A fully-valved, pressure-balanced emergency breakaway connector, the Hot Make Hot Break is designed to enable efficient pumping/transfer of fluids while providing a reliable safety system in the event of a vessel losing DP (dynamic positioning).
The connector can be positioned subsea or topside and will break away mechanically if the vessel it is connected to loses DP, even under full working pressure and with virtually no fluid loss or line contamination, therefore delivering a high level of protection for crew, equipment and the environment.
The connector is easily operated by ROV, diver, actuator or winch, allowing operators to dispense with guillotines and other uncontrolled subsea and topside emergency disconnection systems.
The ease with which the HMHB can be connected and disconnected also significantly reduces operational downtime and deferred oil revenues.
