Smart-Hose® assemblies are designed and engineered with a valve integrated in each end fitting. If the hose assembly experiences a catastrophic hose failure, the Smart-Hose® Safety System is designed to instantaneously shut off the flow in both directions. Designed as a passive safety device, the Smart-Hose® Safety System needs no human intervention to activate.
Large bore barge loading and unloading hose assemblies are constantly being exposed to a tremendous amount of stress. The weight of the material being transferred coupled with the high end force associated with large bore hose assemblies can lead to a catastrophic hose failure. If a barge hose experiences a catastrophic hose failure hazardous material can spill into the waterway creating an uncontrolled release of hazardous material. The Smart-Hose® Safety System can protect your facility from the devastating negative consequences associated with a catastrophic barge hose failure.
