Phillips adds dust flaps to gladhand seal

Phillips Industries has redesigned its poly seal with integrated dust flaps, making it easier to install with its slightly tapered lip. When not in use, a trailer's air system can be contaminated with dust and debris entering through an unprotected gladhand.

To replace the shutoff, Phillips worked with a major North American fleet to develop a more economical solution. The gray polyurethane dust flap integrated in the gladhand seal is used with a filter screen, creating a barrier that catches dust and debris before it enters the air system.

The new gray dust flap seals (12-0167) and filter screens (12-038 and 12-039) are available from authorized Phillips distributors. Phone 800-423-4512 to locate one.
