KLAW LNG Transfer Systems
A crucial part of any LNG Transfer system is the Emergency Release System (ERS). This reacts to events and manages the system to minimize spill and close down the transfer system.
The KLAW LNG Emergency Release System consists of numerous components including the Emergency Release Coupling (ERC). There are usually more than one ERC and transfer line within the Emergency Release System. When required, the ERS will allow the Emergency Release Coupling to activate.
The only proven Emergency Release System for LNG hose transfer systems
The KLAW LNG Emergency Release System design has been in service since 2006 and is the only proven Emergency Release System for LNG hose transfer systems.
The purpose of KLAW LNG Emergency Release Systems
KLAW LNG Emergency Release Systems help provide an efficient and safe method of LNG transfer during normal LNG transfer operations. When an event occurs then the system instigates and manages a safe and effective closedown of the system.
KLAW LNG Emergency Release Coupling
The ERC is integrated within the line and is the safety link between the transfer hose and the on-ship transfer system. The ERC is designed to close down, separate and make safe the LNG flow when an event occurs.
KLAW LNG HPU Control system
The ERC is controlled a KLAW Hydraulic Power Unit (HPU) which allows the emergency release of all the manifold connections in a matter of seconds. These connections offer double valve closure and safe and identified parting points within the transfer system.
