Tantaline, a producer of tantalum surface alloys for valves, fittings, instrumentation, and custom products in hot acid environments, recently announced an alliance with PT Coupling, a manufacturer of cam- and groove-style hose couplings. The relationship is said to provide those who work with hot acids (including hydrochloric acid and sulfuric acid), highly corrosive chemicals, and/or whose applications require superior corrosion performance a higher performing, readily available, and cost competitive alternative to specialty metal couplings.
As part of the new alliance, PT Coupling’s entire line of stainless steel cam and groove couplings, adapters, and specialty fittings are now available to be Tantaline-treated. In this process, the part is treated with Tantaline’s tantalum vapor technology.
“Tantaline’s collaboration with PT Coupling is great news for the coupling industry. The corrosive nature of many applications necessitates the use of specialty metals, but cost and quantity requirements can often make it challenging for engineers and manufacturers,” says Dean Gambale, CEO, Americas for Tantaline. “Tantaline/PT Coupling products are not only the most corrosive resistant coupling commercially available; they can also help reduce costs, increase productivity, and extend the life of couplings in severe environments.”
