Coupling is designed to minimize spillage and damage associated with pull away incidents.
Typically used in ship-to-offshore platform and ship-to-ship product transfer operations
Designed to be installed within a hose string where the coupling will have a length of hose attached to both sides
Coupling automatically senses an excessive load, closes the valves and disconnects
Release is executed when force causes bolts to break
316 Stainless Steel body
How It Works
The safety break-away valve consists of two halves, each with a valve that has an O-ring seal. When the safety break-away couplings separate, it allows the valves to close. The two valves close rapidly, minimizing exposure to personnel and the environment.
Safety break-away couplings have three external break bolts. In the case of axial tension all of the bolts take up the force corresponding to the break force on the hose with a safety margin.
