Emco Wheaton strengthens their range of Break-Away couplings

KENT, United Kingdom -- Emco Wheaton is launching six new products, within its TODO range.
The new Marine Break-Away coupling is available in a 4 inches diameter and is a version of the tried and tested TODO Break-Away coupling that has been designed to withstand harsh marine conditions with its robust design.
Engineered to disconnect under straight pull force, separation takes place if a vessel moves too far. The valves, that are present in each half of the equipment, snap shut thereby minimizing any potential spill of liquids into the environment or loss of client product. The Marine Break-Away has a maximum working pressure of 25 bar.

The standard Break-Away coupling is now also available in 2 inches or 3 inches aluminium variants as well as a 4 inches stainless steel version. The 2 inches and 3 inches aluminium Break-Away couplings have a maximum working pressure of 10 bar with the 4 inches stainless steel capable of bearing pressure of 25 bar.

The final new addition to the Break-Away coupling range, for 2014, is the Collar Release. It is available in 2 inches and 3 inches sizes. The Collar Release is a completely different type of Break-Away which has been designed for use with loading arms and a hose, rather than two hoses.

The collar release breakaway is engineered to disconnect if the loading arms travels past the customer designated breakage position. The actual collar is linked via break cable to the loading arm so that once the break position is reached, the collar splits, closing the valves off. In addition to reducing any potential environmental impact from a break, the loading arm is safeguarded and potential costly downtime is avoided.

Both Collar Release couplings are capable of working at pressures of 40 bar.
Emco Wheaton has plans to release even more variants in the TODO Break-Away coupling range in 2015.
