Parker Hose Sleeve Protects Workers, Equipment from Burst Energy

Parker Hannifin's Hose Products Division has introduced a new hose protection sleeve designed to prevent worker injuries and equipment damage from high-pressure hose bursts. The sleeve is part of the Partek line of hydraulic hose sleeving products.

Partek Defense features high-performance materials and a proprietary endurance-boosting weave pattern to contain pressurized hose bursts and dissipate media within hose assemblies. It can be an integral element of worker safety programs in industries where operators work in close proximity to high-pressure hoses, including mining, construction, and agriculture.

The MSHA-rated protective sleeving contains host bursts at up to 12,000 psi. It is flexible and does not restrict hose routings. For installation, users cut the sleeve to hose length and secure it over the hose assembly with metal band clamps. An added benefit is that the fibers used to make the sleeve are specially coated to protect hoses against sunlight, ozone, and other environmental conditions that cause deterioration.
