Denver, CO (PRWEB) February 11, 2011
The Fluid Power unit of Gates Corporation, a leading manufacturer of industrial and automotive products, today announced its expanded and re-engineered MegaSys® product line for hydraulic systems. Its constant pressure spiral-wire and wire-braid hoses can be bent up to one-third the SAE specification, and its MegaCrimp® and GlobalSpiral™ couplings guarantee leak-free connections with MegaSys hoses with maximum working pressures as high as 8,000 psi.
The flexible MegaSys hoses can be routed in tight spaces for easy installation, and overall hose assembly length and cost are reduced by as much as 64 percent. In addition, the hydraulic hoses feature MegaTuff® or XtraTuff™ hose covers for unparalleled abrasion resistance.
A new layline treatment, used exclusively for MegaSys hoses, brings a distinctive design and pressure color coding system to make the hoses easy to identify in stock and in service. It indicates hose trade name; size; pressure; SAE, EN or DIN standard; and USMSHA flame resistance compliance.
