|German term or phrase: Abrißtrockenkupplung|
|In an investment proposal for an operation and supervision concept in gas fields, under the heading: "Aufstellung der Einzelmaßnahmen für den Anteil "Safety" für den Projektbestandteil "One Man On-Site Truck Loading":|
Produkt-, Gaspendel- und Süßgasanschluß werden jeweils mit einer Abrißtrockenkupplung ausgestattet, um das Austreten von H2S-beladenem Medium bei Losfahren des TKW bei angeschlossenen Schläuchen zu verhindern.
I haven't a clue what an Abrißtrockenkupplung is. Any ideas anyone?
|Breakaway Automatic Shutoff Coupling|
This is what FM (Factory Mutual) calls them. Actually, "trocken" means non-leaking here, it's not that important that it's actually dry (as opposed to wet). And FM is a good authority, if comes to safety terms, I suppose.

|This sounds the best of the three, though I'll simply call it "breakaway shutoff coupling". Thanks for the explanation of what's really meant by "trocken", I was a bit confused here.|

"dry clutch" would be "Trockenkupplung", however I have no idea how to translate "Abriß" in this context, since it generally means digest, summary, synopsis, abstract, sketch, draft etc. Good luck!
