The latest addition to the Selecta range of diesel accessories from Silvan Australia are 25cm (or one inch) Diesel Dry Break Connectors. The quality machined brass dry break connectors come in two parts and simply snap tightly together. Immediately that the link is broken or disconnected internal valves immediately shut off ceasing the diesel flow.  This means that the flow from the storage or delivery source will end and there will be no back flow or drainage from the delivery end of the hose or gun, hence all supplies are conserved and no spill results.

Silvan’s business development manager Michael Frost says that some people are using the Dry Break Connector as a security aid as a section of the hose with  the delivery gun can be removed overnight or whenever there is a threat of illegal access being gained to the diesel storage. “Standard conditions in many local government, public works, mining or civil construction contracts are now requiring that a Dry Break Connector must be  installed into any diesel fuel delivery line to protect against the risk of fuel spills and the costs and time which is typically taken to clean-up and  remedy spills. The dry break connectors are also ideal to extend a delivery hose, inter change with different delivery nozzles or create diesel refill or transfer connections”  Michael says.

The complete dry break connectors are 113 mm in length and both hose ends on the connectors have a one inch BSP threaded hose fitting. The dry break connectora also come with a twelve month warranty.
