CPC (Colder Products Company), provider of quick disconnect couplings and fittings for chemical handling and packaging, recently expanded its DrumQuik PRO dip-tube based, closed chemical dispensing connector system with the addition of the 70-mm drum insert.
The new drum insert fits drums and IBC totes most commonly found in Europe, China, Japan and elsewhere in Asia and, to a lesser extent, in North America that have either the BCS 70 x 6 mm or the BCS 70 x 5 mm bung thread form.
“The DrumQuik PRO rounds out the product offering so that we now offer a drum insert for virtually every common drum and IBC found anywhere in North and South America, Europe, Japan and throughout Asia,” said Thomas Braun, chemical and packaging business manager for CPC. “The hybrid thread design of the new drum insert allows it to connect with both 70 x 5 and 70 x 6 threads using a single product.”
The two thread forms are closely related yet differ by 1 mm in thread pitch. The 70-mm drum insert features a unique hybrid design and has a robust seal design that is located below the threads, allowing it to be used in higher pressure applications. Made from virgin FDA-grade HDPE, the new drum insert mates with all DrumQuik PRO and PUR dip-tubes and couplers.
The DrumQuik PRO system creates a closed media transfer system for general and high purity chemicals. Rugged and cost-effective DrumQuik dispensing systems minimize chemical exposure to the media and the fumes they generate and facilitate the delivery of chemicals from bulk transfer containers to end use applications in sealed and fume-free manner. DrumQuik has been tested with most common drums and IBC’s to applicable UN/DOT/BAM standards for use in the transport of Hazardous (HAZMAT) chemicals from the filling location to the end-user.
