Trinity Sling created the Whip-Lash for use in restraining a pipe connection on the oilfield or hydraulic fracturing pad. The Whip-Lash was designed for tough, high-stakes situations when restraints must hold and function repeatedly in difficult conditions.
Trinity’s Whip-Lash is fast and easy to assemble.
Whip-Lash rigs up and rigs down on the pipe connection quickly and easily for busy equipment operators, making last-minute changes no problem to handle. It is composed of a synthetic material that won’t rust, and because it is lightweight and non-metallic it will not damage the flow line. It adjusts easily to changing conditions, so it may be removed and re-installed at a moment’s notice.
The Whip-Lash uses a half-hitch adjustable installation to contain pressurized pipe, hose, or components in the event of a catastrophic failure of the flow iron connection. It is designed to mitigate damage from “whipping” of pressurized flow lines and components due to connection failure. Trinity Sling constructed the restraint out of proprietary fibers to use in pressurized flow-line operations for a hose-to-hose or hose-to-iron wing-style application. Whip-Lash™ is manufactured for hose or iron with inside diameters from 1” to 6” based on operating pressures stated on its tag, which accompanies each restraint.
