A whip check is designed to reduce, dissipate and in some cases stop the energy that is produced when to hoses come apart under pressure should the coupling fail. NLB’s whip checks can be used at hose-to-equipment or hose-to-attachment points. Their use is recommended as a safety measure throughout the water jetting industry. NLB whip checks are manufactured from amazingly strong nylon webbing with tensioned loop ends which go over each end of two hoses that are connected with a coupling
NLB whip check model PM15924 is rated for a tensile strength of 6,000 pounds.
