Pull-Away Incident

Hose assemblies represent the weak-link in any transfer operation except when a pull-away accident occurs. During a pull-away incident a 2” textile braided hose assembly can be exposed to 12,000 to 15,000 lbs. of pull force before it fails. Under these circumstances, the hose assembly may not be the weak-link during a pull-away incident and therefore, can result in additional damage to plant piping, bulk-heads, tank truck piping and loading arms which can result in an uncontrolled release of a hazardous material.

Couple Ejection

Any hose assembly can experience a coupling ejection where the fitting separates from the hose. The Smart-Hose Safety System is designed with a valve integrated in each end fitting. If the hose assembly experiences a coupling ejection, the Smart-Hose Safety System is designed to instantaneously shut off the flow in both directions.

Hose Separation

If a hose assembly experiences a complete hose separation during a hazardous chemical transfer operation an uncontrolled release of the hazardous chemical can occur. The Smart-Hose Safety System is designed with a valve integrated in each end fitting. If the hose assembly experiences a complete hose separation, the Smart-Hose Safety System is designed to instantaneously shut off the flow in both directions.

Hose Rupture

If the hose assembly experiences a rupture during a transfer operation an uncontrolled release of the hazardous chemical can occur. The Smart-Hose Safety System is designed with a valve integrated in each end fitting. If the hose assembly experiences a hose rupture during the transfer operation, the Smart-Hose Safety System is designed to instantaneously shut off the flow in both directions. Please note that it in order for the Smart-Hose Safety System to engage the cable inside the hose assembly must extrude out of the rupture.
