This KLAW design eliminates the potentially hazardous scenario called ‘Partial Break’, which can be experienced with low technology poppet valve designed products.
Partial Break is when the coupling has been partially parted but not fully separated. This is due to the applied force being prematurely removed (e.g. due to an operator beginning to move the vehicle and then realising they have not disconnected, thus stopping).
The KLAW unit ensures that under no circumstances can the seal between the two coupling body halves open to the atmosphere, before the internal flap valves have been released and provide a 100% shut off.
The Flip-Flap valve design was awarded Lloyds Type Approval, specifically highlighting this important and unique design feature.
With our comprehensive range of options we can offer a Breakaway Coupling to satisfy a wide variety of applications.
