HOSE GUARD

Hose Guard is a high-quality plastic specifically designed for hose protection in almost every environment. Flexible, elastic, smooth and with a wide temperature range, it ensures an optimal solution against abrasion and shocks. It is made of high-density polyethylene employing an extrusion process. Hose Guard has got rounded edges to avoid any damage to the hose cover. It is easy to install on hydraulic and industrial hoses to be or already assembled.

The use of hose guard is an economical and convenient method of protecting and extending the life of hydraulic and pneumatic hoses, cables, wires and rope from premature wear. Hose guard can withstand the extremes of climate and operating conditions. It protects against abrasion, cuts, crushing, UV and various hazards. It allows for simple installation in the field, without the need to disconnect lines.

This protection unit is a cost-effective way to ensure compliance with several guidelines for the effects of a broken hose. The Hose Guard will instantly reduce the flow of the supply line when hose burst occurs. The unit is triggered through the increased difference in flow caused by a broken hose.

FEATURES OF HOSE GUARD

● Excellent for use in temperature range from -50°C up to +80°C (continuous) / 100°C (short time)

● Protect hose, increases usable life of hose

The fact that you are looking to install hose protection suggests that you are thinking long-term about prolonging the life of your hoses by preventing damage from impact and wear from abrasion whilst protecting both personnel and the environment. So, to help ensure you achieve your objective, make sure you fit a good product which is made the right way from the right material.

There are several hose protection products in the market today. Many of these products have made it to market with little thought given to how they will perform out in the field. Some are produced for applications much less demanding than the typical hydraulic application. Some are produced by extruding as a strip and formed in to a spiral; some are produced by cutting from an extruded tube. From a commercial manufacturing point of view, extruding and forming is probably the most efficient way to produce. However, it does not result in the highest level of performance in the field because it has a lack of material memory. Our experience tells us that materials made by cutting from tube when produced are the most suitable material that offers the best level of protection because it tends to retain the material memory of the tube.

There are a host of different materials out there. A few are used in specialist applications perhaps where a high temperature resistance is required or maybe to achieve a certain characteristic. Some of these materials are quite heavy. Some offer low resistance to UV which leads to a shorter life cycle.
