Phillips adds dust flaps to gladhand seal
Nov 1, 2006 12:00 PM
Phillips Industries has redesigned its poly seal with integrated dust flaps, making it easier to install with its slightly tapered lip. When not in use, a trailer's air system can be contaminated with dust and debris entering through an unprotected gladhand.
To replace the shutoff, Phillips worked with a major North American fleet to develop a more economical solution. The gray polyurethane dust flap integrated in the gladhand seal is used with a filter screen, creating a barrier that catches dust and debris before it enters the air system.
The new gray dust flap seals (12-0167) and filter screens (12-038 and 12-039) are available from authorized Phillips distributors. Phone 800-423-4512 to locate one.
