G8K Hoses Are Rated up to 8,000 psi Working Pressure in All Sizes, Making Them Ideal for High-Pressure, High-Impulse Hydraulic Applications

Denver, CO - The Fluid Power unit of Gates Corporation, a leading manufacturer of industrial and automotive products, today announced G8K MegaSpiral® hydraulic hose as part of its new and improved MegaSys® product line. The spiral-wire constant pressure hoses are rated up to 8,000 psi working pressure in all sizes and have been tested to an industry-leading one million impulse cycles. They set new standards for hydraulic hose in extreme high-pressure, high-impulse applications, outperforming any other 8,000 psi (55.2 MPa) hose on the market today.

Bending up to one-half the SAE specifications, G8K hoses offer increased flexibility and shorter overall hose assembly lengths. The hoses require fewer bent tube fittings and can be routed in tight spaces for easy installation, making them ideal for applications found in mobile construction, boom arms, hydrostatic drives, mining trucks, excavators and agricultural machinery. They also offer extended life in bending, flexing applications to reduce downtime and decrease hose costs.

The G8K MegaSpiral hose construction features four alternating layers (six in some larger sizes) of spiraled, high tensile steel and a nitrile tube for use with biodegradable hydraulic fluids. The hoses are available with abrasion-resistant MegaTuff® covers and are compatible with new two-piece, no-skive G8K couplings for leak-free performance and easy assembly fabrication.

The hoses also feature a color-coded layline and constant pressure ratings, making them easier to identify in stock and in service while reducing inventory requirements. Their yellow layline indicates hose trade name; size and pressure; SAE, EN or DIN standard; and MSHA flame resistance compliance.
