Hose combines high pressure with long cycle life
Eaton has expanded its range of hydraulic hoses with the launch of the Dynamax EC881 hose series. Qualified to one million impulse cycles, this new two wire-braided hose has been designed to last and withstand tough applications. Intended for deployment in mobile applications such as compact construction equipment, agricultural vehicles, aerial lift platforms and forestry machines, this hose is also suitable for industrial applications such as hydraulic presses.
In today’s productivity driven environment, owners and operators simply cannot afford machinery downtime. It is therefore imperative that OEM designers and engineers design for reliability. Impulse cycle capabilities are a key measurement in terms of life expectancy. Standard EN857 Type 2SC hoses are qualified up to 200,000 impulse cycles. The new EC881 series from Eaton exceeds this standard by five times. This durability helps decrease maintenance costs, improves safety and minimises downtime.
Thanks to a new generation of inner tube and hybrid plies, EC881 delivers a 35 percent higher pressure capability when compared to standard hoses of standard EN857 2SC. Where expensive four spiral hoses have had been used to cope with system pressures, the new EC881 two wire braided hose can be an alternative hose which helps deliver a direct cost saving for OEMs.
