Body and trailer component round-up04 January 2019

Several body and trailer components for bodybuilders are highlighted.

First, SecureSeal, a reusable trailer seal system (pictured), has pointed out its green credentials, compared to single-use plastic seals. The product consists of a permanently mounted lock for two cables that thread around the trailer closures, whether roller shutter, barn door or curtainsider (although the latter requires extra cable). Unlike single-use products, a single unit, which does not require batteries, is said to be guaranteed for 50,000 actuations. Every closure generates a random five-digit security code that is re-set on opening. Other versions of the product include a key or datalogger.

Second, a new mudflap design claims to improve aerodynamic efficiency by allowing air to pass through, while still directing water spray back to the road. Testing at Lancaster University in 2015 found it created a third less drag than standard mudflaps. Manufacturer Boydell & Jacks states that the Spraybreaker mudflap, which is VCA approved, offers 86% spray collection.

Third, Eaton has launched tubes for truck airbrake and fuel applications. As the Synflex two- and three-layer tubes are made of the company’s proprietary thermoplastics, they avoiddelivery delays caused by shortages of polyamide raw materials. They are said to have been found compliant with standards DIN74324-1 and ISO 7628 for air braking systems and DIN 73378 for use with motor vehicles.
