The optional locking function makes accidental disconnection impossible, as the hose unit cannot be separated without positive operator intervention. This prevents interruption of the loading process as well as reducing the risk of an accident caused by a hose unexpectedly. For 4“ couplings there are several variants of the locking device, dependent of the type of handle.
- The design of the locking-lever allows coupling release to be triggered without removing the hands from the hand handle, as the locking device is mounted directly onto the handle and is activated in a way similar to the gear-change paddles on a car steering wheel.
- The user has absolute control over the entire coupling and uncoupling process.
- User feedback on correct locking is provided by tangible click-in-position operation.
- No adjustment of the tank unit required.
