Replacing a dry-break coupling on site

Replacing a quick-action coupling on site

When the dry-break coupling on the side valve of a wagon on a chemical plant or refinery leaks, RSN goes to site to replace it.

Refineries and chemical plants are also our customers. Tank wagons arrive and leave their sites to load and unload products. When the dry-break coupling on the side valve of the wagon leaks, RSN goes to site to replace it.

Before our people can go to site, we need to have the required information to ensure we can perform the work correctly, safely and quickly. We must, for example, know whether the wagon is empty or not and whether it has been cleaned. If the wagon has not been cleaned or is loaded, additional safety measures must be taken depending on the product such as installing sprinklers. Next, our people go to site. They will be equipped with the required protective workwear, respiratory protection and measuring equipment. We also have in our warehouse various dry-break couplings for both liquids and gases so that they can be changed quickly. After changing the dry-break coupling, our people will inspect the wagon for any possible other defects and the screw coupling and buffers will be lubricated. 

The faulty dry-break coupling can be overhauled at our site for possible reuse during the next intervention. If it cannot be repaired, we will ask for a new one.
