How do container ships refuel?

Container ships are pivotal to much of the international trade that occurs across the globe. They typically carry manufactured goods and products from one destination to another on scheduled services. The amount of fuel carried on board will depend on the ship’s engine capacity, size, and travelling speed. A ship that typically holds up to

Gall Thomson Launches Anti-Pollution Safety Marine Breakaway Coupling That Sets New Performance Standards For Fpso Hose Reel Applications

The inventor and market-leader of Marine Breakaway Couplings (MBC), Gall Thomson, has announced the latest evolution, PetalC, which reduces axial loads on the most exposed breakstuds by up to 30 per cent and reduces MBC install length by 60 per cent. Gall Thomson MBCs are fitted to marine hoses used in offshore operations to transfer

Why is the Gall Thomson Marine Breakaway Coupling setting new Industry Standards?

2019 marks the fortieth anniversary of Gall Thomson’s launch of the innovative Flip-Flap Marine Breakaway Coupling (MBC). The device has since been in constant daily use in thousands of locations throughout the world in the toughest of marine conditions. Over a span of four decades, Gall Thomson’s MBC has proven time and again that its

Gall Thomson Launch Most Advanced Marine Breakaway Coupling Yet

Gall Thomson are specialists in Marine Breakaway Coupling technology with over forty years field based operational experience in delivering secure offshore hydrocarbon product transfer. The Marine Breakaway Coupling (MBC) was developed to aid the safe movement of crude oil, heavy fuel oil and similar products. In the event of a vessel breaking its mooring or

What are Cam-lock couplings and when should you use them

Cam-lock couplings Cam-locks are a hose couplings used to connect fittings on piping. They are available in different materials and can be used in various mediums.They replace the traditional, unsafe and time-consuming nut, bolt flange and drift pin methods of pipe connection. A lever or joint on the cam lock coupling connects one hose pipe

The Important Features That Make Marine Breakaway Couplings So Vital

Marine Breakaway Couplings (MBCs) are an essential safety device in many onshore and offshore installations where fluids are transferred from vessel to vessel, usually under a considerable amount of pressure. In these conditions, an uncontrolled failure of the fluid transfer system can have potentially devastating consequences, both in terms of human safety and in damage

Marine Breakaway Couplings

Marine breakaway couplings are a life and asset saving technology used during offshore oil and ship to ship product transfers. Used between two strings of hose, they are designed to break-away only with inline pulling action. It is similar to a standard industrial coupling; however, it’s been designed with extra resistance to torsion and bending,
