Whipsock Safety Sleeve-- The harder you pull, the safer you get
Date:2020-10-27   Click:468

Introduction:

Hose breakage or coupling broken occursometimes, standard whip check safety cable is effective for low-pressurehoses. But for heavy duty high-pressure hoses, a good hose restrain device isthe mean of life and death.

 

Facing this situation, we should find the bestway to make high-pressure hose safety under control. To be a lucky dog, wefound the best device—whipsocks safety sleeves. Whip socks, sometimes calledcable socks, are a new effective way to restrain high-pressure hoses. In theevent of a high-pressure hose assembly failure, ICM Industries Safety Whipsocksprovide stand-by safety and minimize uncontrolled whipping

 

Whip socks are the best high-pressure hoserestraints because of the stocking style woven steel grips the hose moresecurely over a larger area. As we know, abrasion and wear and tear usuallytake place near fittings, which may result in a rupture.  If this happens within the covered area,additional safety occurs that would never occur with a standard whipcheck.  The woven steel can also helpprevent abrasion to the hose underneath.

 

THE HARDER YOU PULL, THE SAFER YOU GET--Thisresults in a safe and effective way to restrain hoses. ICM Industries whipsocks are made of the highest quality wires and are also available in customlengths to fit longer hoses or to run the entire length of a hose. We alsooffer stainless steel options.

 

Whip socks are not restricted to just airhoses, but can be used on any application where high-pressure hoses are used,air, water, hydraulic, slurry, etc.

 

Twin EyeWhipsock

Thesingle ended Hose Restraint prevents personal injury in the case of a failedhose or broken coupling This type of Whipsock will secure a single end of ahigh pressure hose to an anchored point to prevent uncontrolled movement in theevent of hose connection failure or breakage

 

4 EyeWhipsocks

4 EyeWhipsocks are designed to protect against hose splitting along the entirelength of the hose. As these Whipsocks are custom made, so please remember tospecify the exact distance between the shackle points and the hose diameter(external)

 

Application:

1)     In the event of a high-pressurehose assembly failure, whipsock safety cable produce standard-by safety and minimizeuncontrolled whipping

2)     Used in heavy duty, highpressure air, water, hydraulic and slurry applications

3)     NOT designed for lifting ortowing, the two anchoring points and shackles must be rated for the application

 Features:

1)     Dual anchor points secure hose-to-hose and hose to rigid anchor points

2)     Woven cable grips the hosesecurely over a large area while protecting it from everyday abrasion and wear

3)     Can be customed for the twoeyes or four eyes and can be customed for length

4)     Be sure the anchoring pointsare rated for application

5)     Twin Eye Whipsock and Four-eyewhipsocks are available

Material:

1)     Galvanized steel wire

2)     Stainless steel is availableupon request

3)     Spiral guard to prevent cablewear caused coupling vibrations

Installation Notice:

High pressure hose restraint designed tosecure hose-to-hose and hose-to-rigid anchor points to minimize uncontrolledmovement in the event of hose connection failure or separation. Note: For easeof installation it’s recommended to attach prior to installing couplingassembly.

 

Step 1: Select the appropriate Whipsocksafety sleeve based on the hose O.D. and working pressure of the hose. For shorterassemblies a custom double ended, 4-eye Whipsock, must be used. Note: Only usecustom Whipsocks on the specific length and diameter it is labelled for.

 

Step 2: Always ensure to inspect entireWhipsock safety sleeve for frayed wire and corrosion before each use andinstallation. Replace immediately if damaged or worn.

 

Step 3: It is necessary that the hose isclean and free form oil and dirt before use.

 

Step 4: Compress the tail end of theWhipsock safety sleeve to open the ID, work the stocking to slide the grip downthe length of the hose. Run your hands down the grip from the coupling end tothe tail to smooth out any gaps or loose wires in the grip to ensure contactwith the hose.

 

Step 5: After coupling, slide the Whipsocksafety sleeve up the hose into secured position just behind the fitting,ensuring the eyes have enough length to reach the anchoring points. Avoidoverlapping the stockings if Whipsock safety sleeves are on each end of thehose.

 

Step 6: Using a King Safety Shackle orbolt, nut & pin style clasp, rated above the breaking strength of the hose,secure the hose restraint at two horizontally opposed, rigid anchor pointsrated for the application.

 

Step 7: Slight slack in the legs ispreferred. This will allow a travel distance for coupling in disconnection andgreatly reduce the load applied to the hose restraint. A travel distance of upto 1" - 2" (40-50mm) is recommended.
