Protect your most important assets, employees, machinery and equipment, with Protect-Air HoseGuard® from Compressed Air Australia.
These safety fuses offer simple and efficient protection of pneumatic systems in the event of a broken compressed air hose or pipe.
The air supply is immediately shutoff by the HoseGuard® if the volume of air exceeds a set value. This ‘value’ is factory set to allow normal air consumption when using air tools.
Should the air consumption exceed the set value, for example, when a compressed air line is severed, an internal piston instantly shutsoff the main flow.
An integral bleed hole allows some air to flow through, enabling the line pressure to automatically reset the HoseGuard® once the main break is repaired.
Distributed by Compressed Air Australia, HoseGuard® safety fuses are available in aluminium and, on special order, 316L stainless steel, and are suitable for every application where compressed air is used:
- Manufacturing facilities
- Machinery hire
- Fuel station air hoses
- Trade show venues
- Automotive workshops
- Chemical and pharmaceutical industries
- Clean rooms
- Offshore and onshore
HoseGuard safety fuses for Compressed Air Systems meet OSHA and MSHA requirements, and are CE-compliant to help Australian managers adhere to Workplace Health and Safety Act directives.
HoseGuard complies with EN ISO 4414-11.2010-§126.96.36.199.1: Failure of hose assemblies and plastic piping. When failure of a hose assembly or plastic piping constitutes a whiplash hazard, it shall be restrained or shielded by suitable means.
