Cryogenic Industrial Breakaway Coupling

Breakaway Couplers
Breakaway Couplers

KLAW Industrial Couplings are specifically designed to activate under a bending moment. The activation force can be applied at an angle of between zero and 90 degrees to the plane of the coupling.

KLAW Cryogenic Couplings have long been proven to deliver reliability and we have developed close relationships with cryogenic transfer companies throughout the world.

Suitable for operating temperatures to -196°C (-320°F).

Applications include multiple LNG transfer solutions, Liquid Oxygen, Ethylene, Ethane and many more.


Typically, a KLAW BAC is installed into loading assemblies, where at least one side of the coupling is attached to a rigid and fixed point.
