Shick Ledge Free (SLF) Coupling
Shick Esteve’s Ledge Free (SLF) Coupling is designed to eliminate the ledges in a tubular convey line connection that create product damage from impacting the ends of the tubular connections. In order to control the coupling alignment, SLF couplings have one half with a protrusion and the other half with a pocket for receiving the protrusion. The elimination of a ledge is accomplished by a tapered opening on the side of the coupling with a pocket. This makes a specific direction for product flow from the coupling half with the protrusion to the coupling half with the pocket. An O-ring is used to seal the joint and a V-style clamp is used to hold the faces of the coupling together. The clamp will fit either pipe or tube within the same nominal size.
