Phillips Industries Swinger Gladhands Improved to Protect Against Corrosion
Santa Fe Springs, CA (October 14, 2010) Phillips Industries' Swinger Gladhands are now fully anodized to protect against magnesium chloride, road salt and chemicals which cause corrosion. Swinger gladhands with live swivel were developed by Phillips for intermodal and piggy back trailers where straight or angled gladhands are exposed to damage. The Swinger allows the gladhand to swivel 180° without kinking the air line; and when not in use, the gladhand is automatically returned to seal, protecting the air lines.
The Swinger swivel design is available with service or emergency gladhands and with Phillips QWIK-E® gladhand, with quick release valve that releases trailer brakes 50% faster than conventional gladhands. All Phillips gladhands can be added to original equipment or purchased through Phillips authorized dealers for replacement needs or retrofitting.
