DrumQuik Universal Dispensing Adapter

See DrumQuik Universal Dispensing Adaptor (UDA) Products

DrumQuik Universal Dispensing Adaptors (UDA) are changing the world of chemical management. DrumQuik UDA are specifically designed for end-user applications. The DrumQuik UDA allows safer connections to drums and IBCs but can also be used with containers such as Nalgene caps and jerry cans with cap-style closures. Universal Dispensing Adaptors are also the preferred solution in applications where a dip-tube will be re-used or moved between multiple containers.

DrumQuik UDA mates with common containers, bung plugs and caps. The adapter ports enable simultaneous chemical extraction, venting or application of blanket gas. A third port can be used to recirculate priming chemical to the container in metering pump applications. DrumQuik 3-Port UDA facilitates easy, spill-free drum changeouts and offers unprecedented flexibility in a closed system for safely dispensing chemicals. Optional system components including foot valves, air filters and vent check valves are also available.
