Industrial Breakaway Couplings are typically installed onto Loading arms and hose assemblies where at least one side is attached to a fixed point. Industrial Breakaway couplings are used to prevent pull away accidents, protect terminal and loading/unloading equipment and eliminate unwanted product release. The breakaway couplings has a diverted breaking point which will break at a determined break-load whereupon the internal valves will automatically close the valves on both sides hence the flow ceases. This will minimise down time, save money, equipment and the environment.
Operates independently of shut off safety systems and furthermore a does not require any external power sources.
These are also easy to reset on site by one person with minimal tools and training.
In addition to the above they have a very high flow rate / low pressure drop.
ANSI or Din Flanged
BSP or NPT Threaded
Combinations of the above can also be achieved
1″ to 12″
Aluminium or Stainless Steel
FKM, EPDM, FFKM and NBR
The Industrial Breakaway couplings can be use in a wide range of applications such as:
LPG, Butane, Propane, CO2 and LNG.
They can be also used for Diesel, Acids, Jet A1, Alcohols, bulk loading and un-loading, road tankers and process product transfer.
