Phillips Industries says the company has integrated its swivel S7 socket technology with their anti-corrosive swinging gladhands pre-fastened to a galvanized mounting plate.
The combination of these Phillips products into a single system, dubbed the STA-DRY S7 System, upgrades and improves the connection between the tractor and trailer, the company says.
According to Phillips, when a tractor/trailer combination is required to move in tandem into a tight space creating a severe angle between them, the likelihood of damage to air and electrical cables, the nosebox, connectors and gladhands increases. Phillips says the swivel STA-DRY S7 System allows the cables to follow the movement of the tractor.
Benefits of the new STA-DRY S7 System, according to Phillips, include:
• Swivel technology to move with the vehicle and avoid damage
• Anti-corrosion components throughout
• Long-life and reliability
