Gates Corporation Announces Enhancement to MegaSpiral® Hoses Used in Integrated Hydraulic Systems

The Constant Pressure Hydraulic Hose Line Has an Increased Bend Radius, Offering Greater Flexibility and Reduced Costs in Fluid Power Applications .

The Fluid Power unit of Gates Corporation, a leading manufacturer of industrial and automotive products, has made improvements to its MegaSpiral® hoses, which are part of its MegaSys® product line for hydraulic systems. The constant pressure spiral-wire hoses can now bend up to one-half the SAE specifications, offering increased flexibility and reducing inventory requirements.

The new bend radius shortens overall hose assembly length and enables MegaSpiral® hoses to be routed in tight spaces for easy installation in hydraulic applications. The spiral-wire hoses also require fewer bent tube fittings and extend life in bending, flexing applications, reducing downtime and decreasing hose costs by as much as 47 percent.

In addition, MegaSpiral® hoses can handle up to 6,000 psi working pressures and MegaTuff® covers help resist abrasion.
