US company Phillips Industries has introduced a new trailer brake in-line filtration system that is able to trap debris before it can cause time consuming repairs.
According to Phillips, the new ‘Air Defense System’ is fitted with a Quick-Change Cartridge that will catch any debris before it can enter the trailer air lines and brake valves, causing damage. It also has a bypass mode to ensure air flow at all times.
When the cartridge is full, a red indicator pops out giving a quick visual notification to a technician or operator that it needs to be replaced.
The patent-pending system can reportedly be used on both service and emergency lines.
