Colder Products Company, the leading provider of quick disconnect couplings and fittings for plastic tubing, announces its new NS1 Series quick disconnect couplings. The smallest plastic non-spill quick disconnect coupling available on the market today, the NS1 provides a secure, reliable connect and disconnect in a user-friendly, compact footprint.
NS1 Series couplings include non-spill shutoff valves that ensure drip-free disconnects. The drybreak style design of the NS1 provides ultra-low air inclusion, minimizing contaminants and eliminating the need to purge air bubbles from systems. With its intuitive, ergonomic thumb latch, the NS1 provides users the “Colder Click” and confidence a reliable connection has been made. In addition, the connection can be made with minimal alignment, and allows the tubing to rotate freely without kinking or twisting, unlike many threaded connections.
“As devices become smaller and the level of fluid flow accuracy and precision continues to increase, the need for a connector sized for these applications becomes obvious,” says Jim Brown, business unit manager, medical markets. “The non-spill technology in this tiny connector provides the opportunity for a truly closed system and a cleaner, safer connection for small tubing diameters where space is at a premium.”
The NS1 Series couplings are constructed from polypropylene and PEEK® materials that ensure reliable strength and chemical compatibility for a wide range of applications. Available for precise applications with tubing sizes less than 1/8-inch, NS1 Series quick disconnect couplings are ideal for applications within medical diagnostics and In Vitro Diagnostics (IVD), printing and ink handling industries or any market requiring an easy-to-use connector for small tubing.
