Gladhand seal makes shutoff obsolete
May 1, 2005 12:00 PM
For use with its gladhands, Phillips Industries has designed a new seal with an integrated dust flap, which eliminates the need for a shutoff when trailers are stored. When not in use, a trailer's air system can be contaminated with dust and debris entering through an unprotected gladhand. To address the need for a shutoff, Phillips Industries worked with a major North American fleet to develop a more economical system. The black polyurethane dust flap integrated in the gladhand seal is used with a filter screen, creating a barrier that catches the debris before it enters the system.
