Drum Closures & Accessories: Con-Tech International has been the exclusive supplier of Tite-Seal brand drum closures since 1987. Today we are one of the leading suppliers of closures in the U.S.
Tite-Seal Plugs and Flanges: Tite Seal drum closures are manufactured by Technocraft Industries Limited (India). They meet all US DOT and UN standards. Standard closures are electroplated with bright zinc and yellow passivated against corrosion. We also offer lined plugs and flanges available in buff epoxy phenolic, tan phenolic, red phenolic epoxy, clear phenolic, and green phenolic.
Tite-Seal Nylon Plugs: Our nylon plugs are FM (Factory Mutual) approved. As a safety feature, nylon melts when exposed to heat and relieves pressure from the inside the drum. Nylon plugs are available with poly-irradiated, EPDM, and Buna gaskets.
Tite-Seal Capseals: Steel and Plastic Cap Seals offer maximum protection of drum contents. They are tamper evident for security purposes.
Tite-Seal Can Seals: Can Seal closures fit both metal and plastic tops. They fit on a large opening of 2 3/8” (63 mm) without registry, allowing fast and efficient filling. They are suitable for pails up to 5 gallons.
Tite Seal Poly Plugs: We offer 2” NPS and 2” buttress threaded polyethylene plugs for plastic drums. They are available with EPDM gaskets. A vented plug is also available.
Leak Lock Plugs: The Leak Lock system is a two-piece system which is used when the octagon flange gasket has been incinerated during the burning operation. The Leak Lock system alleviates the problem of alignment, assuring a quality seal. This system is the most effective in the market to prevent flange leakage due to drum incineration.
Gaskets: Gaskets for TITE SEAL plugs are available in Buna, EPDM, Poly-irradiated, Teflon, and Viton. Gaskets for Leak Lock Plugs are available in Buna only.
Paint Caps: Paint caps cover the drum flanges and shield the inside of the drum from overspray during painting. We have threaded and unthreaded caps for both vertical and horizontal drum transfer in the production line.
Rust Inhibitor: A solvent based formula used to prevent metal from rusting - very effective for reconditioned drums.
Stainless Steel Drum Closures
Tite-Seal Stainless Steel Closures: Tite-Seal stainless steel drum closures are used by manufacturers of stainless steel drums. Gasket options for plugs include buna, EPDM, polyethylene, white neoprene and teflon.
Forged Stainless Steel Closures: 2" and 3/4" forged plugs and flanges are available in 304 and 316 stainless steel and used primarily on drums containing acids and other corrosive products.
- either 8 TPI (acid) or 11 1/2 TPI (fine) on 2" closures
- 14 TPI on 3/4" closures
Machined Stainless Steel Flanges: Machined weld-on flanges are used with Tite Seal plugs. Con-Tech's weld able drum flanges are used on a variety of stainless steel drums designed to contain food products, fragrances, chemicals and other high value products.
Voyager Ball Valves and Tote Tank Components: Con-Tech is the sole source for Voyager IBC valves and fittings. For over 15 years, the Voyager LN-190 ball valve has been the industry standard for stainless steel totes and is used by OEMs such as Hoover, Custom Metal craft, and Snyder. It has a reputation for reliability that is shared by other tote components with proven track records, including IBC lids, gaskets, elbows, cam locks, etc.
Voyager Bolted Tank Fittings: The round shape, investment cast construction and tight bolt pattern make this the most durable and leak-free stainless steel fitting for poly tanks on the market. Our bolted tank fittings are available with EPDM or Viton gaskets and are assembled using 316 stainless steel studs, nuts and lock washers.
Global Sourcing of Metalworking Parts for OEMs: Through local warehousing, on-time delivery and ensuring quality workmanship, we have developed an extensive customer base that includes companies in the following industries: plastic and stainless steel container manufacturing, water treatment and filtration, air receiver and compressor manufacturing, chemical storage tank manufacturing, material handling equipment, marine hardware and many others.
