Medium to high pressure hydraulic oil applications. The small bend radius, temperature resistance and light weight of RYCO RQP5 hose make it suitable for under the bonnet automotive/ trucking applications including hydraulic oil, diesel fuel, lubrication oil and transmission oil coolers. Sizes RQP54 to RQP512 also comply with SAE J1402 Type AII ”Automotive Air Brake Hose” for use in truck ”air brake systems including flexible connections from frame to axle, tractor to trailer, trailer to trailer, and other unshielded air lines that are exposed to potential pull or impact”. RQP5 may be used with compressed air if maximum working pressure is reduced by 30%. RQP5 hose is normally used where there is minimal abrasion to the outside cover. If abrasion is likely, support the hose away from the source of abrasion using mounting clamps, or protect with RWA Wire Armour or RSG Spiral Guard. RQP5 is a reduced bore hose. It has a similar Inside Diameter to steel or copper tubing of the same nominal (Outside Diameter) size. See page 340 for Branding Information.
TUBE: Black, oil resistant synthetic rubber.
REINFORCEMENT: Polyester inner braid covered with one braid of high tensile steel wire.
COVER: Blue polyester textile braid. Skiving of cover is not required.
MSHA – FLAME RESISTANCE: Meets Flame Resistant Designation “U.S. MSHA” of the US Department of Labor, Mine Safety and Health Administration and Flame Resistant requirements of Australian Standard AS 2660 and Method of Test AS 1180.10B when used with FS1072 Fire Sleeve.
TEMPERATURE RANGE: From -40°C to +150°C (-40°F to +302°F). See page 58.
WORKING PRESSURE: Maximum working pressures are based on 4:1 safety factor (maximum working pressure to minimum burst pressure).
