Mann Tek Safety Break Couplings
Mann Tek Safety Break Couplings, also known as breakaway couplings, are designed to prevent pull away accidents where vehicles pull away from loading points with the loading equipment still connected, thus eliminating the release of often hazardous substances & preventing damage to the loading equipment, vehicle, & surrounding environment to comply with Health & Safety regulations and standards.
They work by breaking at a determined break-load where valves on both sides of the coupling will automatically close, preventing fluids escaping. Using a simple spring-loaded design, they provide a fast shut-off & are easy to reset & service on site. Mann Tek safety break couplings are made by Swedish specialists Mann Tek, who have over 35 years’ experience in providing safety coupling equipment.
These safety break couplings are suitable for a wide range of substances including liquefied gases, chemicals & hydrocarbons, oil, petrochemical, paints, & solvents. Safety break couplers can be fitted to loading skids and are designed to be installed between a fixed point such as a pipe, pump, manifold and a hose. Various industry types such as marine, food processing, bulk fuel storage & loading use these breakaway couplings as part of their safety regime.
