Greater flexibility for high pressure applications

Greater flexibility for high pressure applications

Eaton’s EC600 X-Flex hose provides 24% more flexibility for applications needing very high pressure performance in small areas. At up to 50% of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) 100R15 bend radius, the EC600 X-Flex hose’s flexibility makes installation in tight spaces much easier while reducing the total amount of hose needed on each machine.

Designed to perform in very demanding, high impulse applications, including construction, mining and industrial equipment, the EC600 X-Flex features a highly abrasion-resistant DURA-TUFF cover material, supporting a longer hose assembly life while helping increase uptime and reduce overall operating costs.

 “As hydraulic systems are asked to do more, our customers are increasingly looking for hose products that can withstand very high pressures in a variety of sizes – without sacrificing flexibility,” said Salih Karayagiz, product manager at Eaton. “The EC600 X-Flex spiral hose is designed to be up to 24% more flexible for easier handling during installation, while withstanding over one million impulse cycles with an operating pressure of 420bar.”

 The hose offers both four and six spiral wire construction that is operable at temperatures from -40°C  to +121°C with no fluid leakage between hose and fitting when the machine shuts down and the system cools. The EC600 X-Flex is compatible with Eaton’s 4S fitting series in sizes -12 and -16 and 6S fitting series in size -20 and does not require skiving operations. In addition, Eaton’s 1W type internal skive fitting series is qualified and guarantees an impulse life of one million cycles.
