Dry disconnect couplings eliminate spills and releases due to accidental disconnection of a hose or loading arm by "slamming shut" poppets in the male and female pieces of the unit. More advanced technology on the OPW Dry Lok and Mann-Tek dry disconnects DO NOT allow disconnect until a valve handle is closed by an operator. Dry disconnect fittings protect workers, the environment, and cut out accidental spills.
Designed for safe and easy use with minimum operator intervention, the installation of dry disconnect couplers can transform your operation.
Benefits of Dry Break Couplers:
Dry disconnect couplings offer the following benefits:
- Reduces spillages to virtually zero.
- Dramatically improves both operational and fugitive emission performance.
- Reduces the possibility of human error in transfer operations.
- Improves efficiency.
- An unbeatable combination of technical, safety and performance features.
