Colder Products Company Launches New NS6 Series Non-Spill Couplings at Chem Show 2003

St. Paul, MN - November 19, 2003 - Colder Products Company (CPC), the leading provider of controlled performance connections to chemical, medical, industrial, and printing markets, introduces its new NS6 Series Non-Spill Coupling at Chem Show 2003, Javits Convention Center, New York City at booth 1767. The patent-pending NS6 features non-spill shut-off valves that enhance operator safety, speed connection time, and reduce cleaning procedures. The NS6's distinct non-spill valve design makes the product applicable for use in printing and labeling, chemical handling, electronic cooling, instrumentation, and medical applications. The non-spill coupling provides a lightweight, durable, compact and economical replacement for metal non-spill couplings, ball valves, and fittings.

"The NS6 achieves 40% more flow, withstands twice the pressure and results in less spillage as compared to CPC's polypropylene HFC-12 series," said Patrick Williams, Market and Product Planning Manager, CPC. "The product's non-spill functionality significantly reduces costly media loss, time-consuming clean up, and risk to operators associated with various media leaks and spills."

The NS6 is the third in a series of new non-spill couplings. It follows the recently released compact NS4 series and high-flow NSH series. The new non-spill coupling is made from glass-filled polypropylene with 316 stainless steel springs and EPDM or optional FKM o-ring seals, providing high resistance to a wide variety of corrosive media. The NS6's olefinic overmolding increases the durability of the connection and provides a better grip for users. The overmolding is also used for color-coding, which provides instant visual differentiation of diverse media lines.

As with all CPC connection solutions, the NS6 incorporates an easy-to-use thumb latch to allow for secure, single-handed operation. An audible "click" confirms that a secure connection is made.

The new non-spill connection can withstand operating pressures from vacuum to 120 psig (8.3 bar) and temperatures from 32°F to 120°F (0°C to 49°C). The coupling features terminations of 1/2" OD compression; 3/8" and 1/2" ID hose barb; and 1/2" male NPT thread and 1/2" male BSPT thread. Mounting options include in-line, pipe thread, and sealing panel mount.

The NS6 and other chemical fluid handling connections will be on demonstration at Booth #1767, The Chem Show, Jacob Javits Center in New York City, November 18-20, 2003.
