The proven technology of Gall Thomson

Gall Thomson technology has been protecting assets, personnel and the environment for over 34 years.

Successful field experience in the harshest of marine environments and a track record of having more than 1,500 MBCs in service, means Gall Thomson possesses an unprecedented record of delivering units that perform precisely as expected: saving the hose system and associated structures from damage and preventing potentially severe environmental pollution and costly clean-up and vessel downtime.

Minimum product outflow following activation has been confirmed by all 240 successful parting incidents to date.*

Testing

All Gall Thomson units undergo rigorous testing before being certified.

Unrivalled quality control procedures are integrated throughout the manufacturing process; including material management within components. For example, breakstud ratings are tested from the same titanium material as used in the final product.

Gall Thomson can also perform additional tests according to customer requirements.
