Tectran Solutions for Transportation Equipment
Over a period of 40+ years, Tectran has become a manufacturer and marketer of air, hydraulic and electrical components and systems for the transportation equipment industry. Their primary market focus includes the heavy truck, trailer and bus industries though their continuous product line expansion has begun to draw us into other mobile equipment markets.
Best known for our innovative tractor-trailer hook-up lines, Tectran offers a wide range of products enabling “one-stop” purchasing.
All-in-One hookup Solutions! Tectran invented the AirPower Line to solve snagging and damage of straight hookup lines for users who prefer not to use coiled lines. Fully factory assembled, the AirPower Line combines all of the best features of our rubber air hose and ABS cable assemblies into one convenient bundle that installs in minutes.Tectran 13.5 Airlines
Selecting the right Aircoil – TMC RP417 provides guidelines regarding the selection of Aircoils. We have captured some of this information for your reference.
Measure the distance between the tractor and trailer hookup points at the point of greatest extension during a full right turn articulation. Note that in the case of lines that are suspended off the deck by a clamp, the point at which the tubing is clamped (rather than the tractor protection valve), should be considered the tractor connection point for purposes of this measurement.
Measurement between tractor & trailer hookup points:
- Less than 8 ft. – Recommended Working Length: 12 ft.
- Between 8-10 ft. – Recommended Working Length: 15 ft.
- More than 10 ft. – Recommended Working Length: 20 ft.
