0509ifhFire Safety Kit For Fluid Storage & Dispensing

IFH Group, manufacturer of storage and dispensing systems for industrial fluids, oils and lubricants, is offering a fire safety kit for customers who need to be in compliance with strict fire safety regulations. It replaces the standard PVC sight gauge on the front of the containers with a fire-resistant glass sight gauge equipped with ball check fittings at both ends to prevent any product spillage if the glass should break. Underneath the containers, the standard PVC hose is replaced with a steel hose that connects to a fusible link valve with a spring-activated handle. If the temperature reaches 165 F (73.9 C), the handle is automatically triggered to shut off fluid leakage. According to IFH, this kit can be supplied with new storage and dispensing systems or as a retrofit.

goatthroatPumps For 275-Gallon Totes

GoatThroat™ Pumps are  well suited for use with 275-gallon totes, providing a safe way to dispense liquids without raising the tote for gravity feed. A standpipe attaches easily to the existing fitting on the tote. Small amounts of pressure (4 psi) are added to the standpipe, rather than the whole container. According to the manufacturer, GoatThroat Pumps can handle anything, delivering liquids with no spills or leaks and providing a safe and clean alternative to standard tote dispensing. Made in America, these products meet RoHS and US FDA food safe requirements.
