Safex Valve

Don't drop your load if your hose bursts! Attach Hyspecs SAFEX(TM) valves to your earthmoving equipment and you wont risk damage or injury in the event of hose failure. Manufactured, assembled and tested by Hyspecs.

Hyspecs SAFEX TM valves (hose burst protection valves)are designed to be mounted directly to cylinders on earthmoving equipment (backhoes, front - end loaders, excavators etc) that are used to lift freely suspended loads. With the correct installation and adjustment these valves protect against hose failure thereby becoming part of the load holding and controlled lowering system designed to comply with AS1418.8 & ISO 8643.
