Phillips Industries introduced two new Power Air Kits, expanding its product line to offer three different solutions to replace any level of back-of-cab equipment.
A PAK combines 12- or 15-foot electrical and air assemblies with factory-installed gladhands and cable support in an easy-to-carry box with retail graphics. Phillips PAKs are complete back-of-cab systems sold under one part number.
Sta-Dry and OEM Standard Power Air Kits have joined the Qwik-Change PAK to provide premium, mid-level, and essential options for back-of-cab replacement.
The new Sta-Dry PAK is aimed at those vehicle operators looking for superior performance at an affordable cost. The ABS electrical cable features completely molded Sta-Dry plugs to prevent moisture intrusion and cable guards for strain relief. Heavy-duty black rubber air lines with red and blue grips for easy coupling and uncoupling include factory-installed gladhands for quick and easy set-up. Two 20-inch heavy-duty tracker spring kits with Qwik-Clamp provide quick installation and proper 3-In-1 cable support.
The OEM Standard PAK is a value-priced essential back-of-cab system. The ABS electrical cable comes with Phillips OEM-specified Permaplugs, which are unbreakable, non-corrosive, and weather resistant. Heavy-duty black rubber air lines include factory-installed gladhands for quick and easy set-up. Mini pre-cut spiral wrap curls create organization and bring electrical and air lines together to help avoid tangling and prevent damage from using cable ties. A 20-inch heavy-duty tracker spring kit with Qwik-Snap provides quick installation for 3-hose cable support.
In addition to these two new kits, the existing premium 3-IN-1 Qwik-Change PAK’s performance is now enhanced with upgraded rubber airline grips. The redesigned Power Grip XL handles are wider in diameter and increased in length from 4 to 6 inches. The solid rubber grips are molded to contour the air fittings and hoses to keep the handles in place. In addition to an improved ergonomic feel offering greater leverage for coupling and uncoupling, the new Power Grip XL also enhances kink prevention and hose protection during jackknife turns at the base of the handles.
The Qwik-Change PAK also includes the innovative QCP (Quick-Change Plug), with a plug-in cartridge that is field serviceable in under two minutes. An ABS cable guard and extended lead length on the trailer side provide added cable support and strain relief. Heavy-duty rubber air lines with factory-installed anodized gladhands prevent corrosion. The kit includes two 25-inch Qwik-Change Tracker Spring Kits with Qwik-Clamp for proper 3-In-1 cable support that installs in seconds without using tools.
All PAKs are available from Phillips authorized distributors.
