Hydraulic oil lines where electrical non-conductivity is required (for use in applications where there is potential for contact with high voltage sources). Suitable for use with mineral, vegetable and most ester based hydraulic fluids. Heat and hydrolysis stabilised for use with water based hydraulic fluids up to +70°C (+158°F). Smooth inner tube for high flow rate; and smooth, easily cleaned cover. The high strength, non-metallic reinforcement gives these hoses excellent corrosion and fatigue resistance, and low elongation of ±2% at maximum dynamic working pressure.
TUBE: White, oil resistant seamless thermoplastic (Polyester).
REINFORCEMENT: One or two braids of aramid fibre.
COVER: Orange, oil and abrasion resistant thermoplastic (Polyurethane). Cover is non-perforated.
Meets or Exceeds the Performance Requirements of:
AS 3791 100R8, EN 855 TYPE R8, ISO 3949, SAE 100R8.
FEATURES: Meets non-conductivity requirements of SAE 100R7, AS 3791 100R7, EN 855 Type 7 (maximum leakage does not exceed 50 µA when subjected to 75 kV/305 mm or 250 kV/m for 5 minutes). Incorrect storage and use, particularly that leading to oil or moisture entering the reinforcement, may adversely affect electrical properties.
TEMPERATURE RANGE: From -40°C to +100°C (-40°F to +212°F). Air & Water +70 ˚C (+158 ˚F). For water, emulsions etc. see page 58.
WORKING PRESSURE: Maximum working pressures are based on 4:1 safety factor (maximum working pressure to minimum burst pressure).
