OPW Engineered Systems, part of OPW's Fluid segment within Dover Corporation, has released its new Kamvalok Flat Dry Disconnect coupler and adaptor.
Engineered with all the same industry-leading features and benefits as traditional OPW Kamvaloks, the major technological advancement in the Kamvalok Flat is the incorporation of flattened connection points, including patent-pending smooth, flat-face poppets. This design effectively eliminates all cavities where liquid can pool and subsequently spill upon disconnection, reducing up to 85% of fluid loss at disconnect.
OPW Kamvalok dry disconnect couplers are ideal in liquid-transfer applications involving a variety of chemicals such as petroleum products, solvents, paint, lacquers, inks, adhesives, fatty acids, pharmaceuticals, soaps, detergents, ag-chemicals, caustics, and many acids, to name a few.
They feature easy-to-close stainless-steel Autolok locking arms and an industry-standard stainless-steel locking handle, which secures both the opened and closed positions to prevent accidental release or uncoupling. The Autolok locking arms also provide added protection with an automatic locking mechanism that is signaled by an audible, positive click, whereas uncoupling requires only an easy tug on the lock release. In addition, Kamvaloks feature vibration-resistant Twin-Kam arms.
The OPW Kamvalok Flat is available in aluminum and stainless steel, and offered in 1.5-, 2-, and 3-inch sizes. A variety of temperature ranges are also available.
