Bloodhound SSC uses CleanBreak for Refuelling | Action Sealtite

CleanBREAK Best Choice for Refuelling BLOODHOUND Super Sonic Car


Seeing Richard Nobel take on his biggest challenge yet, the BLOODHOUND SSC is an engineering adventure with the development of a jet and rocket powered car designed to go 1000mph – the fastest car to date.

Action-Sealtite Ltd is working in partnership with the BLOODHOUND team to come up with the perfect solution for refueling the supersonic vehicle. With over 30 years of experience and knowledge to boast of, their offering of the simple and effective dry disconnect couplings allows quick and easy refueling between runs.

The CleanBREAK coupling was the best choice to use with the car’s fuel, High-Test Peroxide (HTP). As a volatile liquid that can decompose into a high temperature mixture of steam and oxygen when it comes into contact with a catalyst, the CleanBREAK coupling ensures the prevention of this, along with no spillages or air and dirt inclusion.

BLOODHOUND SSC’s slender body meant space limitations and product compatibility were a challenge but Action-Sealtite’s ability to select the best coupling suitable overcame this. A 2” (70mm) stainless steel Hose and Tank unit fits in a specially designed inlet behind the seat with direct access to the HTP tank, with the CleanBREAK coupling delivering safe and easy use with minimal operator intervention.

An ergonomic design with smooth external profile with no badging or rivets prevents injury while eliminating bacteria traps, the ability to withstand pressure up to 25 bar, and allowing high flow rates and lower pressure drops between the couplings are all benefits behind the BLOODHOUND SSC choice.

Action-Sealtite’s spill prevention range is available in sizes from 1”(56mm) to 4”(164mm) and is obtainable in a choice of materials, seals and threads. All CleanBREAK couplings are flexible enough to suit all applications including bulk fluid transfer, flammables, corrosives, toxic and aggressive or hazardous liquids.
