Exclusive Closure Supplier
Con-Tech is the exclusive closure supplier for Technocraft Industries (India) Ltd., an ISO 9002 certified worldwide industrial company known for manufacturing excellence, producing Tite-Seal™ plugs and Tite-Seal™ flanges, related 55-gallon steel drum closures and accessories, steel drum cap seals, steel drum plug gaskets and steel drum flange insertion dies.
Tite-Seal™ flanges (octagonal) and round plugs meet all U.S. DOT and U.N. standards and are completely interchangeable with other similar brands of drum closures. Standard Tite-Seal™ closures are electroplated with bright zinc and yellow passivated against corrosion. Tite-Seal closure linings are available in buff epoxy phenolic, tan phenolic epoxy, red phenolic, clear phenolic and green phenolic. Con-Tech stainless steel drum closures are in stock now and available in several options, including Tite Seal™ drum closures, machined stainless steel flanges and forged plugs and flanges for nitric acid drums. A variety of gaskets are available including Buna, EPDM, Polyirradrated, Teflon, and Viton.
Tite-Seal™ flanges can be installed with industry-standard insertion dies or with die sets which can be provided by Con-Tech. Installation of the Tite Seal™ bung plug by means of an insertion die is an economical alternative to welding flanges.
We supply the IBC industry with standard hex plugs and round weld flanges, which are available from stock. Buna, EPDM, Irradiated Polyethylene, Teflon, Viton, and White Neoprene gasket materials are available.
According to one research study, the IBC market is set to cross a US $10 billion market soon as the packaging industry shifts away from plastics and plastic-based composites, with 80% of the IBC market being the food and beverage, industrial chemical, and building and construction industries. Serious consideration needs to be given to the transit and storage of IBCs and there are complex rules governing these issues. But all agree that there are many benefits to IBC use. And the innovations in the IBC world keep coming.
Using the correct drum closures and accessories is critical as the area is strictly regulated. Organizations of manufacturers of reconditioned and new steel, plastic, and fiber drums as well as intermediate bulk containers work hard on their members’ compliance. Manufacturers of new industrial packaging and their North American suppliers do the same while emphasizing the importance of safety and reliability.
