100% instant shut-off
Intelligent design and precision engineering provide a reliable 100% instant double valve shut-off.
Compact and lightweight Breakaway Coupling unit[Back to top]
A key operational advantage when considering balanced loading arm systems and the handling of hoses.
Minimum pressure drop
This KLAW Flip-Flap valve provides minimum headloss; allowing for fast and efficient product transfer.
Risk of Partial Break eliminated
This KLAW design eliminates the potentially hazardous scenario called ‘Partial Break’, which can be experienced with low technology poppet valve designed products.
Partial Break is when the coupling has partially parted but not fully separated. This is due to the applied force being prematurely removed (e.g. an operator beginning to move a vehicle and then realising they have not disconnected, therefore stopping).
The KLAW unit ensures that under no circumstances can the seal between the two coupling body halves open to the atmosphere before the internal flap valves have been released. 100% shut off is always instantly achieved.
The Flip-Flap valve design was awarded Lloyds Type Approval, specifically highlighting this important and unique design feature.
The KLAW Breakaway Coupling minimises the risk of spill for a wide variety of applications.
