Kurt Tuff™ Hose has a unique design allowing bending twice as tight as standard SAE hose with half the bend radius. Reinforced internally with two braided layers of high tensile steel wire, this hose retains flexibility with enhanced durability. With an abrasion resistant outer cover (10 times as resistant compared to standard hose cover), Kurt Tuff™ hose is rated to 1 million impulse cycles.
The hose is lightweight compared to other hoses in its pressure range and it can withstand temperatures from -40°F up to 250°F. It also meets or exceeds the SAE DIN 20023 requirements and meets flame resistant MSHA designation.
Applications for Kurt Tuff™ hose include a wide range of spiral hose installations with high pressure ratings. Equipment benefiting from the rugged qualities of Kurt Tuff™ hose include off highway vehicles, oil drilling equipment, trucks, construction equipment, large machinery, and most heavy duty hydraulic applications.
Kurt Tuff™ hose diameters available range from 1/4 inch to 1 inch ID and utilizes the Kurt full line of couplings which are interchangeable with other popular brands. Kurt offers both hose and couplings in cost effective combination packages and provides special engineering assistance for difficult applications.
