Spanish term or phrase: carrete cizallable
This is a fuel intake for ship to ship fuel transfer. The sense I get from this is that it (the reel, spool, ....) can be detached (or cut off) in an emergency, does that sound right?

"La estación dispone de una sóla toma, (por este sistema solo se puede aprovisionar combustible) de DFM de 6” con carrete cizallable "
