The new NS4 Series Non-Spill Coupling features a non-spill shut-off valve that reportedly enhances operator safety and speeds connection time. The non-spill coupling is said to provide a lightweight, durable, compact, and economical replacement for expensive metal non-spill couplings, ball valves, and spill-prone fittings. As the second product in a new series of non-spill couplings introduced by the company, the new 1/4-in coupling is smaller than the previous model and utilizes a different non-spill valve design that is said to be ideal for use in ink-handling applications, electronic cooling systems, and medical devices.
The NS4 incorporates a 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 are said to provide high resistance to a wide variety of corrosive media. The coupling's olefinic overmolding reportedly increases the durability of the connection and provides a better grip for users.
