Featured Product: Oil Transfer Containers by Des-Case Meets All Relevant Best-practice Standards
Des-Case is one of many major manufacturers whose products are available in Canada through Wainbee Limited, including an innovative oil transfer container – the first best-practice solution that isolates oil completely from the environment during transfers. This container is perfect for transferring small oil volumes, topping off reservoirs, and small-volume storage.
This Des-Case container is recommended for keeping oil clean and dry during storage and transfer to machinery with a maximum operating viscosity range of ISO VG 680, at 38 degrees Celsius.
Twenty-seven percent more volume
There are many advantages to using this oil transfer container. It isolates and protects oil according to best-practice standards with breathers and ISO B quick connects, and its trigger mechanism enables variable flow control. The square shape is another key benefit since square containers store 27 percent more volume per square foot than round ones do. This container from Wainbee prevents cross-contamination and offers easy lubricant identification with 11 colour-coding options and a tagging system; it also minimizes inventory management with modular, interchangeable spouts, collar rings, and pump caps as the sole colour-coded components.
Among the available options for this container are a dispensing lid, three sizes of spouts (five, eight, or 16 inches), and a pump lid. The container itself comes in three different sizes – four, seven, or ten liters. The dispensing lid and spout contain nylon, 304 stainless steel, steel, Buna-N, HDPE, and PTFE, while the pump lid contains both kinds of steel, fluoro-silicone, silicone, nylon, PVC, polyurethane, aluminum, vinyl, and HDPE, and the container body is made of HDPE. The container is recommended for mineral-based industrial oils and most synthetic oils; it will not react chemically with oil or additive packages.
Other notable product features include a trigger mechanism, for precise pour control and locking, and a port for the optional breather. The optional ½-inch ISO B quick-connect ports enhance the overall adherence to best practices, and the spout cap prevents contamination of oil during storage. The lubricant tagging system has two-by-three-inch colour-coding labels with a recommended colour and pattern tagging system.
