Improperly Manufactured Strainers Recalled by Hale Products
An emergency response parts manufacturer is issuing a recall for potentially defective equipment.
Hale Products is recalling certain Six Inch Suction Strainers, part number 010-0030-00-0, used in fire engines. The affected strainers may have been improperly soldered leaving the strainer weak, which can cause the strainer to break and allow the strainer and debris to enter and possibly damage the fire pump.
If the strainer or debris enters the pump, and the operator is forced to shut down the pump, there could be an increased risk of injury.
The company is including about 2,400 strainers in its recall.
Hale will replace the defective strainers with new strainers, next day air, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.
