Offspring adds Flip Flap to Marine Breakaway Coupling range
Offspring International (OIL) has added MIB Italiana’s Flip Flap to its range of marine breakaway couplings. The Flip Flap breakaway coupling provides passive hose string protection against excessive axial tension and internal surge pressures during hose transfer operations.
In the event of transfer hose failure there is a risk of oil spills and damage to hoses and fittings. The Flip Flap’s disc valves ensure 100% leak-free shut-off. The two halves of the Flip Flap separate once either a pre-set load, internal pressure or combination of both activates the weak-bolts. As the valves close liquid transfer is prevented, containing liquid within each section of the separated hose.
Commenting on the Flip Flap breakaway coupling Mark Brooks, Sales & Marketing Director, Offspring International said, “The Flip Flap offers protection to hose transfer operations in harsh offshore environments that are at risk of tanker breakaway and internal surge pressures, causing oil spills and damage to hoses and fittings.”
MIBreak – Reset on site
In addition to the Flip Flap, OIL offers the MIBreak, also manufactured by MIB Italiana. The MIBreak’s rapid response, petal valve design is easy to reset on-site after activation, allowing terminal operations to quickly resume. Seamlessly integrated within the flexible hose string, a full-bore design ensures uninterrupted flow and zero pressure loss.
