Gladhand swivels to avoid kinking air lines

Phillips Industries introduced a low-profile, compact Swinger Gladhand designed for intermodal fleets and those pulling piggyback trailers. It follows the tractor to prevent accidental disconnects and kinking air lines, which can result in loss of air pressure to the brakes or damage to the air system.

When it is disconnected, it swings closed to a sealed position to prevent contaminants from entering the air system. Costly downtime and repairs, unnecessary hardware expense and excessive installation time can be avoided, the company said.

Its upper portion rotates 180 degrees on a durable nylon glide ring, while the lower portion remains still allowing the airline to remain immobile. This swinging action permits the use of less expensive nylon-type air tubing instead of costly hoses with swinger valves, the company said. Other features include an additional inner seal and non-corrosive stainless steel return spring.
