Emergency Break-Away Coupling for Bottom Hose Loading Applications
Emco Wheaton has introduced a TODO break-away coupling incorporating a TTMA (Tank Truck Manufacturers Association) flange, for the bottom loading of road tankers.
The addition of the 4" TTMA TODO break-away to the loading operation of road tankers gives operators peace of mind knowing that if a drive-away incident occurs, the break-away will disconnect and minimize product lost to virtually zero.
The API coupler and the loading arm will not be damaged and the break-away has the capability of being re-set on site with no need to buy a new piece of equipment or send the break-away to the manufacturer for re-set.
The TTMA flange break-away can be installed on a wide range of bottom hose loading distribution loading arms.
