G8K Spiral Wire Hose


Recommended For: Ultra high-pressure, high-impulse applications such as hydrostatic transmissions, for use on applications where extremely high pressure capability is required. G8K hose and couplings offer industry-leading bend radius capability, which leads to ease of routing and installation, longer hose life in flexing applications, and fewer bent tube fittings.

Meets Flame Resistance Acceptance Designation “MSHA 2G”

Tube: Black, oil-resistant Neoprene Type A tube material allows for the high pressure, high temperature performance required in these demanding applications. See Hose Stock Characteristics.

Reinforcement: Six alternating layers of high tensile steel wire spiral construction.

Cover: Black, oil resistant, synthetic rubber (Neoprene - Type A), with color coded layline.

Temperature Range: -40°F to +250°F (-40°C to +121°C). For water emulsions see Temperature Limits Table.

Coupling Recommendation (See Crimp Data Manual 35019 or E-crimp): G8K Couplings
