TODO Safety Break-Away|Emco Wheaton

By: Emco Wheaton  06-Dec-2011

The safety BA coupling is designed specifically to minimise spillage and damage associated with drive/pull away incidents when loading/unloading e.g. tank trucks.

The Safety Break-Away coupling operates independently of shut off safety systems and does not require an external power source.

The coupler automatically senses an excessive load, closes the valves and then allows disconnection.


  • High flow rate / low pressure drop
  • Valves in both halves close automatically before the main fluid seal releases to atmosphere
  • Ultra compact design
  • Encapsulated shear bolts
  • Operates independently of shut off safety systems and does not require an external power source
  • Will release at any angle of pull
  • Marine midhose versions available
  • Easy to re-set on site with one person

  • Exceptionally high flow rate / low pressure drop
