Designed especially to provide pull-away protection for LP-Gas and anhydrous ammonia transfer operations including transport and delivery truck loading and unloading, engine fuel container filling and miscellaneous cylinder filling operations. When properly fastened to the inlet end of the discharge hose, the valve is designed to stop gas escape from both upstream and downstream lines in the event of a pull-away. An excessive tension pull causes the valve to automatically separate, closing two internal back pressure checks. Only a few cubic centimeters of gas escape at the instant of separation.
It is recommended that a convenient means be provided to safely remove the pressure from the line upstream of each coupling half to enable reassembly of the valve. To reassemble, simply push the male half firmly into the female half until the retaining balls slip into the retaining groove. Check for leaks after reassembly.
