SeriesLock™, a New Innovative Quick Disconnect Fitting

Changing the way you connect.

The unique Spring-Free Flow Path™ quick disconnect coupler allows a larger volume of fluid to pass through it at lower line pressures. optimizing the flow, reducing restriction, turbidity, foaming and bubbles.

Four body sizes are available to accommodate application of  1/16” ID to 3/4” ID Tubing. Connection options: Barb, Panel Mount, Sanitary Flange, Port Plate/Bag Port, NPT Thread and Micro-Connect.

SeriesLock was born from customer feedback. Customers asked for a product that could be disconnected easily with one hand while wearing gloves.  They also wanted assurance that the product would not accidentally disconnect when dropped or bumped.

SeriesLock adapter fittings allow for quick and easy connection of Eldon James PVC/BPA free tube/hose ends to almost any component  – threaded component solutions for the medical, food & beverage, and automotive industries. Three different body sizes are available in the Adapter Fittings to accommodate tubing sizes ranging from 1/8” ID to 3/4” ID. These adapters are available with National Pipe Threads (NPT).
