Smart-Hose Technologies

This company’s Break-Away adapter (photo) is a break-away coupler designed with an engineered break-point to protect plants, tanks, trucks, rail-cars and loading arms from the hazardous consequences of pull-away incidents. The patented design does not restrict flow of product and requires no annual maintenance. The company has also released 2- and 3-in. cryogenic Break-Away hose assemblies. This assembly is designed to protect cryogenic facilities from catastrophic hose failures and pull-away incidents. The Smart-Hose cryogenic hose assembly, a passive safety device, requires no human intervention to activate. — Smart-Hose Technologies, Folcroft, Pa.
