Phillips Industries has added two gladhand options to its Air-Defense Swinger System, designed to keep trailer air line brake systems free of debris obstruction.
The combined trailer air line filtration system and gladhand is now available with Phillips’ straight service and emergency gladhands. The gladhands feature anodized bodies and stainless-steel connector and detent plates, providing protection against corrosion.
The Air-Defense Swinger System, combining the technology of the original stand-alone system with a 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. A 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, which takes just minutes.
There are six different gladhand options in the Air-Defense lineup for different operation types. In addition to the two new anodized gladhand options, the Air-Defense Swinger System is also available with straight service and emergency gladhands with standard aluminum bodies and powder coated connector plates, the Qwik-E - a quick exhaust valve and anodized gladhand combined into one, and without a gladhand to allow for customization.
