LifeGuard™ Line-of-Sight Sleeving System
Beyond peak performance, Gates hydraulic systems offer you safety. The LifeGuard™ Line-of-Sight Sleeving System is the first true protection in line-of-sight hydraulic applications.
Contains bursts up to 10,000 psi and pinhole leaks up to 5,000 psi at 121°C for up to five minutes. After redirecting the explosive force down the length of the hose, the LifeGuard™ sleeve disperses the energy and fluids at the hose ends via carefully designed “channel” clamps. The leaked fluid then allows for fast hose failure detection.
Equipment operators working within a one meter line-of-sight of a hydraulic system know the potential for problems. Personal injury. Fluid burns and injection. Fires and explosions. Electrical shock. Mechanical failure. The double-layer sleeve effectively shields you against these hazards.
No other flexible connection safeguards your operators, equipment and environment like LifeGuard™ sleeving.
