A new range of TODO safety break away couplings was unveiled in the US at this ILTA.

They are announced to “totally eliminate human error at the point of transfer.” Models are engineered to eliminate spillage and damage associated with drive and pull away incidents at point of delivery.

The new couplings are engineered to increase flow capacity levels. They come in 2 to 4-in. sizes, stainless steel or aluminum. They are also available with a range of elastomers. They use an advanced double valve design. This enables them to immediately react if a hose or loading arm is subject to an excessive load — closing both valves automatically — then permitting disconnection in complete safety, without spillage of potentially hazardous liquids.

TODO safety break away couplings offer ultra-compact design. They are designed to operate independently of other safety systems with an external power source. And they are easily reset by one worker.

The new couplings are announced for a wide range of tank truck and rail tanker applications. There they are “expected to make a major contribution to safety levels in every situation that requires the transfer of hazardous, flammable liquids,” notes the manufacturer.
