Our Hose Release System is used for the protection of loading hoses during loading/unloading of barges, providing environmentally safe handling of loading hoses.
If the connected loading hose is stretched over the allowable working envelope, the cable will be activated. The shear pin will break and the clamp collar of the release unit will unlock. The two halves of the coupler will divide preventing damage to the installation or the vehicle. The spring loaded poppets cut the product flow of the hose and the vehicle completely so that leakage is avoided.
