The energy contained within a pressure hose, in case of
disconnection from the fitting, can be very dangerous to anyone or
anything in its vicinity. With the Stop flex retention system, the hose is secured to the plant by means of a cable, protecting both operators and components: Stop Flex arrests the trajectory of a disconnected flexible hose, avoiding 'whip effect'.
Stop flex components can be applied to all kinds of flexible hoses.
A band, equipped with a rubber gasket, remains perfectly secured,
simultaneously allowing the hose to swell according to the working
pressure. The retaining components can be secured to nipples, to
SAE flanges or other system components.
The Stop flex system, when mounted correctly, ensures the retention of the hose up to its maximum pressure in compliance with the following
standards regulating the manufacture of hydraulic flexible hoses:
