Recommended For: Ultra high-pressure, high-impulse applications such as hydrostatic transmissions, for use in the construction, agriculture, forestry, underground or open pit mining, or other industries 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 fitting requirements.
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.
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).
