EW Fuel Management supply the Safety Breakaway Coupling with cable control separation which is used to protect pipelines, loading arms and flexible hoses conveying liquids and gaseous media. Separation of the Breakaway Coupler may be required in the event of unintentional movement by road tanker or rail car, the drift of a barge or vessel during loading or unloading. As a result the product is contained in the line consequently protecting the environment.
How it works
The breakaway utilises a cable that is intentionally shorter than the hose or loading arm. It provides a controlled release between the vehicles and equipment during unintentional movements. Consequently, this controlled release allows total independence from any pull angle. In addition this breakaway operates independently from the line pressure Â therefore making this model both predictable and versatile.
Does not require special tools or replacement shear pins.
