World's safest coupling prevents accidental disconnects for chemical, petrochemical and pharmaceutical applications
OPW Engineered Systems, part of OPW's Fluid segment within Dover Corporation (NYSE:DOV), has launched the LQC Series Transfer Loading Safety Quick Coupling under its Hiltap™ brand. The patented design of the LQC (Locking Quick Connect) Series automatically prevents accidental disconnects when pressure is in the line. Plus, the LQC's advanced engineering and rugged durability allow the LQC to safely conect fluids for a wide range of temperatures and pressures – in-plant, through plant and out-of-plant.
"The LQC is going to replace the cam & groove coupling," said Dave Morrow, Director of Products for Engineered Systems. "The safety, speed, temperatures, pressures, number of applications – the LQC is probably the best product from Hiltap and maybe even OPW Engineered Systems."
Benefits of the Hiltap LQC Series by OPW Engineered Systems:
- NO ACCIDENTAL DISCONNECTS – Patented design prevents an operator from disconnecting when a minimum of 5 psi is in the line*
- Simple Operation – Connects and disconnects with a quarter turn by hand, no special tools required
- Multi-Application Ready – Excels in the transfer of oil, LPG, lubricants, acids, paints, ammonia and more
The LQC is now available. For ordering information or to schedule a product demonstration, please contact OPW Engineered Systems. To view an animation of the LQC, visit our YouTube channel.
