Reinforced with two steel wire braids, these are often called “two-wire” braid hoses. You’ll find them in high-pressure applications, such as on construction equipment. They range in operating pressures from 6000 psi (3/16” ID) to 1825 psi (2” ID).
Operating at pressures from 3000 psi to 300 psi, these hoses can have one-wire, multiple-wire and/or textile-braid construction.
You’ll find these hoses in applications with operating pressures under 300 psi. Typically they’re used to transmit petroleum-based fluids, lubricating oil, air, glycol anti-freeze and water. Gates GMV hose is also rated for suction applications.
If there is any doubt about the reinforcement on a particular assembly, use a knife to cut/scrape away some of the hose cover and identify the type of reinforcement.
