Quick-disconnect non-spill couplings

Paul Boughton

Colder Products Company will highlight cost-effective connectors at Achema 2006 in Frankfurt, Germany from 15 to 19 May.

Among the innovations on display will be new compact, non-spill connections that are suitable for a variety of industrial applications, and a time-saving flat-bottom port for analytical instrumentation systems.

Colder will also demonstrate recent developments with its Drumquik line of dip-tube chemical extraction systems for rigid chemical transport containers (bottles, drums, and intermediate bulk containers).

There will also be a preview of the new NS2 series, the latest addition to Colder's line of non-spill couplings. Designed for applications where space is limited, the new couplings provide excellent flow characteristics and offer an economical alternative to costly metal non-spill couplings.

NS2 responds to increasing demand for smallersafermore cost-effective industrial couplings says Andy Hass, business unit manager for industrial markets. Featuring a double-sided non-spill shutoff valvethese virtually leak-free couplings are ideal for applications such as analytical instrumentation and chemical handling."

Colder's Drumquik reliablesafe fluid handling products help users to achieve a closed system for the spill- and fume-free extraction of aggressive chemicals. The latest version to the line adds the benefit of disposability and can include smart weight- and temperature-sensing capabilities.

"Drumquik products represent a safecost-effective and easy-to-use solution that addresses the need to minimise potential chemical contact for technicians and the environment says Tom Braun, business unit manager for chemical and packaging markets.

Also featured will be a 1/4-28 flat bottom port for Colder's popular PMC12 series couplings. This port, which is compatible with standard HPLC type fittings, saves the user time by eliminating the need to thread and re-thread a separate fitting every time the line is disconnected. The PMC12 is well suited to a variety of analytical instrumentation applications including mass spectrometry, flow cytometry and gas chromatography.
