EMCO Wheaton’s J0451 fuel line coupler has been recognised as the industry standard for over 30 years. Our couplers have been re-engineered to meet the changing needs of petro-chemical companies across the world, continually setting a new standard for API couplers.
Lightweight and maintenance-friendly design makes the J0451 a rugged, reliable aid when handling different fuel grades. Many of the most recognisable industry names continue to rely on this product – not least for its ability to easily support manual loading and unloading.
The J0451 fuel line coupler is designed for hassle-free use, with operators manually latching to the adaptor to begin loading or unloading. Its ergonomic design allows for in-situ nose seal replacement and includes a bevelled lip for improved load distribution.
With a weight of just 9.8kg (21.61 lbs), operators can continue using the J0451 throughout the day without fatigue setting in. Quality components, such as a forged aluminium lever with roller bearings and superior seals and gaskets, also guarantee safe, leak-free operation even when handling the most aggressive fuel grades. These design features are simple but explain why the J0451 has remained consistently popular with some of the sector’s biggest names for over three decades.
Like other couplers in EMCO Wheaton’s range, the J0451 meets recognised international standards and industry codes of practice.
The J0451 has a weight of 9.8kg (21.61 lbs) and a maximum working pressure of 10 bar (150 psi). It connects to a 4” tank truck flange and is shipped with either HP Viton, Buna or low-temperature Viton seals.
This product is commonly used to transfer a wide range of different fuel products, including petrol, diesel and kerosene held on tank trucks. However, the J0451 can also handle other mediums, such as crude oil, biofuels, alcohol and solvents.
EMCO Wheaton’s entire API coupling range is also being developed to handle emerging future fuels like hydrogen.
Fuel loading and unloading is an intensive process and even the best products in this environment are prone to wear.
EMCO Wheaton offers a complete range of original spares and service kits to keep you moving – this includes new seals and gaskets that are easily fitted to the J0451.
