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. The Stopflex retention system is designed to arrest the trajectory of the flexible hose in case of disconnection of the fitting, avoiding the dangerous “whip effect” caused by the energy released. As
a matter of fact, thanks to the Stopflex system, the hose is secured
to the plant by means of a cable protecting both the operators and
Stopflex 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 Stopflex system, upon correct mounting, was manufactured
and tested to ensure the retention of the hose up to the maximum
pressure indicated in this catalogue in compliance with the following
standards regulating the manufacture of hydraulic flexible hoses:
EN 853 EN 854 EN 855
EN 856 EN 857 SAE J517
Not suitable for high-pressure air and compressed gas hoses.
