The double-acting sliding sleeve is fixed in the locked position by means of a pre-stressed spring. For the purpose of uncoupling it is able to slide in both axial directions. The two halves of the plug-type coupling are locked together securely by means of precision snap-in balls.
The sliding sleeve can be installed in a bulkhead with retaining rings. In this way, the carrier fulfils the function of a breakaway coupling. Should a probe be torn away from a carrier installed in this way, the system is decoupled and the valves close automatically, thus preventing damage to the hose and possible loss of oil.
