The Countdown to NTTC and NAHAD is On!

As a continuation of our March blog, we are spreading more news regarding the upcoming shows we will be attending at the end of this month. The NTTC Conference and NAHAD Convention are shaping up to be significant events both within the industry and our company specifically. This year is going to be a personal milestone as we will be celebrating our 65th year in business! Coinciding our celebration, PT Coupling will be exhibiting our industry knowledge and top-quality products on display at each expo.

Digging beyond annual meet ups and exhibits, we appreciate both organizations because they focus on integrity and quality within the industry. These are areas in which our team regularly strives to excel. Today, PT Coupling is eager to spread our core values to our customer base and beyond.

With over 800 delegates attending each conference this April, we’re excited to meet the new faces that will be coming by our displays this year. Make sure to jot down our booth numbers before you head out the door! At NTTC you will find our crew at booth #68. At NAHAD swing by the NAHAD Showcase May 3rd – booths #71 and #72 for the latest updates. Now to break down both events…

When stopping by our NTTC booth you will find our newest API Load/Unload Adapters which are designed with the operator in mind. We would also like to highlight their speed and safety capabilities. With our adapters you will notice improved flow, a rotatable nose ring, a quick release handle and an ergonomic handle. Use them as an alternative for you tanker loading and unloading needs. In addition, we will be featuring our newest line of grooved pipe couplings, as shared in detail on our March blog.

By visiting our NAHAD booth you will be able to explore our American made quick connect/disconnect couplings and replacement parts. We supply the following markets: petroleum, industrial, chemical, and food processing with top-shape products that they know they can rely on. Experts will be on hand to answer any questions and find solutions to any difficult applications you might have.

Choosing to operate a manufacturing company in the U.S. is a decision we are proud of every day, as many attending each event will be able to understand. Our products are produced by following good manufacturing practices, adhering to environmental standards, employing our neighbors, building community, and providing jobs for the next generation. It isn’t always easy, but we are extremely proud to say that our products are U.S. made!

Check out these products and more at NTTC, April 24th-26th at the Marriot Marquis San Diego and NAHAD, April 30th-May 4th at The Broadmoor, Colorado Springs, CO.

We hope to see you at both shows and remember to come back for our next blog post where we’ll wrap up the conferences and give you an inside look at our Hospitality event!

PT Coupling Kicks off 2016 with Outstanding New Products

At PT Coupling, we believe in the power of ingenuity and that there is always room for improvement. We wouldn’t be a leading manufacturer of quick connect/disconnect couplings without the drive to improve, perfect, and innovate.

We are kicking-off 2016 the right way – by introducing two new products that we are adding to our lineup. The first new item is an expansion of our C50 external crimp system by adding a flange by the hose shank. The C50 style Progrip External Crimp System Flange X Hose Shank is available in 4 unique fitting styles manufactured from 316 stainless steel:

• PFFC50: A specially designed floating ANSI 150# pipe flange by C50 style hose shank stub end that allow the floating flange to slide over a crimped sleeve or ferrule. Because the hose assembler has the option of sliding the flange down the hose, the crimp machine doesn’t have to open up to clear the flange diameter. Available in 1”, 1 ½”, 2”, 3”, and 4”.
• PFC50: An ANSI B16.5 class 150# pipe flange by C50 style external crimp hose shank which is a fixed pipe flange by the hose shank. Available in 1”, 1 ½”, 2”, 3”, 4”, and 6”.
• TBC50: A C50 style hose shank stub end designed to fit a standard 150# ANSI lap joint pipe flange. Available in 2”, 3”, and 4”.
• TTFC50: A TTMA tank truck flange by C50 style external crimp hose. This is a fixed tank truck flange by hose shank. Available in 3” and 4”.

The expanded family of C50 external crimp system will offer another level of ease and safety to users in the petroleum, chemical, food, and industrial sectors.

Our second new product introduction that will improve liquid and dry transfer applications is an Aluminum Grooved Pipe Coupling. These couplings are a cost effective alternative to heavy duty grooved pipe couplings for use in applications that do not require high pressure. The integrated stud bolts and nuts enable quick and easy assembly and the unique profile allows expansion during installation and protects the seal from damage. Grooved pipe couplings are available in 3 sizes:

Grooved Pipe Coupling Feb. 2016• 2” with rating up to 400 psi
• 3” with rating up to 200 psi
• 4” with rating up to 150 psi

Aluminum Grooved Pipe Couplings are also available with a choice of Viton® or Buna seals.

These products can be found in our online catalog, through our mobile friendly app, and are coming to our website!

Keep an eye out for our next blog where we will tell you about our upcoming trip to the Western Petroleum Marketers Association (WPMA) convention. We’ll be exhibiting in Booth #1500 and will provide you with further information coming soon!
