Nobody likes to disconnect a push-pull primary fluid line and take a shower in jet fuel or hydraulic fluid, especially in a combat situation. To avoid this all-to-common scenario on the new multinational F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, Lockheed Martin chose Eaton’s new Ultra-Mate couplings for primary fluid conveyance applications. Eaton is now offering the self-sealing, self-locking design to the business aviation industry under the company’s Aeroquip brand. The Ultra-Mate couplings feature automatic pull-home valve sleeves and tactile locking pins in corrosion-resistant steel, aluminum or titanium for operating pressures up to 5,900 psi.
