Phillips Industries has introduced the Air-Defense System trailer brake in-line filtration system designed to trap debris before entering air lines or brake components.

The Air-Defense System features the Quick-Change Cartridge which has a bypass mode to ensure air flow at all times. The Cartridge catches debris before it can enter the trailer air lines and brake valves to cause damage.

When the cartridge is full, a red indicator pops out giving a visual notification to a technician or operator that it needs to be replaced. Replacement of the cartridge can be accomplished in minutes, says Phillips, to reduce needed downtime.

The Air-Defense System can be used on both service and emergency lines.
