Eaton Introduces New Weatherhead(R) Braided Hose with Superior Abrasion Resistance

CLEVELAND ... Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation is introducing a new Weatherhead-brand braided hose with superior abrasion resistance.

New Weatherhead RhinoHide(R) II hose offers 700 times more abrasion resistance than any known polymer-covered hose. It won't wear out in high-pressure applications, even those as high as 3,000 PSI.

This extreme-duty qualification makes the hose ideal for logging, construction, mining and other off-highway jobs. An ultra-high molecular polyethylene cover helps make RhinoHide II hose suitable for specific water applications as well.

The new hose also lowers overall hose assembly costs by eliminating the need for abrasion-resistant sleeving.

RhinoHide II hose is qualified for use with Eaton's newly launched WeatherGRIP(TM) hose ends.

Technical information for RhinoHide II hose is included in Bulletin W-HOOV-MS001-E1, available on the Eaton website at
