FasTest Introduces Valved Appliances Quick Connector
FasTest, Inc., the industry leader in standard and customized quick connectors, has partnered with a leading global manufacturer of home appliances to engineer a custom valved quick connector. This FasTest connector will be used during functional tests of gas-fired appliances to reduce test time and increase throughput throughout the manufacturing processes.
A long-standing customer came to FasTest with a desire to improve the efficiency of their manual functional testing process. The customer required a single action to simultaneously seal the port and open a valve to a live gas line. Prior to FasTest, the appliance manufacturer was using outdated Tuthill connectors that had poor main seal life and were difficult to repair and service in the field.
