OPW Engineered Systems has brought to market the LYNX coupler to its line of terminal solutions.
The coupler incorporates a U-pin design that enables an operator to disassemble the couple in a matter of seconds. This design enables the operator to gain access to the internal components, perform maintenance and quickly put the coupler back in service.
Dave Morrow, director of products for engineered systems says: 'A single coupler might be responsible for the transfer of millions of gallons of fluid, so you want to shorten the service cycle as much as possible.'
Each LYNX coupler comes with a five-year warranty and it can extend the life of the wave spring as well as handle surge pressures up to 500 psi.
