Disconnecting Fluid Lines
The Sixtube coupling from Colder Products Co., of St. Paul, Minn., has become more design-friendly with the addition of acetal shut-off valves to the insert side of the coupling. Therefore, shut-offs are now available on the body or insert side. Sixtube can disconnect up to six separate fluid lines, and the thumb latch allows this to be done at the push of a button. Ideal applications include semiconductor, analytical instrumentation, packaging, printing, photochemicals, sampling lines and chemical dispensing.
