Silicon hose

  • 16-Jun-2009 10:29 EDT

Eaton has developed a silicone hose for high-temperature, high-vibration, and chemically challenging truck, bus, and mobile off-highway applications. The hoses are available in sizes and configurations suitable for use on turbo and charge air coolers, heater circuits, and coolant system connections in straights as well as formed and hump hoses. The aramid- and polyester-reinforced silicone hoses resist cracking, peeling, ozone, and aging; operate at temperatures from -65 to +500°F (-54 to +260°C); compensate for misalignment; and offset vibration. The aramid-reinforced configuration resists fatigue in supercharger applications. Hoses are available in straight lengths of 3 ft (0.91 m) in hot and cold hump sections, charge air cooler, cold and hot couplings, and hot and cold 45° and 90° elbows.
