Banlaw has used its design expertise to solve the problems and risks associated with refuelling on longer-haul rail journeys.
Pacific National – a large freight loco operator in Australia – had safety concerns regarding their fluid couplings used within In Line Refuelling systems, commonly used on longer haul journeys. Concerns included;
- Spillage of fuel when connecting and disconnecting the couplings.
- Difficulty in connecting the couplings with residual fuel pressure within the hose.
- Unintentional disconnection of the couplings during a journey.
Banlaw designed and engineered Banlaw Bulk Fluid Transfer Couplings as a solution to avoid these issues.
