Quick Connect Fittings and Couplings

Value Plastics offers four distinct families of quick connect fittings (quick disconnect couplings): the RQC Series - BioProcessing Quick Connects, the MQC Series – Dual Latch Quick Connects, the XQ Series - Thumb Latch Quick Connects, and the SBL Series - Side Latch Quick Connect products, for applications covering 1/8” (3.2 mm) through 3/8” (9.5 mm) ID tubing.

Value Plastics' RQC connector set features a more user friendly interface.

As the leading global pharmaceutical component manufacturer, Value Plastics has developed a more robust alternative for bioprocessing needs with the RQC Series offering a cost effective solution for flexible tubing connections in single use systems. The connector set is best in fit, form and function, and features a user-friendly interface that includes a large guarded button for a secure lock to guard against disconnects, and lofted lead-in for improved ease of connection. The more reliable locking feature gives you peace of mind knowing your connection is secure.
