Dry-disconnect couplings simplify transfer
Jun 1, 2005 12:00 PM
Dixon Valve & Coupling Co is offering dry-disconnect couplings. These couplings, available in stainless steel in sizes from 1½" to 4", are specially designed for the transfer of chemicals, solvents, and fuels. They allow for the connection and disconnection of hoses and pipelines while eliminating accidental spillage and product loss.
Engineered to be user-friendly, each Dixon dry disconnect coupler features a built-in swivel that allows the operator to use an easy “push and turn” action to connect and start the product flow. The valve will not open until the coupler and adapter are connected, thereby eliminating accidental flows. A similarly simple “turn and pull” action disconnects the coupler and stops product flow. With this design, accidental spillage is impossible, says Dixon.
The dry-disconnect design has a stainless steel body, AISI 3156 stainless steel and Hastelloy C276 internal parts, Teflon bushings, and Viton seals; optional seals are available. The standard working pressure is 150 psi.
Dixon's line of dry-disconnect couplings is featured in the company's new Catalog #DPL-104. For more information or to receive a catalog, phone toll-free 800-355-1991 or contact Dixon, 800 High St, Chestertown MD 21620-1196.
