Chafe-Pro® Hydraulic-Hose Covers are designed to protect hydraulic hoses from destruction caused by long exposure to UV radiation, the elements, from cutting, and chafe abrasion. Chafe-Pro is constructed of a layer of tough non-porous ballistic nylon that is used in our commercial-grade marine chafing gear. FJORD’s Hydraulic-Hose Covers provide additional protection from leaks as they will act as a barrier against a leak from spraying (i.e. forming a mist) which could result in a fire if such a mist was to come in contact with an ignitable source. Chafe-Pro® Hydraulic-Hose Covers will minimize the potential of leaked high-pressure hydraulic fluids from coming in contact with heated surfaces or nearby personnel.
FJORD’s unique patented system permits the installation of our covers on hose lines without having to remove a hose from its system. Chafe-Pro® Hydraulic-Hose Covers are attached to the hose with a “hook and loop” closure. The ends of the cover are secured to the hose fittings with two nylon tie-wraps. The inspection or servicing of a hose line is easy, as all that is required is to cut the nylon tie-wraps and undo the closure.
Both the installation and removal of a Chafe-Pro® cover is easily accomplished by an individual within a matter of minutes.
