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 offers an identified and safe parting point in the hose transfer system. When tensile forces exceed predetermined tolerances, the Marine Breakaway Coupling activates. The KLAW Marine Breakaway Coupling then delivers two distinct safety features. The foremost is the closing in the flow in the media being transferred; next is allowing separation on the hose transfer system. Separation relieves the hose transfer system and minimises probability of damage and spillage.

Events for example vessel movement, storms and pressure surge could compromise hose transfer systems and cause damage to assets, problems for personnel, contamination from the environment and extended downtime. This may bring about disruption of operation, extensive clean-up costs, litigation and damaged reputation. The KLAW Marine Breakaway Coupling is thus an important part of maintaining the best offshore transfer system.
Typical events Vessel movement and loss in Dynamic Positioning (DP). Pressure Surge: Attributable to inadvertent downstream valve closure elsewhere in the system or over-pressurisation. The activation setting is pre-determined geared to the operating conditions. Performance and has

Double closure on activation
Every time a KLAW Marine Breakaway Coupling activates, the Flip-Flap Valve mechanism closes upon the upstream and downstream flow in the hose transfer system. This minimises spill upon sides on the hose transfer separation. Instantaneous closure Spill on activation is minimised by 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 Breakaway Coupling. This permits the coupling to produce transfer efficiencies together with minimising the potential risk of spills. Reliable performance within the marine environment The KLAW Marine Breakaway Coupling is designed specifically as much as those bending moments and torsional forces expected from floating wave motions and also the rigours of the marine environment. The appearance of the KLAW Marine Breakaway Coupling therefore prevents premature activation on the unit and protects the Breakstuds from fatigue.
