Braided Hose Extends Service Life, Manages Environment

Aug. 24, 2022
Danfoss' new offering provides higher reliability and extended service life.

The Aeroquip two-wire braided hose offers higher reliability and extended service life, reducing maintenance time, costs and waste. The EC881 hose offers a 35% higher pressure rating, 26% higher operating temperature, eight times more abrasion resistance, 67% greater flexibility (⅓ SAE bend radius) and five times more impulse life than the standard EN 857 type 2SC hose.

With its higher pressure capabilities, EC881 hose can replace heavy, rigid four-wire spiral hose in certain applications, providing a direct cost savings of up to 30% as well as several design benefits. Braided hose is much more flexible than spiral hose, which may enable OEMs to reroute and reduce hose assembly lengths, contributing to further cost savings.
