Whipchecks are a safety requirement for equipment

If a blast hose, bull hose or any other hose connection points become detached, and you’re in close proximity, sustained injury could result in death.

Whipchecks are a mandatory requirement indicative to a safety standard. Even a 1 inch airline supplying air to your Radex breathing airline filter must have a whipcheck.

By fitting whipchecks to your equipment, especially the stocking variety, the situation becomes much less volatile as the couplings movements are more restricted. This gives much more time for the operator to shut down the air supply when the connection fails.
