The technology company Continental has introduced a new heavy-duty air hose for the construction and mining markets.
Named Super Rock Drill 600 HT, the air hose is specifically designed for applications that require a high working pressure hose in a high temperature environment. “This is a hand-built hose that is exceptionally applicable to customers and markets that operate in hazardous environs,” said Laszlo Dobo, product manager for Continental’s industry hoses. “The material in the heavy-duty air hose provides an ideal solution on construction sites, mines and quarries.”
The hose offers a 600-psi working pressure and complies to ARPM (Association for Rubber Products Manufacturers) guidelines on a 4:1 safety factory. The EPDM rubber provides good ozone resistance in outside applications.
The Super Rock Drill 600 HT is characterized as a heat-resistant CPE tube, ARPM class B which is medium oil resistance and withstands an operating temperature of 275F (135C). The black industry hose has spiral plied wires for high working pressure at high temps and will be supplied with industry standard yellow EPDM cover to resist ozone.
All Continental hoses are available for customers and dealers through a variety of North American distribution channels.
