Colder Products, a provider of controlled performance connections

has launched a new non-spill connection to meet smaller size
requirements in both the food processing and packaging industries.

The product, called the NS4 Series Non-Spill Coupling, features a non-spill shut-off valve that the company claims enhances operator safety and speeds connection time. The non-spill coupling provides a lightweight, durable, compact and economical replacement for expensive metal non-spill couplings, ball valves, and spill-prone fittings.

The NS4 is the second in a new series of non-spill couplings introduced by Colder Products. As a smaller version of the recently announced NSH Series Non-Spill Coupling, the ¼" NS4 utilises a different non-spill valve design that is ideal for use in ink handling applications, chemical delivery systems and electronic cooling systems.

"There is a pressing need to eliminate spills of even a few drops when customer safety, mess and clean-up, costly media loss or customer perception is an issue,"​ said Andy Hass, business unit manager, industrial markets at Colder Products. "The NS4 provides a non-spill, single-click connection that enables OEMs to increase the value of their equipment by combining a small coupling size with excellent flow characteristics."

As with all CPC connection solutions, the NS4 incorporates an easy-to-use thumb latch to allow for secure, single-handed operation. An audible 'click' confirms that a secure connection is made.

The main components of the NS4 are made out of glass-filled polypropylene with 316 stainless steel springs and EPDM or optional FKM o-ring seals, which provide high resistance to a wide variety of corrosive media. The NS4's olefinic overmoulding increases the durability of the connection and provides a better grip for users. The overmoulding is also used for colour coding, which provides instant visual differentiation of diverse media lines.

Colder Products​ claims that the new non-spill connection can withstand operating pressures from vacuum to 120 psig (8.3 bar) and temperatures from 32oF to 120oF (0oC to 49oC). The coupling features terminations of 3/8" OD PTF compression; 1/8", 1/4" and 3/8" ID hose barb; and 1/4" male NPT thread and 1/4" male BSPT thread. Mounting options include in-line, pipe thread, and sealing panel mount.
