Smartflow Couplings Begins Global Field Testing Project

Mechanical engineering firm, Smartflow Couplings, has launched a program of global field testing ahead of the release of new product developments later this year. The field testing is being carried out across Europe, North and South America, Africa and Australasia during summer and autumn 2020.

The project will run alongside UK testing of the firm’s new dry break couplings in controlled lab conditions, which will use a replica oil platform to measure performance as well as collating data on wear under different conditions.

The company’s latest innovations in dry break couplings tackle sustainability and cost management, chiefly in the oil, gas and chemical industries.

The new range is being developed in different sizes and materials from the largest 4 inch products suitable for use on oil platforms to transfer high volume fluids, to smallest 1 inch couplings. Chemically resistant titanium versions have been developed specifically for the transfer of hazardous liquids.

Smartflow’s dry break couplings are up to 60 times faster than connections using traditional flanges with valves. Speeding up the loading/unloading process on fluid transfer systems. They have been designed to reduce the number of parts and eliminate spills for greater efficiency and safety on site.

Smartflow expects to confirm details of its global distributor network over the coming months and will expand production in the North of England once testing is complete.
