The Specialty Mfg. Co and SafeWay are proud of our engineering and manufacturing know-how. We are willing to work with our customers to explore and execute unique solutions that leverage our expertise with plastic and metal materials, hardening, annealing, finishing and coatings.
Reliable, Quick and Easy Modular Design When a new customer came to us in need of a fluid transfer coupling solution for cooling within electronics enclosures, we met the challenge head on. In this unique case, off-the-shelf couplers were too large and heavy for the confined space of their products. SafeWay engineers recommended reducing the
Simplifies Lubrication, and Maintenance Time is money when managing routine maintenance and lubrication of drive tracks on excavating equipment. A leading excavation machinery manufacturer designed a single zerk hydraulic system to deliver and bleed grease used to set/adjust track tension on their equipment. The system required a reliable and durable mechanism to inject lubricant, and
Eliminates Errors and Streamlines Changeover When a leading manufacturer of high-performance lubricants needed to be certain workers could quickly and easily distinguish among their fluid lines’ many standard quick disconnects, the production workers sometimes made costly connection errors that cross contaminated fluids. The lubricant manufacturer turned to SafeWay for a solution to their error-prone fluid-transfer
SafeWay quick disconnect couplers have a solid reputation for ease of use without leakage, and with minimum restriction of flow during system operation. Since our founding in 1969, all SafeWay fluid transfer products, including the first two way sleeve quick-connect, have been designed, fabricated and assembled in USA.
Today’s impressive product line includes a broad foundation of industrial interchange quick disconnect couplers. These include various ISO interchanges, heavy duty connect-under-pressure designs and innovative flush-face, non-face, non-spill models. Our product specifications and quality are second to none. We frequently work with OEM’s to design special products for their unique applications.
Today SafeWay’s hydraulic connector product line is impressive and includes quick connect/disconnect hydraulic connectors used in a broad range of industries. Its hydraulic connectors meet specifications common in industries such as agriculture, construction, hydraulic jack, and other mobile equipment applications. SafeWay products are used in every industry where a fast and dependable fluid connection is required.
SafeWay quick couplings and quick connect hydraulic fittings are standard equipment on a wide variety of products, including farm tractors, snow plows, sprayers, pressure washers, front-end loaders, skid-steer loaders, wire pullers, earth moving equipment, hydraulic rams and jacks, turf equipment, mining operations, chemical plants, steel mills, hydraulic hand tools, test benches, tractor trailers, combines wing plows, rescue equipment, and offshore drilling rigs.
Additionally, SafeWay hydraulic quick connect fittings have a solid reputation for ease of use without leakage, and with minimum restriction of flow during system operation. Many hydraulic quick couplers look alike on the outside and interconnect because of exterior dimension requirements within a given interchange. But performance specifications, ease of use, and overall reliability vary greatly from brand to brand. SafeWay quick couplings have advantages over other manufactured products in their reliable design features, the high-quality materials used in production, and rigorous product testing. Product specifications and quality are second to none!
