No matter the industry, Pig’s Tail and Safeplast solutions can help offer protection, increase the longevity and lifespan of hoses, and prevent unwanted failures in a variety of uses and applications. For example, our PTFRAS Series is flame retardant. It also has low electrical resistance, which prevents hydraulic hoses and cable bundles from building up an electrical charge in mining, industrial and aggregates applications.
Another important application is wear indication. Our SPAB Series of Safe-Spiral ABRA spiral wrap is designed to assist the operator with identifying failures before they occur by exposing the yellow interior color when the wrap needs to be replaced. Next, let’s discuss how Pig’s Tail and Safeplast solutions can help with safety and maintenance.
In addition to a variety of applications serving multiple industries, Caplugs’ hose protection has several excellent safety features. For example, our SPSWS Series stops the whiplash effect when a hose becomes detached, keeping anyone working in proximity to the hose safe. Likewise, the PTPS Series is designed for burst and containment protection for hydraulic hoses and machinery, along with protection and bundling of hoses, cables, chains, wires and more.
Additionally, to make maintenance easy, we offer pre-cut boxes of Safe-Spiral or ABRA in our SPPC Series. These pre-cuts pair with other products like our service plugs, the PTSP Series, to develop a quick and convenient in-house maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) kit. Caplugs has prioritized safety features and maintenance convenience when designing our hose guard protective products.
Need custom hose protection with a particular color or specialized markings? We’re here to help. Our SPDU Series Safety-Spiral Duo is not only designed to protect your hose, but also has an additional safety feature – a caution stripe down the middle of the spiral for increased visibility. We are able to change the color stripe to meet your specific requirements or branding preferences, and we can even add pad- printed logos. We can also add markings or instructions to your product. For example, we can design your hose protection with an arrow indicating flow direction or to label the wrapped line. Lastly, we also manufacture cut-to-length runs of spiral wrap from existing sizes or our engineers can work with you to develop a custom size or length to meet your exact need.
Both Pig’s Tail and Safeplast spiral wrap lines offer excellent wear and damage protection for your pneumatic and hydraulic hoses, helping prevent downtime and save time and money on repairs. Investing in hose guard products can help extend the useful life of your hoses and help you protect your investment, and help keep everyone on the job safe and make maintenance faster and easier.
