“The best way to minimize exposure when dispensing chemicals from bulk containers is with a closed system that eliminates the removal of the inserted dip-tube from the drum,” said Thomas Braun, business unit manager, chemical and packaging products, Colder Products Company. “With DrumQuik PRO, users easily dispense chemicals by removing a shipping plug and then locking the coupler in place. This eliminates the need to install, remove or clean a dip-tube, minimizing the potential for fluid or vapor contact while allowing fast changeovers.”
The DrumQuik PRO system is comprised of two components: a coupler and a drum insert assembly. The drum insert assembly contains a bung closure and dip-tube and can be shipped as part of a drum package, providing a cost-efficient alternative to open and semi-open dispensing systems.
No special tools are required to connect the coupler to the system. Clean-up and disposal are easier, because the low-cost drum insert and dip-tube are recyclable. The quick disconnect coupler can be easily rinsed and cleaned for reuse.
A built-in vent port allows a pressure feed connection, which speeds chemical flow and prevents release of harmful vapors. The vent port also allows for a blanket gas connection limiting chemical exposure to air, preventing oxidation of sensitive liquids, such as oils and fragrances, and reducing product waste.
Ideal for single-use applications, DrumQuik PRO is made from FDA-approved polyethylene material that is compatible with most general chemical uses, including food handling, fragrances and flavorings, paint and coatings, pharmaceuticals, industrial laundry and janitorial supply.
Colder Products Company will debut the DrumQuik PRO at PACK EXPO (Booth #E-5979) in Chicago, Oct. 29–Nov. 2, 2006. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with Colder experts and discuss the DrumQuik PRO chemical dispensing system for chemical and packaging industries.
