Gates Corporation, a global, diversified industrial manufacturer of power transmission and fluid power solutions recently announced the introduction of a new multi-purpose hose line that serves the needs of three distinct markets: fuel transfer, hydraulic return and suction lines, and 20R5 coolant applications. The Multi Master™ SD MegaFlex® line is the first-of-its-kind to simultaneously meet SAE 100R4, SAE J30R5, and SAE J20R5 requirements. It has a 1:1 bend radius, an ARPM Class A tube and is also MSHA compliant.
The Multi Master™ SD MegaFlex® hose provides customers with a solution to a broad range of demanding applications. The nitrile tube has excellent oil and fuel resistance, and is compatible with air, water, and coolant. Its corrugated chloroprene cover and steel helix reinforcement give it superior 1:1 flexibility and make it effectively kink free. The hose can be used from -40°F to +250°F (- 40°C to +121°C) in both suction and discharge applications.
