Phillips adds swinger gladhand option for AIR-DEFENSE system

Phillips Industries recently combined the AIR-DEFENSE System with a swinger gladhand in its newly developed AIR-DEFENSE Swinger System. 

The company says the new system is the “next generation” of in-line air brake system filtration products, offering increased protection for commercial vehicles.

Obstructed air lines have the potential to cause dangerous safety hazards and expensive, time-consuming repairs. The original AIR-DEFENSE System with replaceable Quick-Change Cartridge was created to keep the trailer air line brake system free of debris obstruction. It is comprised of two components, the anodized housing and one-piece screw-in filter with an easy to see service indicator.

The Quick-Change Cartridge features a bypass mode which ensures complete airflow, even when the filter is full. A non-resettable red indicator on the bottom of the cartridge pops out as notification for replacement. 

The new AIR-DEFENSE Swinger System combines this same technology with that of a swinger gladhand. The swinger gladhand swivels 180 degrees side-to-side, keeping air lines kink-free during use, and when not in use automatically returns to the seal to protect the air lines.

The AIR-DEFENSE Swinger System, which is designed to reduce downtime and maintenance costs, is available with one of the following gladhand options: straight service, straight emergency, QWIK-E or the swinger arm without a gladhand for customization. Installation of the entire swinger system is as simple as installing a standard swinger gladhand.
