WEBBING PRODUCTS QUALITY CHECKS

WEBBING PRODUCTS QUALITY CHECKS

Our Powerite® Protective Sleeving undergoes vigorous testing to ensure it meets the highest exacting specifications for industrial applications.  One of these tests is a high pressure test.

HIGH PRESSURE TESTS


PURPOSE OF THE TEST

To simulate the failure of a hydraulic hose at high pressure and to demonstrate the protection offered by the protective sleeving against damage from a burst or pin hole. The protective sleeving is designed to prevent damage caused by the failure and to safely dissipate the kinetic energy of the hydraulic fluid in a controlled manner.

Webbing Products utilise two high pressure tests, burst and pin hole, to support the quality of their protective sleeving.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

Webbing Products have specifically developed the textile protective sleeving range to be used in industrial hose applications and protection in the mining industry. It is therefore designed to meet stringent international standards. Be sure to view more in-house quality testing videos here.

AAR CERTIFIED WOVEN POLYESTER LASHING AND COMPOSITE STRAPPING

Narrowtex is a quality manufacturer and exporter of strapping and lashing products to the USA and other global markets for over 50 years.

Container Lashing from Narrowtex is manufactured to ensure a safe and secure cargo lashing system. The Narrowtex range of cargo lashing is marketed under the brand NARROLASH™ and the comprehensive range of products can accommodate various cargo securing systems.

The Narrowtex range of lashing systems ensure that cargo transported by either road, rail or sea freight will arrive at its destination without damage.

Narrowtex Composite/Cord Strapping is manufactured from high tenacity polyester yarns and encased in a high-quality polymer coating. Composite Strapping, also referred to as cord strap or synthetic steel, is an effective alternative to steel strapping, metal banding and plastic strapping. Composite Strapping does not rust and therefore will not damage precious cargo during transit and storage.

Composite strapping is designed to absorb impacts and load shifting during transit and unlike steel strapping will not snap or break.
