Hose Cable Choker Restraints
Significantly reduce the hazards of an unchecked pressurized hose during a connection failure with one easy-to-install device
Hose Cable chokers are designed for hose applications where a pressure rating beyond the hose whip checks is required. These safety restraints can withstand several thousand pounds of pressure (dependent on cable and hose diameter). The unique design includes a nylon spool at each loop-end that allows the cable choker to cinch tighter around an unchecked hose. This not only holds the hose in place, but can also significantly decrease or stop flow completely until the pressure can be relieved at its source. Each cable choker comes tagged from the factory with their fluid and gas (air) ratings. Due to the hazards and force of air and gas applications, the pressure rating for these applications is cut to half of the fluid rating.
Hose cable chokers range from 3/32 cable up to 1/2 inch cable, for a hose inside diameter range from 1/4 up to 8 inch (see static load vs size chart below). Custom cables can be fabricated to your specific application for increased pressure rating, abrasion resistance, or the connection of varying sizes of hose. Models are available for frac hose and other high pressure lay-flat discharge hose.
Due to the high pressure ratings and the customized length and end loop options, this product is sold by quote only.
We will need the following information: Hose diameter, working pressure, media (fluid, gas, air) end coupling type, quantity, and any other application details that should be taken into consideration. Do not consider hose working pressure as static load. The chart shown only depicts the load capabilities of each choker cable diameter. Please allow us to determine the appropriate cable based on your hose working pressure and specific application details.
Please contact us by email or phone with your application details and we will gladly offer quotation.
