Quick Fitting CopperHead Raises the Industry Bar for Push Connect Plumbing Technology in Irrigation

Easy push-to-connect installation and superior pressure performance

WARWICK, RI - Quick Fitting, a leading manufacturer of quick connection technology for plumbing, electrical, industrial, municipal, and OEM applications, announces CopperHead® pure copper push fittings, the latest innovation in push connection technology for irrigation applications. The patented design creates an instant connection in a few seconds with superior performance and sealing properties compared to conventional push-fit technology.

CopperHead® offers a dual seal design, which addresses a common failure point for other push to connect fittings due to poor pipe deburring and offers better pressure performance over competitive push fittings. The outer seal protects the inner seal from degradation throughout the lifetime of the connection, and the design generates 100% more sealing surface than single seal designs. The CopperHead® installs wet or dry, unlike many other fittings. This simplifies installation in irrigation applications, which are often wet and muddy; with CopperHead®, users can connect and move on without any drying or cleaning necessary.

CopperHead® fittings are factory and independently tested to levels significantly above the industry's stringent standards for plumbing and heating technology. As a result, CopperHead® is approved for irrigation applications using Copper, PEX and CPVC pipe and tubing.

With its push-to-connect fitting, installation is easy and requires fewer steps than other connection types. What's more, without any soldering, gluing, or crimping required, safety is greater, risks lowered, and installation made faster, all of which provide economic benefits to end users. With no open flames, no chemical exposure, and reduced risk of tool accidents or errors, pipe connection projects are safer and easier with CopperHead®. Health and safety are also improved by the lead-free design, which has been tested and approved to the strict U.S. National Lead law standards.

Quick Fitting is a professional-grade quick connection company that builds products and programs to support customers. CopperHead® push fittings are available with a special professional contractor 75-year warranty program that covers repairs in the event of a leak.

Innovative SWIR camera for UAV based spectral remote sensing

Innovative SWIR camera for UAV based spectral remote sensing

Allied Vision's compact and light weight Alvium SWIR (short wave infrared) cameras are the ideal choice to build cost-effective OEM systems used in embedded and machine vision applications. The cameras support a spectral range from 400 nm to 1700 nm at high quantum efficiencies. This allows to capture images in both the visible and SWIR spectra with a single camera and enables users to reduce overall system costs! Equipped with Sony's IMX990 and IMX991 SenSWIR InGaAs sensors, Alvium SWIR cameras deliver high image quality and frame rates. This makes them well suited for drones or handheld devices used in various industries such as, agriculture, mining, solar cell inspection or medical.
