Seal Kit Sealing Material for Extreme Temperatures
OPW Engineered Systems, manufacturer of systems for the safe and efficient loading and unloading of hazardous materials announced that the 1004D3 and 1004D4 models of its API Bottom-Loading Couplers are now available with a special “lo-temp” sealing material that has been designed to retain its sealing capabilities at extreme temperatures (Seal Material rated as low as -55°F/-48°C).
The seal material is also compatible with all gasoline, diesel and ethanol formulations and blends.
As temperatures drop, in many cases so does the sealing ability of many API Bottom-Loading Couplers. In the past, the only solution to leaking bottom-loading couplers in low-temperature environments was a very frustrating one – simply wait for the temperatures to rise.
However, OPW has put an end to this discouraging waiting game, specifically engineering its new lo-temp seals with a sub-zero leak protection that helps eliminate the concerns associated with cold-weather leaks.
The companys’ 1004D3 and 1004D4 Couplers provide users with a best-in-class performance by combining advanced engineering and ergonomic designs with the sub-zero weather protection of the lo-temp seal kit. Designed specifically to provide a faster connection during transfers and to significantly reduce liquid loss at disconnect, the 1004D3 and 1004D4 are built to mate with all 4-inch bottom-loading adaptors.
Both the 1004D3 and 1004D4 are made with API RP-1004 requirements, a unique Interlocking system, 5-cam design, smart seal and ergo handle for superior results. These next generation API Bottom-Loading Couplers, along with the special lo-temp seal kit, provide for a better performance.
