Spillfree & safe
ASK®-CI Couplings provide spill-free connections and disconnections which do not expose operators or the environment to any of the transported material.
Fast loading processes
You can also uncouple the ASK®-CI with a line which is still filled with transported media, which makes for a much faster loading process. The easy coupling operation also reduces the time required to make a connection. This is substantially enhanced by the ergonomically optimized hand wheel, providing a simple operation, in comparison with a conventional grab handle.
The flow-optimized design of the ASK®-CI was created using the finite element method (FEM), and then validating through flow tests. This minimizes pressure loss and maximizes the delivery flow of our Dry Break Coupling.
Integrated swivel joint
The integrated swivel joint on the female side of the Dry Break minimizes mechanical stress and prevents torque pressure in the pipe. Also, the swivel joint provides a continuously smooth rotation over time, due to the Dry Break’s intelligent design. For this reason, the ASK®-CI requires very little maintenance.
Greater safety with the ARTA pin
The ARTA pin provides an additional safety measure: Located on the female side of the Dry Break, it engages the male adaptor to prevent any unintentional disconnection of the coupling.
Error-free coupling using mechanical lockout
We offer the option of a mechanical lockout for ARTA Dry Break couplings. This avoids accidental coupling with a connector carrying a different substance than that intended, thereby averting combining the transported products in error.
Fully verified by international certification entities
The ASK®-CI is a globally approved safety coupling that has been certified by recognized international approval entities. Consequently, no safety-related reservations exist surrounding its use.
