Powercoil plug corrosion got you down?

SOLUTION:

Tectran’s WeatherSeal Available on our extensive line of powercoils.

WeatherSeal is a rugged sleeve with an inner sealant layer providing:

  •  A weatherproof barrier, protecting critical wire connections from corrosion
  • Flexible in temperatures to -85°F (-65°C) with excellent bend restriction and protection from cable chaffing
  • Excellent strain relief, minimizing pull stress on connections
  • Protection against unsightly and damaging spring guard rust


PROBLEM:

Are you kinking your aircoils during connections?

SOLUTION:

FLEXGrip-HD™ - thermo-elastomeric gladhand grips flex with air lines during tight turns providing the industries most advance kink protection. (Patent Pending). Records show that coils equipped with the FLEXGrip-HD are more dependable that coils with other grips.  The use of coils with FLEXGrip-HD™ dramatically reduce the number of night and road service calls, saving money and keeping equipment on the road. Upgrade your grips!



PROBLEM:

Tired of tangled airline?  Working in severe weather damaging your equipment?

SOLUTION:

MAGNUMFLEX-HD™ Aircoils – Tectran is the only manufacturer to offer a true Dual-Line solution to the problem of tangled Aircoils.  The MAGNUMFLEX-HD™ Dual-Line Aircoil includes the same protective armor as the ARMORCOIL but the lines are actually bonded together into a compact single unit.  This approach improves the coil memory allowing the coil diameter to be increased to accommodate the coiled electrical cable inside!

MAGNUMFLEX-HD™ coils are the star of our “COLD-Flex” Aircoil series.  Tectran MAGNUM Aircoils are made with armored tubing, comprised of an extra layer of protective polyurethane around standard air brake tubing.  This layer increases the wall thickness of the tubing providing superior kink resistance, advanced coil memory, and ware resistance.  Flexible in temperatures to -85 °F



PROBLEM:

Are your gladhands rusty? When is the last time you replaced the seals? Rusted or loose gladhand clamps will lead to poor clamping force and air leaks.

SOLUTION:

Anodized Gladhands – Tectran’s top-of-the-line gladhands!  Magnesium chloride and calcium chloride used in today’s road salts are extremely corrosive, accelerating corrosion in parts used in traditional gladhands.  We encourage you to try our corrosion resistant Anodized Gladhands and to inspect the components in your air brake and electrical systems regularly for evidence of corrosion-related wear…Stay Safe!
