Smart Hose Breakaway Hose Safety System
For fluid transfer applications, accidental pull-aways can result in the uncontrolled release of process media and put operations, people, and the environment at risk. Featuring an integrated flapper system that seals off hose ends when stretched or broken, the Smart-Hose Safety System puts a stop to fluid flow, minimizing the impact of catastrophic hose failure.
Advantages Of The Smart-Hose Break-Away Hose Assembly & Safety System
The Smart-Hose family of safety systems works to keep unplanned events from turning into reportable incidents by attaching custom end fittings to fluid transfer hose ends. The fitting contains a high-performance valve and coating cabling that functions as a compression spring.
The compression spring keeps the valve system open during normal operating conditions. Still, the integrated valve instantly discharges and stops process media flow if pressure from the compression spring is cut-off as a result of hose failure.
Smart-Hose Systems offer a variety of benefits:
- Installation Is Easy
- Minimizes Spillage
- Activation Does Not Require Human Intervention
- Underwater Testing With CDA Or Nitrogen Is Performed
- Products Are Serialized
- Orders Are Shipped With The Applicable Test Certificate And operating Booklet
Made from high-strength, corrosion-resistant stainless steel materials, a Smart-Hose Break-Away Hose Assembly is designed to withstand harsh environments, including high-pressure, cryogenic, and industrial applications.

Regardless of which Smart-Hose Technologies product is right for your operation, the principle is the same. All products can be installed on everything from ¼” ID to 8” ID loading and unloading hose assemblies. The only difference relates to the design of the valve located in each end fitting.
The LL1 features a poppet-style valve integrated into the end fitting, whereas the LL3 utilizes a flapper-style valve. The LL3-B, however, includes a flapper-style valve and an engineered break-away system, which can save valuable equipment and personnel during pull forces like unplanned pull-aways.
