Phillips Industries has added two new gladhand options to its Air-Defense Swinger System. The trailer air line filtration system and gladhand combined into one, is now available with Phillips’ straight service and emergency gladhands with anodized bodies and stainless-steel connector and detent plates, providing the ultimate protection against corrosion, the company says.
The original stand-alone Air-Defense System with replaceable Quick-Change Cartridge was created to keep the trailer air line brake system free of debris obstruction, Phillips Industries says. It is comprised of two components, the anodized housing and one-piece screw-in filter with an easy to see service indicator. The Quick-Change Cartridge features a bypass mode which ensures complete airflow, even when the filter is full. Phillips says a non-resettable red indicator on the bottom of the cartridge pops out as notification for replacement, which takes just minutes.
The Air-Defense Swinger System, combining the technology of the original stand-alone system with a swinger gladhand, swivels 180° side-to-side, keeping air lines kink-free during use, and when not in use automatically returns to the seal to protect the air lines the company says. The Air-Defense Swinger System, now with six different gladhand options, gives commercial vehicle operators the choice that best suits their operation. In addition to the two new anodized gladhand options, Phillips adds the Air-Defense Swinger System also is available with straight service and emergency gladhands with standard aluminum bodies and powder coated connector plates, the QWIK-E, a quick exhaust valve and anodized gladhand combined into one, and without a gladhand to allow for customization.
Phillips adds the Air-Defense Swinger System with anodized gladhands will be an option for customers to spec under the Phillips Uptime program.
