MANUFACTURER: Smartflow Couplings
1inch Dry Break Coupling Hose and Tank Unit
Smartflow’s 1″ (56mm) couplings are the smallest in the range and used on smaller chemical hose lines between ¾” and 1 ¼”.
This size comes without handles due to the small size and are easy to operate with the slim grip design. They can be well suited to IBC applications where zero spillage is required.

Smartflow Dry Break Couplings
Smartflow’s range of dry break couplings are aimed to aid safe, efficient and environmentally friendly transfer of fluids in safety critical, aggressive environments. Making completely Spill-Free connections and disconnections with minimal parts and no additional valves required mean the Smartflow systems can save the customer time and money.
How do they work?
The couplings use a simple integrated poppet system, that activates as the female (Hose) unit is connected to the male (Tank) unit.
As the female coupling easily fits over the male adaptor, it is then twisted clockwise a 1/3 of a turn and locks in place – opening the integrated poppets in both halves and releasing the flow. The reverse anti-clockwise turn will unlock the couplings and instantly shut off flow with zero (well very, very close to) spillage.
