A liquid dispensing system with a radio frequency identification
(RFID) tag allows food and beverage companies to cost-effectively
manage the safety and reliability of their products during
processing, its manufacturer claims.

The Disposable Universal Dispensing Coupler (DUDC) bag-in-box fitting from Colder Products can be used to dispense condiments, sauces, beverage syrup, and dairy food products.

The DUDC fitment has a non-spill feature that virtually eliminates costly spills while providing a sanitary seal, the company claims. A foil seal further protects product contents and provides evidence of possible tampering.

The company's IdentiQuik model of the DUDC incorporates an RFID tag in the closure. Before the final connection of the body and insert is made, the IdentiQuik tag automatically sends product data to a reader to help prevent misconnections.

"Manufacturers can use this feature to ensure brand integrity, improve quality control and automatically calibrate dispensing equipment for the fluid being dispensed,"​ Colder Products stated.

The DUDC incorporates a thumb latch. An audible "click" indicates when a secure connection is made. The DUDC coupling body is available with a variety of standard hose barb sizes including the 3/8" size for connection with common tubing.

A 38mm fitment is designed to fit volume pack bags with standard 38mm fitment spouts. DUDC fitment materials include polypropylene, FDA Buna, EPDM, Silicone seals, and 316 stainless steel springs.
