If you are looking for a Geka coupling to connect two hoses to each other or the tap in a fast, solid and leak-tight way. Then Techniparts is the right place for you!
What is a Geka Coupling?
Based on the fire extinguisher coupling, the Geka quick coupling was developed by the founder, Julius Oehler, in the 1920s. In 1932, the company received the German patent for this excellent product. The advantages and applications of the Geka quick coupling are quickly apparent. The Geka couplers were quickly put into service. This as couplings for: water hoses in the fields of industry, professional horticulture, agriculture and forestry, structural and civil engineering, domestic water systems, environmental protection and home and garden.
Succes of the Geka Coupling.
The success of the Geka shortcut continues to this day. A really long product life cycle. For example, the coupling was mainly intended for quick and easy connection. And for attaching flexible hoses. The technical requirements on which it was based in terms of pressure resistance corresponded to normal tap water pressure (2-8 bar). In the beginning this often also applied to the geka coupling 3/4.
The Geka Koppeling nowadays.
Nowadays, this geka system can handle a static pressure of 12 and 14 bar. While the product still has a certain capacity for applications with higher pressure ranges. The field of application has been successfully extended from just water to other liquid substances. This has everything to do with the use of specific sealing materials.
The geka coupling is also called the French coupling tank truck or German coupling.
What is a Geka coupling for?
A claw coupling has the purpose of connecting two hoses to each other or to the tap in a fast, solid and, moreover, leak-tight manner. This creates a good flow of water. This quick way of connecting and disconnecting the Geka coupling is simple and safe.
How it works?
This product has 2 metal or plastic claws (possibly with rubber in the coupling). With hooks on one hose behind the metal or plastic edge of the other hose. It is great to use, for example, to connect your garden hoses. This can be done together, but also at the tap.
Pressure couplings are used for applications with high pressures. This type of coupling is rotated 130° when connected and is fitted with a pressure-resistant rubber ring. Usually this type is (very) difficult to disconnect under pressure, which increases safety. There are several standardized types:
You use a suction hose coupling with suction hoses. This type of coupling is rotated 90° when connected and is fitted with a pressure-resistant rubber ring. The couplings are often equipped with fold-out handles, so that it is easier to connect the often stiff hoses.
The GEKA quick coupling developed by the founder Julius Oehler, in the 1920s. In 1932 the company received the German patent for this excellent product. GK coupler is probably the even further shortening of Geka coupler. Geka was the name of a Belgian or French manufacturer or supplier of these special couplings for hoses.
