Smart-Hose Technologies has earned a certificate of compliance from CSA International for their Smart-Hose Break-Away LPG hose assembly. The CSA Certificate will allow Smart-Hose Technologies the ability to market their Smart-Hose Break-Away LPG hose assemblies directly through distribution located throughout Canada.
“The hose assembly represents the weak link in any LPG transfer operation except when a pull-away incident occurs” said Tim Raftery, Smart-Hose Technology’s VP of Marketing. “During a pull-away incident a 2″ textile braided LPG transfer hose assembly can experience 12,000 lbs. of pull force before it fails. Under those circumstances the hose assembly may not be the weak-link and therefore, damage to the LPG facility piping can occur which could lead to an uncontrolled release of LPG.”
The Smart-Hose Break-Away hose assembly is currently offered for 1 ¼”, 2″ and 3″ LPG transfer applications. Smart-Hose assemblies meet the Canada B620 regulation for a passive emergency discharge control system for the loading / off-loading of LPG highway tanks or portable tanks.
