Pirtek Service & Supply Centers, specialists in hydraulic and industrial hose replacement sales and services throughout the United States, have recently expanding their product line to include their new safety product, the 9030P Pirtek Fluid Power Glove. With application in many industries, including manufacturing, mining, agriculture, waste collection, pressure washing and many others, this safety glove protects the wearer’s hand against the hazards of fluid injection from high-pressure systems.
Independent laboratory testing confirms the new glove resists skin penetration by standard hydraulic mineral oil against intense pressures. In addition, the Fluid Power Glove safeguards against needle sticks, blade cuts, tears and abrasions. Made by HexArmor, the Pirtek Fluid Power Glove’s resistance to cutting is the result of a threefold layering of high-tech protective fabric. The palms are also treated with an antimicrobial coating.
