Eaton’s New EC600 X-FLEX Hose Provides 24 Percent More Flexibility for High Pressure Applications

13 February 2019

Power management company Eaton will be displaying the EC600 X-FLEX high-pressure spiral hose, designed for demanding applications requiring very high pressure performance in small areas at BAUMA 2019. At up to 50 percent of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) 100R15 bend radius, the hose’s flexibility makes installation in tight spaces much easier while reducing the total amount of hose needed on each machine.

The EC600 X-FLEX has been designed to perform in very demanding, high impulse applications, including construction, mining and industrial equipment, and features a highly abrasion-resistant DURA-TUFF cover material, supporting a longer hose assembly life while helping increase uptime and reduce overall operating costs. A limited number of free sample kits are available upon request to demonstrate the improved flexibility first-hand.

“As hydraulic systems are asked to do more, our customers are increasingly looking for hose products that can withstand very high pressures in a variety of sizes – without sacrificing flexibility,” said Salih Karayagiz Product Manager EMEA –Hydraulic hoses, Eaton. “The new EC600 X-FLEX spiral hose is designed to be up to 24 percent more flexible for easier handling during installation, while withstanding over one million impulse cycles with an operating pressure of420 bar.”

The hose offers both four and six spiral wire construction that is operable at temperatures from -40°C (-40°F) to +121°C (+250°F) with no fluid leakage between hose and fitting when the machine shuts down and the system cools. The EC600 X-FLEX is compatible with Eaton’s 4S fitting series in sizes -12 and -16 and 6S fitting series in size -20 and does not require skiving operations. In addition, Eaton’s 1W type internal skive fitting series is qualified and guarantees an impulse life of one million cycles.

This hose also exceeds the requirements of the Isobaric Hydraulic Hose Standard ISO18752-DC in combination with Eaton’s 1W type fittings.
