With more than 30 years of experience transporting oil, gas, and petrochemicals TODO is especially proud of the TODO-MATIC product range.
The TODO-MATIC® DRY-BREAK® coupling is one of the first of its kind. It was one of the pioneering solutions to introduce the NATO STANAG 3756 standard. When customers ask for DRY-BREAK® couplings for their projects, they often refer to the products as "TODO's". The TODO-MATIC® product range is precisely what they mean.
This coupling is designed to handle the most demanding applications, from potable water to hydrochloric acid. The TODO-MATIC® coupling has provided customers around the world with safe and easy means of transferring valuable or dangerous products.
Trusted around the world to transfer highly valuable and volatile products in the most testing conditions. Loading and off-loading from the road, rail, offshore rig supply, or ship, TODO-MATIC® sets the standard for the industry.
TODO-MATIC® DRY-BREAK® Couplings are available in the following formats:
1" (DN25), 2" (DN50), 2.5" (DN65), 3" (DN80), 4" (DN100), 6" (DN150)
TODO couplings can be purchased with an almost unlimited choice of O-ring grades to suit a wide range of applications, however the list below features our most commonly used:
Note: Kalrez & Viton are Registered™ of DuPont, and Chemraz is a Registered™ of Greene Tweed
Working Temperature Range: -20°C to +80°C (-4°F to +176°F)
(See 'Special Options' tab for more details on applications outside of this range)
TODO is committed to providing the highest quality products, and so the materials of construction of TODO-MATIC® DRY-BREAK couplings are specifically selected for the best possible performance in the widest possible range of applications:
TODO can provide a wide variety of caps and plugs for Tank and Hose Units respectively, in a range of materials and sizes.
TODO caps are designed to keep debris away from the key connection areas during periods of non-use. They are not pressure tight - please see our Safety Pressure Tight Caps product section for full details.
Cap and Plug Sizes and Materials:
1" (DN25): Aluminium, Brass, Rubber, Stainless Steel
2" (DN50): Aluminium, Brass, Rubber, Stainless Steel
2.5" (DN65): Aluminium, Brass, Stainless Steel
3" (DN80): Aluminium, Brass, Rubber, Stainless Steel
4" (DN100): Aluminium, Brass, Stainless Steel
6" (DN150): Aluminium, Stainless Steel
TODO also supplied parking adaptors - these are the perfect solution to keep Hose Units clear from debris, and stored out of the way until the next fluid/gas transfer is required. Simply uncouple the Hose Unit from the Tank Unit and couple the Hose Unit up to the parking adaptor.
TODO Parking Adaptors are available in the following sizes and materials:
TODO has the ability to provide a number of special options for each size of TODO-MATIC couplings
Selectivity offers customers peace of mind when it comes to potential cross-contamination - it eliminates the risk. The keying system offered on all TODO-MATIC sizes means that only matching selectivity units will couple together.
In the unlikely event of a stiff Hose Unit swivel, the locking mechanism ensures that the Hose Unit stays coupled to the Tank Unit under any hose tension. Easy to operate when coupling and uncoupling.
Our non-powered magnetic switch, installed on the Hose Unit, will give an on/off signal when the hose unit is coupled and uncoupled. This signal can be used by a PLC (not supplied) to generate an indication of open or closed hose unit from afar. ATEX certification not required due to the fact that the switch is not powered.
4WD Unit (Four-wheel drive)
This 2 inch hose unit was designed with aggresive applications in mind. The additional two rollers help operators couple and uncouple the hose unit in applications where higher pressure or aggresive media is present.
Pressure Equalisation Valve (PEV)
The PEV is available on 2" - 3" Tank Units and is designed to release a small amount of pressure from the tank unit body into the piston cavity in order to ease coupling in cases where pressure has built up behind the Tank Unit. The PEV is a small additional valve housed inside the Tank Unit piston
There are a number of handle options available for each size of Hose Unit:
Raised and Lowered Working Temperature Ranges
The TODO-MATIC® design allows for higher and lower working temperatures than the standard -20°C to +80°C, however it is important to recognise that in applications with higher working temperatures, the working pressure must be reduced accordingly to maintain the safety of operators. Contact TODO for the correct working pressure for your higher temperature applications.
The bodies of TODO-MATIC® Hose and Tank Units can be coloured to offer additional visual guidance for operators.
Higher profit margins and safety credentials are assured with the TODO-MATIC® range's minimal residual loss of the product on disconnection. Spillages are reduced to practically zero. Less product leakage means more product delivered to your customers and more money for your organization.
TODO-MATIC® couplers are incredibly reliable and contain very few moving parts. They require little operator intervention, which reduces the risk of human error. Customers report dramatically improved operations and fugitive emission performance. The TODO-MATIC's compliance with European directives 2014/68/EU (PED) and 2014/34/EU (ATEX) provides additional peace of mind.
An innovative solution, supplied by its original creators that provides safety and savings. TODO couplings will quickly return the cost of investment by ensuring your operations with a leakage-free workplace.
