HAMILTON, OHIO – May 5, 2023 - OPW Engineered Systems is excited to announce that it will be exhibiting in Booth No. 639 at the upcoming 2023 International Liquid Terminals Association (ILTA) Operating Conference & Trade Show, which will be held from May 22-24 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, TX.
At the ILTA Show, OPW will introduce its new Stop-Lok™ Multi-Application Coupler, which has been designed for use in connecting piping and hoses that are used in higher heat and pressure fluid-handling applications – with no tools required to complete the connection. The Stop-Lok is suitable for loading and unloading fluids in chemical, water, steam, hydrocarbon and heating-and-cooling applications with pressures up to 400 psi (27.6 bar). Ease of use is found in the Stop-Lok’s scalloped connection sleeve that allows for a hand-tight, tool-free connection that cannot be over-tightened, which lets the user know that “When It Stops, It’s Locked.”
“Union Fittings and Couplers are widely used as connection points between pipes and hoses and our new Stop-Lok coupler offers advanced features that enable it to provide improved efficiency and better performance,” said David Jacobson, Global Product Manager for OPW Engineered Systems. “We are excited to highlight and demonstrate this new technology during the ILTA Show, which is one of our most important trade-show appearances of the year.”
The Stop-Lok is the latest addition to OPW’s Total Terminal SolutionsTM product offering, which includes the most complete lines of Top & Bottom Loading Arms, Overfill & Grounding Equipment, Swivel Joints, Couplers and Safety Breakaways for use in hazardous and high-value fluid-transfer applications.
