HoseGuard Safety Fuses offer simple and efficient protection to pneumatic
systems in the event of a broken compressed air hose or pipe.
air supply is immediately shut off by the HoseGuard should the volume of air
exceed a set value. This “value” is factory set to allow normal air
consumption when using air tools. Should the air consumption exceed the set
value (that would happen when a compressed air line is severed), an internal
piston instantly shuts off the main flow.
An integral bleed hole allows some
air to flow through. This enables the line pressure to automatically reset the
HoseGuard once the main break is repaired.
by Compressed Air Australia, HoseGuard Safety Fuses are available in aluminium
and, on special order, 316L stainless steel, and are suitable for every
application where compressed air is used:
Safety Fuses for Compressed Air Systems meet OSHA and MSHA requirements, and
are CE compliant to help Australian managers comply with Workplace Health and
Safety Act directives.
HoseGuard complies with EN ISO 4414-11.2010-§188.8.131.52.1:
Failure of hose assemblies and plastic piping: When failure of a hose assembly
or plastic piping constitutes a whiplash hazard, it shall be restrained or
shielded by suitable means.
