Emergency Release Coupling (ERC)
KLAW Emergency Release Couplings utilize a collar release mechanism.
Available in Cable, Hydraulic and Dual Release Systems.
The ERC is an alternative to Breakstud Release Couplings.
KLAW Emergency Release Collar systems are available from 1″ to 12″.
The KLAW ERC is suited to both Cryogenic (-196°C -320°F)
and Elevated product temperatures (+275°C 527°F).
Collar release systems[Back to top]
A controlled activation of the coupling is provided by using one of the three collar release systems: Cable Release ERC, Hydraulic Release ERC and Dual Release ERC.

Non-cryogenic and elevated ERC[Back to top]
Our non-cryogenic and elevated couplings are often installed into LPG, Fuel and Chemical transfer systems.
Flow rates[Back to top]
This range has been designed to offer the best flow rate solution whilst maintaining 100% closure solution.
If the application requires that little more capacity we are pleased to develop higher pressure and higher flow Emergency Release Coupling to suit these needs.
Loading arm and hose application[Back to top]
Although often installed within loading arm solutions, integration into hose assembly scenarios that require more of a controlled activation has become increasingly popular.
