Product Details

Burst Sleeve is required on most mining sites in Australia and with good reason. Pin-prick bursts in hydraulic lines result in fine, high-velocity streams of oil which can easily puncture the skin causing an oil injection injury (Google at your own peril).

This kind of injury is easily underestimated as it often looks and feels no more serious than a bee sting or an ant bite but if left untreated it can result in limb loss or even death.

Burst Sleeve creates an effective barrier between operators/workers within the vicinity of a burst/pin-prick hose failure scenario which results in oil weeping slowly through the sleeve instead of high-velocity sprays/streams.

This ensures that a hose failure is still visible to the operator and gives them the opportunity shut the machine down safely, minimising the risk of injury to workers and damage to the machine.

Our PROTECTIVE HYDRAULIC BURST SLEEVING is manufactured using twisted continuous nylon yarn tightly woven which provides best strength, impact resistance and abrasion characteristics over other standard and textured yarns. The melting point of the nylon utilised is 220°C.

The PROTECTIVE HYDRAULIC BURST SLEEVING has been subjected to pressures of 400 bar (5 800 Psi) from a 1mm jet of fluid while safely diffusing the fluid energy.

It is important to note that the use of the correct sleeving size is critical to ensuring the correct fluid dispersal.

The combination of materials utilised, product design and tight weave provide the PROTECTIVE HYDRAULIC BURST SLEEVING excellent abrasion resistance perfectly suited to protect hosing applications in harsh environments, while still allowing for ease of use given the flexible nature of the textile.


FLAME RETARDANCY

The protective sleeving exceeds the performance levels required in terms of ISO 6805 when tested to ISO 8030 and self-extinguishes in less than 30 seconds.

It also meets the requirements of MDG41 for use in underground coal mines.

The protective sleeving has received Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) approval for flame resistance. Approval numbers IC-319/1 and IC-319/2.


PIN HOLE AND BURST RESISTANCE

Our protective sleeving is designed to disperse high pressure pin hole bursts or failure experienced by hydraulic hoses as well as to limit damage from such failures.

The sleeving is designed to allow dispersed fluid to weep through the sleeving and the channel end clamps to prevent dangerous build-up of pressure and to visibly warn operators of a malfunction.

The protective sleeving has been subjected to pressures of 400 bar (5,800 Psi) from a 1mm jet of fluid while safely diffusing the fluid energy.

It is important to note that the use of the correct sleeving size is critical to ensuring the correct fluid dispersal.


ABRASION RESISTANCE

The combination of materials utilised, product design and tight weave provide the protective sleeving with excellent abrasion resistance perfectly suited to protect hosing applications in harsh environments, while still allowing for ease of use given the flexible nature of the textile.

The protective sleeving provides superior results and is tested to and conforms to the requirements of ISO 6945. When tested, the sleeving endured in excess of 150,000 cycles without perforation.

The protective sleeving also experienced no loss of material when measured in terms of ISO 6805. ISO 6805 requires the sleeving to have achieved no loss of material greater than 1 gram when subjected to an applied load on the blade for 2,000 cycles.

When tested against the seat belt abrasion standard SAE J386, the protective sleeving conformed to the test requirements after exceeding 75,000 cycles and maintains its excellent flame retardant and anti-static properties.


ELECTRICAL CONDUCTIVITY

When tested in accordance with ISO 8031, the protective sleeving achieves excellent results, well below one mega ohm per meter and as such provides an outstanding rationale for use within many applications, and specifically, within the underground coal mining industry.

The protective sleeving easily complies with both the requirements of ISO 6805 and MDG41, being less than two mega ohm and one mega ohm per meter respectively.
