Hydraulic Hose Burst Protection Sleeve Various sizes & Lengths

In stock
Product Details

Burst Sleeve is required on most Mining and Construction sites in Australia and with good reason.
Pin-prick bursts in hydraulic lines result in fine, high-velocity streams of oil which can easily puncture the skin
causing an oil injection injury

Oil Injection Injury, Unpleasant but Interesting Facts

In hot engine bays, a spray of oil onto a hot turbo may result in a catastrophic fire.

Burst sleeve does not stop the leak but it prevents high-pressure oil Jets and sprays
and protects people from injury, the sleeve does this by accumulating or collecting the leak within the sleeve
chamber and allows it to slowly ooze out of all the fine woven pores in the sleeve.

The size of the sleeve represents the maximum inside Diameter of the sleeve.
or in other words the maximum outside diameter of the high-pressure hydraulic hose
that will be inserted into the sleeve.

Chart Below Shows the inside diameter of the sleeve, its width when Squashed or Rolled Flat and weigh in grams per meter.

For example PRS-18 has an inside diameter of 18 mm and a hose with
a maximum outside diameter of 18 mm will fit inside with minimal clearance.

(IMPORTANT NOTE ! When choosing your Burst Sleeve, make sure you allow for the extra diameter of
any Hose Fitting, Bodies and Swivel Nuts)

Oil Injection injuries are easily underestimated as it often looks and feels no more serious than a bee sting
or an ant bite but if left untreated it can result in limb loss or even death.

Burst Sleeve creates an effective barrier between operators and workers within the vicinity of a burst/pin-prick hose failure.
The result is oil weeping slowly through the sleeve instead of high-velocity sprays, streams or combustable mists.
This ensures that a hose failure is still visible to the operator and gives them the opportunity shut the machine down safely,
minimizing the risk of injury to workers and damage to the machine.

Burst Sleeve is tightly woven which provides the best strength, impact resistance, and abrasion characteristics
over other standard and textured yarns. The melting point of the nylon utilized is 220°C.

The PROTECTIVE HYDRAULIC BURST SLEEVING has been subjected to pressures of 400 bar (5 800 Psi)
from a 1 mm jet of fluid while safely diffusing the fluid energy.
It is important to note that the use of the correct sleeving size is critical to ensuring the correct fluid dispersal.
The combination of materials utilized, product design, and tight weave provides
Our PROTECTIVE HYDRAULIC BURST SLEEVING is manufactured using twisted continuous
nylon yarn with excellent abrasion resistance which is perfectly suited to protect hosing applications
in harsh environments, while still allowing for ease of use given the flexible nature of the textile.

The protective sleeving exceeds the performance levels required in terms of ISO 6805
when tested to ISO 8030 and self-extinguishes in less than 30 seconds.
It also meets the requirements of MDG41 for use in underground coal mines.
The protective sleeving has received Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) approval for flame resistance.
Approval numbers IC-319/1 and IC-319/2.

Our protective sleeving is designed to disperse high-pressure pinhole bursts or failures experienced by hydraulic hoses
as well as to limit damage from such failures.
The sleeving is designed to allow dispersed fluid to weep through the sleeving and the channel end clamps
to prevent dangerous build-up of pressure and to visibly warn operators of a malfunction.

The protective sleeving provides superior results and is tested to and conforms to the requirements of ISO 6945.
When tested, the sleeving endured in excess of 150,000 cycles without perforation.
The protective sleeving also experienced no loss of material when measured in terms of ISO 6805.
ISO 6805 requires the sleeving to have achieved no loss of material greater than 1 gram
when subjected to an applied load on the blade for 2,000 cycles.

When tested against the seat belt abrasion standard SAE J386, the protective sleeving conformed to the test
requirements after exceeding 75,000 cycles and maintains its excellent flame retardant and anti-static properties.

When tested in accordance with ISO 8031, the protective sleeving achieves excellent results,
well below one mega ohm per meter, and as such provides an outstanding rationale for use within
many applications, specifically, within the underground coal mining industry.

The protective sleeving easily complies with both the requirements of ISO 6805 and MDG41,
being less than two mega ohms and one mega ohm per meter respectively.
