Mann Tek Dry Disconnect
MannTek dry disconnect couplings are also known as a dry break coupling or a dry break coupler. Designed to prevent accidental spillage during connection and disconnection of the hose unit and pipelines. The main benefit of dry disconnect is the protection they provide to operators and the environment when working with hazardous substances.
These easy to connect dry break couplings are used for many different applications. These include chemicals, petroleum fuels, aviation and anywhere that dangerous fluids, such as acids, are being used.
Along with operator safety, our dry disconnect couplings substantially reduce the risk of environmental spillage. Therefore helping to provide environmentally safe liquid transfer.
Mann Tek Safety Break
Safety break couplings, also known as breakaway couplings are designed to prevent pull away accidents. This is where vehicles pull away from loading points with the loading equipment still connected causing an accidental disconnection. The safety breaks prevent the resulting release of often hazardous substances. They also prevent damage to the loading and metering equipment, the vehicle and surrounding environment making these environmentally friendly.
They work by breaking at a pre-determined break load. 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 and are easy to reset and service on site.
MannTek’s dry disconnect and safety break couplings are suitable for a wide range of substances. These include liquefied gases, chemicals and hydrocarbons, oil, petrochemicals, paints, and solvents. Many industry sectors such as marine, food processing, bulk fuel storage and loading use these couplings.
