Work protection for man and machine with hose rupture protection

Work protection for man and machine with the HoseGuard® hose rupture safeguard

The HoseGuard® hose rupture protection protects man and machine from the dangerous whipping of a damaged or burst compressed air hose. The increased flow differential triggers the hose rupture protection, and the flow of the supply line is immediately reduced if a hose rupture occurs. The HoseGuard® is equipped with a reset function that allows a minimum flow once the HoseGuard® has been activated.

If the air consumption exceeds the set value because the air line has been cut, the internal piston immediately shuts off the main flow. An integrated vent hole allows some air to flow through. This allows the line pressure to automatically reset the HoseGuard once the main break has been repaired.

The HoseGuard® hose rupture protection complies with the high demands of various standards such as

  • EN ISO 4414/ISO 4414 § 5.4.5.11.1 Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC,
  • OSHA USA: 1926 Occupational Safety & Health Regulations Administration Power Operated Hand Tools - 1926.302/b.7 OSHA Regulations (Standards - 29 CFR)
  • OHSAS 18001 (to be replaced by ISO 45001) Occupational Health and Safety Standard

Cost-effectively and easily ensure compliance with international guidelines for effects of hose rupture. Use this easy-to-maintain safety component in your application, which is compatible with all pneumatic systems.

FAQs

What is the benefit of a hose rupture protection?

The HoseGuard® hose rupture protection protects man and machine from the dangerous whipping of a damaged or burst compressed air hose. Due to the flow difference in the event of a hose rupture, a closing cone shuts off the gas supply and the flow of the supply line is immediately reduced. The HoseGuard® hose rupture protection is equipped with a reset function which allows a minimum flow after activation.

Where is a hose rupture protection fitted?

The HoseGuard® hose rupture protection complies with the high demands of various standards and is fitted between the pressure regulator and the hose line.
