Kurt Hydraulics now provides a “total hydraulic solution” that can help hydraulic system designers handle the most common pressure ranges for their applications, selecting from just two different hose styles and a single coupling style.
For pressure ranges of 3,000 to 6,500 PSI, Kurt Tuff™ and E-Z Bend™ hydraulic hose along with W-Style couplings provide a “Total Hydraulic Solution,” according to Scott Czupryna, sales manager for Kurt Hydraulics.
Answering the needs for today’s lean manufacturers, these two hose styles and one coupling style handle more applications and require less inventory when compared to other industry offerings.
Reinforced internally with four spiral layers of high tensile steel wire braid, Kurt Tuff Spiral Flex hose has a very durable oil, ozone and abrasion resistant synthetic outer cover. It has ten times the abrasion resistance compared to standard hose cover, reports Kurt Hydraulics. Impulse tested for up to 1,000,000 cycles, Kurt Tuff Spiral Flex hose withstands temperatures from -40°F up to 250°F and meets flame resistant MSHA designation. It meets or exceeds requirements of SAE DIN 20023.
