A new generation of Marine Breakaway Coupling has been launched by MIB ITALIANA in response to the industry demands for maximised environmental protection of our oceans.

Key features of the “MIBreak” MBC - Petal Valve Hose Marine Breakaway Coupling include:

-Enhanced reliability and increased break bolt reliability for prolonged service in a seawater or salt laden environment.

-Unique on site reassembling ease and speed of reassembly.

-By rapid closure of the larger segments, a large section of the full bore is shut off first, followed by controlled closure of the smaller segments. This avoids excess surge effects and reduces spillage to a minimum.

-Full Bore, no interruptions in the flow path, with zero pressure loss.

-The “MIBreak” solution includes a revolutionary damping arrangement which not only controls the closure rate but is specifically designed to combat problems of debris/solids ingress that could be experienced within the mechanism.

-Protects hose-strings against excessive axial tension or excessive internal fluid surge pressures.

The capability for On-Site Reassembly by the client’s own personnel was a key consideration in the design phase of the MBC. The solution fully achieves this often crucial objective. The “MIBreak” MBC meets this demand head-on with a precision engineered and patented petal design, a closure mechanism that provides optimum performance, as well as meeting the level of confidence demanded by terminal owners/operators.This programme was concluded with a comprehensive series of proof tests, witnessed by an independent third party authority.

This covers the supply of a 16” diameter standard “MIBreak” Marine Breakaway Coupling for a floating hose installation meanwhile 12'' unit will be avaiable soon.
