In this example, the resetting took less than two minutes
The KLAW range Easy Reset is designed to allow resetting of Flip-Flap Valves without the need for chocks or removal of the Breakaway Coupling from the line.
This feature is provided as standard on all new Marine Breakaway Couplings, Flowbreak Industrial Couplings, Cryobreak Breakaway Couplings for cryogenic media transfers and Emergency Release Couplings. Any competent technician can use the pre-fitted service plug to enable reset screws to be connected.
Each valve is then held in the open position while work is carried out. This is valuable for small couplings where space is premium and also large units where the reset screws substantially reduce risk during maintenance. Reset Screws allow the coupling to be serviced while remaining within the transfer line assembly. This considerably reduces maintenance time in certain applications.
KLAW recommends Breakaway Couplings are serviced as part of the annual maintenance program for other equipment in the loading bay and transfer system.
