The Smart-Hose Safety System is a hose assembly designed to shut off flow automatically in both directions the instant a hose failure takes place. The system connects a coated cable within the hose bore to the valve plungers, wedges or flappers at hose end points.
Acting as a compression spring, the cable will hold valves open when conditions are normal. According to the company, the instant that thrust is eliminated because of coupling ejection, hose stretching or hose separation, both valves seat themselves, stopping all flow in either direction.
