KLAW has issued a white paper providing clear guidance on best practice for the transfer of hazardous and non-hazardous products from ships, loading arms and bulk storage facilities. The white paper is specifically created to help operators limit their exposure to risk and effectively manage the situation in the event of something going wrong.

The White Paper will be available from the KLAW Stand at StocExpo, which takes place in Rotterdam from 26-28 March 2019. It is a comprehensive guide that utilises the vast accumulated knowledge and experience of KLAW, the global leader in the design and manufacture of Breakaway Couplings, Emergency Release Systems, Dry Disconnect Couplers and Camlocks.

Covered in the White Paper are such specifically vital elements as Identifying risk at Terminals during product transfer, Movement definitions of transfer elements, dual risk reduction policy, Mitigating the consequences of an incident and Management of a safety-critical system within a transfer operation.

“The transfer of hazardous materials is obviously something which carries a very high level of innate risk, which can lead to spill, injury and damage to assets. This varies greatly according to the product that is being transferred, whether elements of the transfer are potentially mobile or static and where it is taking place. This paper hopefully clarifies risks and how to protect operations against these risks,” says Mr Dominic Hinchey, the Sales Director at KLAW.

“With such an elevated level of risk it is vital that transfers are undertaken with the highest quality products, that operating staff are highly trained, that the products are properly maintained and that best practice procedures are applied consistently throughout,” he adds.

“KLAW has unique experience in this field and we lead the market globally in the design and manufacture of flow-efficient critical safety systems. We felt it vital to present a concise and definitive White Paper providing key guidance as to best practice, to specifically limit exposure to risk and to ensure that operators understand how to respond most effectively in the event of something going wrong.”
