two time better than 308L stainless weld overlay. (Figures obtained from ASTM G 32
Vibratory Cavitation Test methods for low intensity cavitation.)
According to Palmer Internation- al, repairing cavitation-damaged marine components (rudders, struts, screws, bearing "barrels," circ pumps, sea chests, Kort noz- zles) with DuraTough is extremely cost-effective.
