Fuel pipe quick connectors are widely used to transport fuel, oil vapor, water, air and other media because of their simple installation steps and use effects. However, if you use the pipeline for too long or the connector is damaged, then we need to have a certain understanding of how to replace the quick connector, so that when you need it, you can read the following article for your convenience operating.
How to replace the fuel pipe quick connector?
The safety of quick connectors
The fuel pipe quick connector consists of a main body, an O-ring, a spacer ring, a fixed ring and a locking spring. The steps for disconnection are also relatively simple. Simply push the male connector first, and then press the paperclip button to release it. At this time, you can easily disconnect the connector. Be careful not to use brute force to break this place, but follow the steps step by step. Also note that it is best to lubricate with some oil when reinstalling.
When installing the end of the mating pipe into the connector, please connect the two connectors together with a wire clamp, and then pull it back until it is fully connected. The wire clamp is used because the locking spring has a certain elasticity. The only thing to note is to ensure that the pipe is fully inserted into the fitting. Otherwise, if you do not push the tube through the O-ring inside the fitting, the O-ring seal will not work, which will cause leakage. Here is an easy way for you to ensure that the pipe is fully inserted, marking the end of the pipe on a line approximately three quarters of an inch. When the two parts are fully connected when ready to be installed, the three-quarter inch line should disappear in the fitting.
The quick connector has a radial structure with double sealing rings and uses a rubber O-ring. It is mainly used for the physical and chemical properties of the fluid and has the functions of anti-aging, corrosion and expansion. Synthetic rubber O-rings are used externally to improve mechanical performance. The outer O-ring is separated by a middle gasket. In this way, there is a corresponding space on the two sealing rings, and no adhesion between the rubber substrates occurs, thereby preventing air aging. The sealing ring and the gasket ring are firmly fixed on the housing by the outer ring of the elastic clamping device, and the ring will not fall off and shift. Through its own design, it ensures a good sealing safety and prevents leakage and contamination.
The safety function of the connector can be brought into full play by replacing the fuel pipe quick connector correctly. Because there are many types of connectors, some may require special attention, so it is best to read the relevant documents carefully before replacing them to avoid accidents.
