Eaton has recently announced the release of the Synflex Optimum family of thermoplastic hydraulic hoses and fittings. These products are designed to work together to improve hydraulic system performance, simplify assembly and optimize inventory.
The Synflex Optimum hoses are built to withstand extreme environmental conditions and high abrasion applications. The hoses offer the low temperature and flexibility of polyester lined hoses, along with the chemical compatibility of nylon lined hoses. Available with pressure ratings from 70 bar to 350 bar, the hoses are powerful for heavy lifting and handling equipment.
The Synflex Optimum fittings feature a compact design and smaller profile for easier routing and assembly. The fittings follow a simple one-piece design to reduce matching errors and assembly time while eliminating brazing failure risks. Eaton’s captive nut helps eliminate weak spots and can increase safety in applications with high levels of vibration, as well as prevent cracks and leaks that lead to unplanned downtime.
