OPW Kamvalok 1700D dry disconnect
couplings virtually eliminate spillage

OPW Engineered Systems, a division of OPW Fluid Transfer Group, announced that its Kamvalok 1700D Series dry disconnect couplings have been designed to provide for total closed-loop loading. Closed-loop loading protects people and property from dangerous and costly exposure by keeping hazardous liquids and vapors in-line and out of the environment.
Specifically manufactured to automatically shut off in case of an accidental disconnection of the coupling and adaptor, 1700D Series couplers feature a spring-loaded poppet action design that virtually eliminates spillage of any residual liquid contained in transfer lines after disconnection. Reliable and easy to operate, these couplers have been manufactured in compliance with quality standards of design, materials, and construction. Kamvalok 1700D Series couplers feature a cam-and-groove design that makes connection and disconnection smooth and easy, and an open/close lever action ensures that liquid flow can only begin once the coupling and adaptor are securely coupled. This lever action also provides for smooth opening and closing, even during high-pressure applications.
Additional features of 1700D Series couplers include locking operating handle and cam arms; a 360-degree orientation so the coupler can be connected in any orientation onto the adaptor; and a dual protection design, which provides automatic closure from both directions: the coupler and the adaptor. Kamvalok 1700D Series couplers are suitable for handling petroleum products, solvents, ag-chemicals, vegetable oils, detergents, and many acids and caustics. In addition, these couplers are used at transfer points where product loss is unacceptable, including during paint, lacquers, inks, adhesives, fatty acids, pharmaceuticals, liquid soaps, and other liquid products applications.
