Whip Stop Hose Safety Restraint Systems
The Whip Stop hose safety restraint system is designed to significantly reduce the risk of injury caused by a high pressure hose failure.
The magnitude of force caused by a high pressure hose failure incident can lead to serious injury and can be difficult and dangerous to quickly restrain. Additionally, spills and equipment damage can cause costly cleanup and downtime. The whip stop hose safety restraint system, also known as a whip sock, will hold the hose in check until the operator can safely eliminate the hose pressure.
Hobble clamps (shown in red) are available for a wide variety of pipe diameters and can be custom made to specifically meet your requirements. Shackles are available with bolt and cotter pin or carabiner option for applications where hoses need to be frequently disconnected.
In order to ensure that the whip stop system is completely secure, make sure that the pipe, frame, or equipment that the hobble clamp is shackled to is also capable of withstanding the maximum force that your hose failure may cause.
The application of self fusing tape where the end of the whip stop meets the hose is recommended when the outside diameter of the hose is within acceptable range but has a looser fit.
