Danfoss Power Solutions launched its Aeroquip by Danfoss FC250H and Weatherhead by Danfoss H250H hoses. Designed to exceed SAE 100R5 performance levels, these two-braid hoses are lighter and more flexible than typical three-braid 100R5 hoses, enabling easier hose routing and reducing application weight.
FC250H and H250H hoses are tested to 300,000 impulse cycles. The hoses weigh 20% less than conventional three-braid hoses, decreasing the overall vehicle weight and delivering fuel consumption savings over the life of the machine. With half the bend radius of the 100R5 requirement, a 25% tighter bend radius than competitive hoses, and a 15% smaller outer diameter than the 100R5 maximum, FC250H and H250H hoses are designed for the tight spaces common on today’s machinery. The hoses offer increased routing flexibility that enables engineers to optimize system design without sacrificing performance.
