Emco Wheaton launches new break-away coupling

Ontario, Canada-based Emco Wheaton, a supplier of fluid transfer systems that operates within the Engineered Products Group of Gardner Denver Inc, has introduced the TODO emergency break-away coupling for bottom loading applications. The new coupling was designed to help eliminate damages and risk of spillage while ensuring operators are protected against drive-away incidents.

The TODO 4” aluminium break-away has been specifically adapted for bottom loading arm applications with the addition of a TTMA flange. Not only can the device be applied on new loading arms, it also means the break-away can be retrofitted to bottom hose loading arms that currently incorporate this type of flange in their construction.

The addition of the flange and use of the break-away coupling ensures that should a drive-away incident occur, the break-away will disconnect and minimize risk of product loss.  Equally important, the break-away would take the force of the incident thereby protecting the API coupler and loading arm.  By keeping the design concept simple, the break-away coupler can be re-set on site after an event with an easy to install kit so any downtime is reduced.
