Clean break with stainless

Guyson has introduced the Kaptech Klaw range of automatic stainless-steel breakaway couplings for use in flexible hose connections to moveable sources such as road tankers. Automatic breakaway couplings for use in flexible hose connections to moveable sources such as road tankers disconnect if an excessive tensile load is applied to the line. By acting as the weakest link in the transfer line, the Kaptech Klaw coupling disconnects if an excessive tensile load is applied to the line (e.g a tanker is driven away whilst the hose is still attached) so that damage to the hose, pipework, pump, vehicle, storage tank, etc is avoided. After a breakaway has occurred the coupling can be easily reset in a few minutes on site by a maintenance engineer. The Kaptech Klaw hygienic breakaway coupling has been specially developed for food industry use; it has a smooth, polished, unrestricted flow-path without potential bug traps. It is manufactured throughout from 316 stainless steel and has an FDA-approved silicone seal.
