    KLAW Marine Breakaway Couplings protect assets, personnel, reputation and also the environment during offshore transfer operations
    Marine Breakaway Couplings minimises risks in offshore transfer
    The KLAW Marine Breakaway Coupling provides an identified and safe parting point inside the hose transfer system. When tensile forces exceed predetermined tolerances, the Marine Breakaway Coupling activates.
    The KLAW Marine Breakaway Coupling then delivers two distinct security measures. An example may be the closing of the flow of the media being transferred; second is allowing separation of the hose transfer system. Separation relieves the hose transfer system and minimises likelihood of damage and spillage.

    Minimising risk during offshore transfer
    Activation may be brought on by events or situations that may prove disastrous without proven and vital the main transfer system. Events including vessel movement, storms and pressure surge could compromise hose transfer systems and damage assets, trouble for personnel, contamination of the environment and extended downtime. This may cause disruption of operation, extensive clean-up costs, litigation and damaged reputation. The KLAW Marine Breakaway Coupling is thus a crucial part of maintaining a reliable offshore transfer system.

    Typical events
    Vessel movement and lack of Dynamic Positioning (DP).
    Pressure Surge: Attributable to inadvertent downstream valve closure elsewhere inside system or over-pressurisation. The activation setting is pre-determined to match the operating conditions.
    Performance boasting

    Double closure on activation

    Every time a KLAW Marine Breakaway Coupling activates, the Flip-Flap Valve mechanism closes on both the upstream and downstream flow inside the hose transfer system. This minimises spill on both sides of the hose transfer separation.
    Instantaneous closure
    Spill on activation is minimised with the instantaneous closure of the KLAW Flip-Flap Valve mechanism.
    100% shut-off of flow
    The KLAW Flip-Flap Valve mechanism provides 100% closure and thus 100% shut-off of both upstream and downstream flow.
    Minimum headloss
    The KLAW Flip-Flip Valve is built to deliver minimum headloss a lot more the locked open position inside the Breakaway Coupling. This gives the coupling to produce transfer efficiencies as well as minimising the danger of spills.
    Reliable performance inside marine environment
    The KLAW Marine Breakaway Coupling is made specifically to stand up to those bending moments and torsional forces expected from floating wave motions and also the rigours of the marine environment. Design for the KLAW Marine Breakaway Coupling therefore prevents premature activation of the unit and protects the Breakstuds from fatigue.
