SnapLok Dual Buttons

Why SnapLok...

Design - The SnapLok 'Dual Button' connection is the fastest on the market due to the fact that less rotation is needed to engage the buttons once joined together impossible to disengage while rotary cleaning because both buttons cannot be pressed at the same time.

Innovation - SnapLok is constantly innovating and evolving with new products, it offers the widest range of over 200 cleaning heads on the market with several of our own innovations that are only available from SnapLok.

Quality - SnapLok only uses high quality materials that ensures longevity, there is no comparison to materials like stainless steel which competitors try to compare with inferior products and materials.

Comparison - 'Buy cheap, buy twice'. When comparing SnapLok equipment with competitors products, do not just compare the cost, but compare the materials used and the technical design, as this is a true reflection of comparison,

Stainless Steel Pipes

Competitor Rod Material Comparisions

Stainless steel fittings on SnapLok rods are considered far superior to the aluminum and brass fittings that are used by competitors for several reasons:

1. Strength and Durability

  • Stainless Steel:

    • High Strength: Stainless steel is known for its exceptional strength, making it highly resistant to bending, breaking, and deformation under heavy loads or impact.

    • Durability: It withstands wear and tear over time, maintaining its structural integrity and functionality longer than aluminum or brass.

  • Aluminum:

    • Moderate Strength: Aluminum is strong but not as strong as stainless steel. It can bend or deform more easily under stress.

    • Less Durable: While aluminum is corrosion-resistant, it can wear out faster under repeated use and high-stress conditions compared to stainless steel.

  • Brass:

    • Moderate Strength: Brass has good strength but is softer than stainless steel. It is more prone to bending and deformation under heavy loads.

    • Moderate Durability: Brass fittings can wear out or become damaged more easily than stainless steel, especially in demanding applications.

2. Corrosion Resistance

  • Stainless Steel:

    • Exceptional Corrosion Resistance: Stainless steel is highly resistant to corrosion and rust, making it ideal for use in harsh environments and ensuring long-lasting performance.

  • Aluminum:

    • Good Corrosion Resistance: Aluminum has good corrosion resistance but is more susceptible to pitting and galvanic corrosion, especially in saltwater or acidic environments.

  • Brass:

    • Moderate Corrosion Resistance: Brass has decent corrosion resistance but can tarnish and corrode over time, particularly when exposed to certain chemicals or moist conditions.

3. Maintenance and Longevity

  • Stainless Steel:

    • Low Maintenance: Stainless steel fittings require minimal maintenance to keep them in good condition.

    • Long Lifespan: Due to their strength and corrosion resistance, stainless steel fittings have a significantly longer lifespan compared to aluminum and brass fittings.

  • Aluminum:

    • Moderate Maintenance: Aluminum fittings may require more frequent inspection and maintenance to prevent corrosion and wear.

    • Shorter Lifespan: They generally have a shorter lifespan due to their susceptibility to wear and damage.

  • Brass:

    • Moderate Maintenance: Brass fittings need regular maintenance to prevent tarnishing and corrosion.

    • Moderate Lifespan: Brass fittings typically have a shorter lifespan compared to stainless steel due to their lower strength and corrosion resistance.

4. Cost-Effectiveness

  • Stainless Steel:

    • Higher Initial Cost: While stainless steel fittings may have a higher upfront cost, their durability and longevity make them more cost-effective in the long run due to reduced replacement and maintenance costs.

  • Aluminum:

    • Lower Initial Cost: Aluminum fittings are often less expensive initially, but their shorter lifespan and higher maintenance needs can lead to higher long-term costs.

  • Brass:

    • Moderate Initial Cost: Brass fittings may have a moderate initial cost, but their shorter lifespan and higher maintenance requirements can also result in higher long-term expenses.

5. Application Suitability

  • Stainless Steel:

    • Versatile: Suitable for a wide range of applications, including those requiring high strength and corrosion resistance.

  • Aluminum:

    • Specific Use Cases: Best for applications where weight is a critical factor, but not as suitable for heavy-duty or high-stress environments.

  • Brass:

    • Specialized Applications: Often used in specific applications where its properties are beneficial, but not as versatile as stainless steel for general use.

In summary, stainless steel fittings are superior due to their unmatched strength, exceptional corrosion resistance, low maintenance, and long-term cost-effectiveness, making them the preferred choice for demanding applications.
