Hydraulic tube fittings exceed red rust corrosion standards

Third Quarter 2019 Hydraulic systems & components

Gates, a leading global provider of application-specific fluid power and power transmission solutions, has achieved enhanced levels of protection from red rust through the innovative use of materials science and process engineering. New plating techniques were developed to protect the DIN 2353 hydraulic fittings range from the natural ageing and degenerating processes, which in turn allows end-users to reduce scheduled maintenance costs by extending product life.

Randomly selected components were tested by the highly respected and DAkkS accredited IGOS Institute of Solingen (Germany). After extensive salt spray tests, which simulate the aggressive atmospheric conditions that generate attacks by red rust, the protection delivered by Gates DIN 2353 fittings proved over 500 hours above the recognised industry standard of 720 hours.

“Scheduled maintenance programmes are subsequently reduced,” says Gates business unit director, Ben Rooke. “This represents significant cost savings and these can be shared with our distributors and end-user customers.”

Gates operates within a culture of service that listens to the requirements of its distributor partners and end users, responding with practical market solutions. By incorporating market feedback into their product development cycle Gates can lower the overall cost of ownership of capital equipment for end users, delivered through the following benefits:

• Fewer replacement and maintenance cycles.

• Less downtime as a result of longer life surface coating.

• Savings in the cost of replacement parts.

As a manufacturer of DIN 2353 fittings for original equipment manufacturers in a wide range of industrial sectors, the Gates manufacturing standard is a leading benchmark for quality across its entire DIN parts range.
