FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Phillips Gladhand Seal with Integrated Dust Flap Protects Against Contaminants In Air System
Santa Fe Springs, CA (April 11, 2005) Phillips Industries has designed a new seal with an integrated dust flap for use with their gladhands, which eliminates the need for a shutoff when trailers are stored. When not in use, a trailer’s air system can be contaminated with dust and debris entering through an unprotected gladhand. To replace the need for a shutoff, Phillips Industries worked with a major North American fleet to develop a more economical solution. The black polyurethane dust flap integrated in the gladhand seal is used with a filter screen creating a barrier which catches the debris before it enters the system. The dust flaps and filter screens are available from an authorized Phillips distributor. Please call 1-800-423-4512 to locate an authorized distributor.
