#BASF closed transfer system eliminates operator exposure to chemicals #technology

BASF has developed a closed transfer system, EziConnect, designed to eliminate operator exposure to chemicals during filling of sprayers. The system also cleans cans and pipes during the process and is said to prevent environmental contamination.

 

The spray can opening mechanism is designed for clipping on to the system vertically. Emptying and washing of the can and pipes is said to be rapid.

 

Establishing an industry standard

BASF said it wants to establish the technology as an industry standard and make it available to spray distribution companies as well as competitors.
