New “Ice Champion” Hose
Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation today announced a new line of Aeroquip® spiral wire hose specially engineered for low-temperature, high-pressure hydraulic applications. Aeroquip GH810 “Ice Champion” hose is suitable for customer use in temperatures as low as -67∞ F. (-55∞ C.) at operating pressures up to 6,090 psi (420 bar), meeting the needs of customers operating in Alaska, Canada, and other Arctic and Sub-Arctic climates around the world.
Ice Champion hose is available in -12 through -24 sizes and uses Aeroquip Global Spiral TTC crimp fittings that require no skiving.
“We developed Ice Champion hose to meet the tough application requirements of construction equipment, oil and gas rigs, forestry and agricultural equipment, and other machinery operating in brutal Arctic conditions,” explained Todd Pinkelman, Eaton senior product manager. “In addition to its low temperature capabilities, GH810 hose is also very rugged and abrasion resistant.”
Aeroquip GH810 Ice Champion hose meets DIN EN specifications, has a 4:1 safety ratio, and has been qualified to withstand 400,000 impulse cycles. It has a higher pressure rating than competitive SAE 100R12 hose products, and is fully qualified with existing Aeroquip crimp machines.
