Phillips Industries Introduces a New Trailer Air Brake In-Line Filtration System:  The AIR-DEFENSE™ System with Quick-Change Cartridge

Santa Fe Springs, CA (June 23, 2015) Phillips Industries has introduced the AIR-DEFENSE™ System, a trailer brake in-line filtration system with Quick-Change Cartridge that traps debris before it can cause dangerous, expensive and time consuming repairs. 
The AIR-DEFENSE™ System’s Quick-Change Cartridge, featuring a bypass mode to ensure air flow at all times, catches debris before it can enter the trailer air lines and brake valves, causing damage.  When the cartridge is full, a red indicator pops out giving a quick visual notification to a technician or operator that it needs to be replaced.  Replacement of the cartridge is accomplished in minutes without added downtime to the vehicle.
The patent-pending AIR-DEFENSE™ System, designed and assembled in the U.S., can be used on both service and emergency lines.  Both the AIR-DEFENSE™ System (Part No. 12-815) and Quick-Change Cartridges (Part No. 12-035) can be purchased through authorized Phillips’ distributors.
