Mid Line Weak Link (MLWL)


The Mid Line Weak Link is a full-bore, pressure-balanced connector, positioned midway along the hose and designed to break away in an emergency, automatically sealing the bore. This system not only prevents fluid loss into the marine environment, but also protects personnel and equipment against an uncontrolled disconnect and the impact of dangerous loads.

Its mid-hose options give operators and service companies complete flexibility to position the disconnect system subsea, marine or topside, making it an ideal solution in a variety of applications and an excellent alternative when a mounted disconnect is not appropriate.
