Gates Introduces New Hydraulic Hose Line

Gates, a leading provider of application-specific fluid power and power transmission solutions, is redefining high-pressure hydraulic performance with the introduction of the MegaSys™ MXG™ 4K hydraulic hose. Qualified to one million impulse cycles, this highly differentiated hose is a lightweight, compact, highly flexible drop-in replacement for conventional spiral hoses. Gates XtraTuff™ Plus cover, a standard upgrade on MXG 4K, offers improved abrasion and ozone resistance, providing improved durability when powering the most demanding fluid power applications.

“MXG 4K combines our newest materials with Gates’ advanced processing technologies to create yet another product that stands out in the market,” said Mike Haen, vice president, global product line management. “Our customers’ applications require a lighter weight, more flexible, compact hose; so we tasked our engineers to design a new class of premium hydraulics to exceed the performance typically achieved with wire spiral constructions, but with the lower weight and flexibility driven by Gates next generation wire-braid technology.”

Tested under the same conditions as Gates’ popular EFG4K MegaSpiral™ hose, the MXG 4K offers:

  • Ultimate Flexibility
  • Weight Reduction
  • Compact Design
  • Extreme Durability and High Temperature Performance
  • Abrasion and Ozone Resistance to Battle External Factors

MXG 4K is compliant with and exceeds ISO 18752 280DC and SAE 100R19 requirements, exceeds performance criteria of SAE 100R12, EN 856 R12, and ISO 3862 R12; size 16 and also exceeds EN 856 4SP ratings.
