Trinity Sling Hose Hobble Strap
On the pad, hose-to-hose connections need secure restraints, and that’s where Trinity Sling’s Hose Hobble comes in. Trinity’s Hose Hobble is designed specifically to restrain hose to hose connections in oilfield and fracking applications. Like Trinity’s Gangline™, the Hose Hobble is made of strong, durable polyester webbing that has been proven repeatedly in high-pressure and merciless conditions, from the heat of the West Texas summer to harsh British Columbia, Canada winters.
Trinity’s Hose Hobble is as flexible to use as the hoses it was created to restrain. It is designed for easy use on water, hydraulic, and pneumatic hoses. It is available in various standard lengths tailored to the needs of oilfield and hydraulic fracturing. It fits hoses with inside diameters from ¼” to 6” to enable it to handle the needs of many different types of jobs, and the Hose Hobble adjusts easily after application, allowing operators to make quick changes in the field on the pad, saving time and money.
Fulfills Restraining Hose Connections Guidelines
Security of workers on the pad is paramount in the oilfield and in fracking. Trinity Sling’s Hose Hobble satisfies the following requirements for restraining hose connections (click for specifics):
Trinity Sling created the Whip-Lash™ for use in restraining a pipe connection on the oilfield or hydraulic fracturing pad. The Whip-Lash™ was designed for tough, high-stakes situations when restraints must hold and function repeatedly in difficult conditions.
Trinity’s Whip-Lash™ is fast and easy to assemble. It rigs up and rigs down on the pipe connection quickly and easily for busy equipment operators, making last-minute changes no problem to handle. It is composed of a synthetic material that won’t rust, and because it is lightweight and non-metallic it will not damage the flow line. It adjusts easily to changing conditions, so it may be removed and re-installed at a moment’s notice.
The Whip-Lash™ uses a half-hitch adjustable installation to contain pressurized pipe, hose, or components in the event of a catastrophic failure of the flow iron connection. It is designed to mitigate damage from “whipping” of pressurized flow lines and components due to connection failure. Trinity Sling constructed the restraint out of proprietary fibers to use in pressurized flow-line operations for a hose-to-hose or hose-to-iron wing-style application. Whip-Lash™ is manufactured for hose or iron with inside diameters from 1” to 6” based on operating pressures stated on its tag, which accompanies each restraint.
The Trinity Whip-Lash™ is attractive to many operators because it satisfies the requirements for restraining hose connections established by both OSHA and WorkSafe BC, workplace safety organizations that protect employees across the United States and British Columbia, Canada from unnecessary hazards they might encounter during the workday.
