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 250°F 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 three-foot 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.
