A closed dispensing system is specifically designed to minimize exposure during transport, dispensing and disposal of chemicals or liquid consumables. DrumQuik closed dispensing systems incorporate an integrated closure (bung plug) and dip-tube assembly that is shipped as part of the container package, eliminating the need to remove and re-install the dip-tube at point-of-use. This makes closed dispensing possible. In addition, the drum insert assembly can be reused but it is so cost effective that it can be treated as part of a single-trip disposable package.
Closed dispensing systems greatly minimize the potential for hazardous chemical and vapor exposure. OSHA and other safety initiatives are driving the trend toward closed-system chemical handling, requiring that media be transported from container to point-of-use in a closed manner. The safest way to remove chemicals from a rigid container is from the top while the container is vertical, using a closed dispensing system. DrumQuik dispensing systems are designed to maximize chemical handling safety in this type of environment. Closed systems also protect valuable media and consumables from contamination during transport and dispensing. Additional safety features are available for increased protection.
