New Dry Disconnect Couplings from Dixon Promote Clean, Efficient Transfer of Chemicals, Solvents & Fuels
Chestertown, Md., April 18, 2005 - Dry disconnect couplings from Dixon Valve & Coupling Company are specially designed for the clean, efficient transfer of chemicals, solvents, fuels and hazardous materials. These couplings, available in stainless steel, aluminum or brass in sizes from 1_" to 4", allow for the easy connection and disconnection of hoses and pipelines - all while eliminating accidental spillage and product loss.
Engineered to be extremely user-friendly in its operation, each Dixon dry disconnect coupler features a built-in swivel that allows the operator to use a simple "push and turn" action to connect and start the flow of product. The valve will not open until the coupler and adapter are connected, thereby eliminating accidental flows. A similarly easy "turn and pull" action disconnects the coupler and stops the product flow. With this design, accidental spillage is impossible.
Dixon's dry disconnect design options include ANSI 3156 stainless steel, brass or aluminum housings, Hastelloy® C276 internal parts, Teflon® bushings, and Viton® seals. Alternative seals and other design options are also available to fulfill special customer needs. The couplings have a standard working pressure of 260 PSI for aluminum and 360 PSI for brass and stainless steel.
Dixon's line of dry disconnect couplings is featured in the company's Catalog #DPL105. For more information or to request a catalog, call toll-free (800) 355-1991.
