The 1/4" flow PLC Series is proven worldwide in thousands of applications and offers the widest selection of sizes and configurations. PLC quick disconnect couplings are injection molded from acetal thermoplastic and are resistant to most mild chemical solutions.

These couplings offer the flexibility of multiple configurations and terminations and mate with both LC metal and PLC12 polypropylene couplings. NSF-listed versions are suitable for use with beverage and condiment lines.

The PLC Series is also available with optional RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) capability.
