Danfoss Power Solutions, a global supplier of mobile and industrial hydraulics and electric powertrain systems, recently launched its Aeroquip EC881 Dynamax line of hose.
This two-wire braided hose offers higher reliability and extended service life, reducing maintenance time, costs, and waste.
EC881 hose outperforms standard EN 857 type 2SC hose specifications, with a 35% higher pressure rating, 26% higher operating temperature, eight times more abrasion resistance, 67% greater flexibility (⅓ SAE bend radius), and five times more impulse life (1 million qualified impulse cycles). These benefits are enabled by Danfoss’ patented Dura-Pulse inner tube technology, patented hybrid wire braid reinforcement, and Dura-Tuff cover.
With its higher pressure capabilities, EC881 hose can replace heavy, rigid four-wire spiral hose in certain applications, providing a direct cost savings of up to 30% as well as several design benefits. Braided hose is much more flexible than spiral hose, which may enable OEMs to reroute and reduce hose assembly lengths, contributing to further cost savings. Braided hose is also lighter in weight than spiral hose, which reduces the overall weight of the machine, improving fuel efficiency.
Aeroquip EC881 Dynamax hose is available in sizes -4 through -24
(0.25-inch to 1.5-inch inner diameter). The hose is ideal for a variety of applications, including compact construction equipment, agricultural equipment, forestry equipment, mining, oil and gas, refuse trucks, aerial lifts, and railway.
