Hydraulic Quick Connect-Disconnect Coupler
About the Hydraulic Quick Connect-Disconnect Coupler:
The Hydraulic Quick Connect-Disconnect Coupler is an automated solution for our Marine Loading Arms, guaranteeing a secure and efficient link to a ship. This hydraulic QCDC expedites seamless connections between the marine loading arm and the ship, utilising a hydraulic system for rapid coupling and uncoupling. The hydraulic mechanism ensures a swift and reliable attachment of the loading arm to the ship’s flange.
The hydraulic quick connect-disconnect couplers serve a vital role in averting environmental hazards and upholding operational safety. These couplers enable prompt and secure connections between loading arms and sea-bound transport, accelerating the efficient transfer of various medias.
In order to optimise the connection process, the flange is equipped with guide rings that precisely centre the ship’s flange between the hydraulic coupler, streamlining the operation and ensuring a steadfast connection. Unlike its manual counterpart, the hydraulic coupler eliminates the need for manual labour. This hydraulic system enables a hands-free operation, freeing up the workforce to focus on other essential business operations.
