DRY-BREAK ® Systems are used in any application where the accidental spillage of liquids must be avoided. Emco Wheaton invented the term "DRY-BREAK ® " in the 1950s and it has become recognized in the industry as the leading brand of couplings that allow for spill-free disconnect of the two components. The two components are referred to as the "coupler" or "hose unit" and the "adapter" or "tank unit".

The combination of Emco Wheaton and TODO DRY-BREAK ® couplings gives the end user the world's greatest range of styles, materials, and working conditions.
