Gates Launches an Industry-First Multi Purpose Hose


Sep 26, 2017

DENVER, Colo., September 26, 2017 – Gates Corporation, a global, diversified industrial manufacturer of power transmission and fluid power solutions today announced the introduction of a new multi-purpose hose line that serves the needs of three distinct markets:  fuel transfer, hydraulic return and suction lines, and 20R5 coolant applications.  The Multi Master™ SD MegaFlex® line is the first-of-its-kind to simultaneously meet SAE 100R4, SAE J30R5, and SAE J20R5 requirements.  It has a 1:1 bend radius, an ARPM Class A tube and is also MSHA compliant. 

The Multi Master™ SD MegaFlex® hose provides customers with a solution to a broad range of demanding applications.  The nitrile tube has excellent oil and fuel resistance, and is compatible with air, water, and coolant.  Its corrugated chloroprene cover and steel helix reinforcement give it superior 1:1 flexibility and make it effectively kink free.  The hose can be used from -40°F to +250°F (- 40°C to +121°C) in both suction and discharge applications.

Tom Pitstick, SVP and Chief Marketing Officer, explains, “Several customers challenged us with applications that had extremely tight routings and kink-free requirements.  Our solution, Multi Master™ SD MegaFlex®, exceeded their expectations.  Not only does the Multi Master perform well without kinking, it also solves ergonomic issues during installation with its superior flexibility.”

The Multi Master™ SD MegaTuff® hose is offered in ¾” – 6” sizes with a corrugated black cover and has been validated with both crimp and clamp couplings options.   Crimp specs are available in eCrimp.
