Definition - What does Whip Check mean?
A whip check is a safety cable used during an abrasive blasting process. Whip checks connects air hoses across the coupling to prevent the hoses from flying around if the connection inadvertently separates.
A whip check's primary purpose is to keep the pressurized hose on one place if any decoupling occurs between the hose mouth and jet nozzle and therefore prevent accidents at the workplace.
Corrosionpedia explains Whip Check
Whip checks are safety cables made of corrosion resistant, high strength steel that when installed diverts strain on the coupling to the whip check.
Whip check installation is easy and requires no tools. The whip check has spring-loaded loops that are opened and slipped over each hose to provide a firm grip on the hose and avoiding it from whipping around during an accident.
