High pressure hose and fittings from Eaton

3rd Quarter 2018 Hydraulic systems & components

BMG has extended its range of Eaton Winner hose and fittings to include Eaton’s latest generation of 4S/6S spiral hose and hose fittings, designed for use in high pressure hydraulic systems used in mobile machinery and equipment. Three outstanding features of this range are the elimination of cool-down leakage, advanced metal fitting corrosion protection and a simple, user-friendly hose fitting assembly process. These new Eaton 4S/6S hose assemblies – which refer to the 4-spiral and 6-spiral wire reinforcement of the hose, approved with respective 4S and 6S series fittings – exceeds stringent industry specifications.

Eaton’s DURA-SEAL technology eliminates hose assembly cool-down leakage, thus reducing equipment downtime and extending life of the hose assembly. DURA-KOTE plating technology offers over 1000 hours of corrosion protection on carbon steel fittings, which is three times the corrosion protection of competitive hose fittings. The MatchMate hose/fitting identification system helps the assembler of spiral hose and hose fittings to quickly and easily identify the correct hose and hose fitting to be crimped together. This system not only enhances reliability and safety of the product, but also reduces wastage from assembling the wrong hose and fitting.

Eaton 4S/6S hose is designed for applications that include high pressure hydraulic systems, petroleum and water-based fluids, as well as construction and agriculture equipment. This range consists of a synthetic rubber tube and cover with 4 and 6-spiral wire reinforcement. An ink transfer layline in this series is standard. Matching hose and hose ends reduce the chance of assembly error.
