QC-System Introduction

Introduction

Hazards of conventional container emptying.

The consequences when handling chemicals using conventional drum pumps, self-made suction lances or even just with tubes put into the container can be serious: hazardous substances continuously outgassing, drips when inserting and removing and the ever-present risk of contact with the chemical that is always associated with injury to operators, damage to production equipment, and sometimes even leading to building damage. Even totes with integrated ball valves do not stay non-drip for ever – no wonder because even a high-grade industrial valve costs more today than a standard tote with pre-mounted valve....

Safe, clean and flexible – it's that simple.

The clever, complete system

Over the decades, the QC-System from AS has developed into one of the world's leading dispensing systems for liquid chemicals. Not without reason. QC is more than just a simple Quick-Connect system; it is a precision tool manufactured from high-purity plastics for a versatile range of applications. Suitable for acids, alkalis and solvents – even aggressive and highly flammable products. Entirely free of metal and therefore immune to corrosion. The AS QC-System is primarily a sophisticated, highly flexible adapter system for simultaneous dispensing and ventilation in a closed circuit, which protects and takes care of handlers and the environment alike. It can be integrated into the supply chain perfectly. A clever, complete modular system with over 100,000 variants for small operations and large companies.

Clean delivery: Thanks to the integrated dip tube

Your chemicals are delivered by the chemicals supplier with dip tubes already installed in the containers. Ensuring there is no contact with the liquid – for drip-free connection.

× 2.

Quick connection: Thanks to the coding system that prevents product mix-ups

Click into place, screw tight, job done. The patented pin-hole coding system with clear medium assignment reliably prevents
product mix-ups.

Emission-free dispensing: Thanks to integrated ventilation

No uncontrolled escape of gases: Dispensing in closed circuits with safe ventilation via check valves, particle filters or spiral tubing. Practical: The second drum opening can remain sealed.

× 4.

Spill-free disconnection: Thanks to integrated check valves

No more spillage when disconnecting: The various shut-off valves in the dispense heads (e.g automatic check valves) remain tightly and reliably sealed.

Features

Dispense Heads for every application

A ready-to-use system for every application – from simple sample dispensing and practical mobile systems to high-flow versions. Also designed for automated processes.

Custom-made and preinstalled

For virtually every length, for every container. Over 1000 standard variants. Optional bellows-type length compen-
sator for virtually complete emptying. In addition, the dip tubes are also pre-installed in the containers by the chemical
supplier. Safe, simple and clean.

Customer Experiences

GKN Aerospace Sweden develops and manufactures advanced engine parts for aircraft as well as spacecraft. We also do engine maintenance and overhaul. Some parts go through our etching and pickling plant in which we use a process solution that consist of a combination of Nitric acid and Hydrofluoric acid.

Since safety, health and environment are key issues to our business we have been looking for a safe way to add Hydrofluoric acid into our process tanks. Our supplier recommended us to get in contact with AS Strömungstechnik, and that's how we found out about the QC-System (Quick Connect System). We have used the system for about a year and it works beyond expectation. The system performs really well so we have plans to expand its use further to other processes and chemicals.

BLÜCHER Metal A/S produces Drainage Systems in Stainless Steel sold under the brand name “BLÜCHER”. All our products go through our Pickling Plant where we use mixed acids containing HNO3 and HF. We have a high focus on Safety and Environment therefore we have been looking for a more safe system for pumping the Pickling Acids from IBC to the bathes, especially when changing from one empty IBC to a new one. For continuous dozing we need to pump to three different bathes at the same time, but not necessarily in the same amounts.

After some search and help from our acid supplier we found the QC-System (Quick Connect System) from AS Strömungstechnik. AS solved the problem for us. As a supplement we also have bought and implemented a Quick Connect System for high speed dozing for use when we set a new pickling bath. We have been using the system for some months now and the operators are very pleased with it. They feel safer which was the goal of the project from start.

Agfa-Gevaert produces in their site in Heultje (Westerlo – Belgium) fine chemicals which are used especially for the manufacture of films. To produce those chemicals many ingredients (liquids and solids) are needed.

Because of the new regulations imposed by ECHA (European Chemical Agency) concerning SCC (Strictly Controlled Conditions), transport of intermediates (solid or liquid) into a reactor had to be executed in a closed system. Therefore, Agfa had to look for a system to follow those new legislation.

Concerning the use of intermediates in a liquid state, Agfa uses now the QC-System (Quick Connect System) of AS Strömungstechnik (AS) to empty all kind of drums (plastic, metal, composite) in different volumes.

AS is a recommended company because they can produce in function of the demand of the customer followed by an excellent service afterwards. They made us very happy with their way of working and we wish them therefore many clients in the future.

Semiconductor / Solar

The clever, complete system for the semiconductor and solar industry. For better protection and more efficient processes.

The main focus of the production of semiconductors and solar cells was also the basic premise of AS when developing the QC-System: absolute protection of handlers and the environment from chemicals and, at the same time, the protection of high-purity chemicals from contamination. Due to our high purity plastics and our high standards towards cleanness, our products meet the critical requirements towards purity of the semiconductor industry.

Pharmaceuticals / Foodstuffs

Ultrapure plastics enable a cleaner supply of chemicals and the flexible connection options can be seamlessly integrated into existing systems. Specially developed versions made from stainless steel also enable the compliant handling of solvents in the pharmaceutical and food industries.

Industry

The handling of corrosive and aggressive chemicals is a critical part of many production steps in chemical process industries, be it surface treatment of metals, etching of glas or manufacturing of adhesives. Therefore, it is necessary to ensure the full protection of operators and the environment from these chemicals – from the first process step onwards.
