Description

We all remember seeing a movie in which a broken air or watering hose becomes out of control and acts like a whip hitting and damaging everything around. The Boss also remembers having witnessed a similar event while having a tire changed at a garage. A faulty fitting had caused an accidental disconnection of the air hose which had resulted in a crazy scene that took everyone by surprise and some time before the situation got resolved.

When a fitting comes out from a pressurised hose or when a pressurised hose breaks, the hose blows compressed air in an uncontrolled way, lifting dust and scattering particles which can be harmful in certain types of industry. But more often than not, this can cause damages and even serious injuries.

In order to prevent these dangerous whiplashes, Topring offers this Hoseguard® safety valve.

  • Safe, it offers a simple and effective protection in the event of an airline breakage
  • Made of aluminium for ¼NPT connection, it is compact, light and easy to install
  • Reliable and tamperproof, it is maintenance free
  • Factory pre-set, it is configured to allow a normal air consumption which does not affect the airline performance
  • Should the air consumption exceed the set value, the air supply is immediately shut off by the internal piston
  • Once the breakage is repaired, a built-in bleed hole leaks a certain amount of airflow which automatically resets the valve

No need to feel the whip!

A word from the boss 

WMS-2019: Mission accomplished! (19-11-07)

Once again this year, Normand participated in the WMS-2019 National Fair, the most important industrial fair intended exclusively for the Canadian secondary wood processing industry.

Normand was again one of the major exhibitors of this major biannual exhibition, which was held from October 2 to November 1 at the International Center in Toronto.

Our participation was summed up as follows: 750 000 dollars of equipment carried in four 53ft trailers and demonstrated on 3100 ft² of floor space thanks to the support of a team of 25 people.

In addition to some of the state-of-the-art equipment showed, we took the opportunity to spread the full range of Steel City™ machines (more than 50 models) thus confirming the important place acquired by this brand in recent years.

In short, this major investment and the results that should result from it allow us to say: Mission accomplished!
