To protect the hose from excessive external abrasion and mechanical damage in rough applications.
A lightweight black HDPE (High Density Poly Ethylene) ‘Safegard’ strip is spirally wound along the hose and secured by crimping at each end.
Temperature Range -40˚C (-40˚F) up to 110˚C (230˚F).
Internal fluid temperatures up to +140˚C (284˚F) are acceptable, when external temperatures are ambient.
The minimum hose assembly length must be doubled if Safegard is being used, and the maximum assembly lengths for all sizes are capped at 20 metres (65 feet).
Safegard is available with anti-static properties and complies with the requirements of a static-dissipative cover within EN 16643. Request details upon enquiry.
To protect the hose from excessive external abrasion and mechanical damage in rough applications without the temperature limitations which apply to the Safegard sleeve.
A large diameter stainless steel wire is spirally wrapped on to the rubber cover, and welded to the ferrule at each end.
Maximum assembly lengths for all sizes are capped at 20 metres (65 feet)
In applications where the hose assembly may be mechanically abused by pulling the hose with excessive force at an angle to a connected end fitting. Also to render a hose assembly ‘Fireproof’ by protecting the end fitting area against the effects of fire.
A second layer of rubber is applied and vulcanised directly on to the hose and the end fitting ferrule, 12” (300mm) along the hose from the fitting.
