If you are looking for a Geka coupling to connect two hoses to each other or to the faucet in a quick, solid and leak-proof manner. Then you are at the right place at Techniparts!
What is a Geka Coupling?
With the fire extinguisher coupling as a starting point, 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 benefits and applications of the Geka quick coupler soon became clear and Geka couplings were quickly put into use as couplings for water hoses in the areas of industry, professional horticulture, agriculture and forestry, structural and civil engineering, domestic water systems, environmental protection and home and garden. The success of the Geka quick coupler continues to this day - a really long product life cycle. The coupling was primarily intended for the quick and easy connection and attachment of flexible hoses. The technical requirements on which it was based in terms of pressure resistance corresponded to the normal tap water pressure (2-8 bar) and the standard Geka coupling 3/4. With a static pressure of 12 and 14 bar, the product still had a certain capacity for applications with higher pressure ranges. Thanks to the use of specific sealing materials, the area of ??application could be successfully expanded from just water to other liquid substances.
What is a Geka connection for?
A Geka coupling (claw coupling) has the purpose of fastening two hoses to each other or the tap for the passage of water in a fast, solid and leak-proof manner. This allows the couplings to be connected and disconnected easily and safely.
How does a Geka connection work?
Geka couplings has 2 metal or plastic claws. With hooks on one hose behind the metal or plastic edge of the other hose. It is super to use to connect your garden hoses. This can be done together but also at the tap.
A pressure coupling is used for hoses that are under pressure. This type of coupling is turned at connection 130 ° and is equipped with a pressure-resistant rubber ring. Usually this type is (very) difficult to disconnect under pressure, which increases safety. There are different standardized types:
A suction hose coupling is used for suction hoses. This type of coupling is turned 90 ° at connection and is equipped with a pressure-resistant rubber ring. The couplings are often equipped with folding handles to make connecting the often stiff hoses easier.
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 coupling is probably the further shortening of Geka coupling. Geka was the name of a Belgian or French manufacturer or supplier of these special couplings for hoses.
