Last week during IFPE, Eaton Corp.’s, Hydraulics Group, Eden Prairie, Minn., introduced the Ice Champion EC810 hose for extreme low temperature applications. This spiral wire reinforced hydraulic hose withstands temperatures as low as -57°C (-70°F) and pressures as high as 420 bar (6,100 psi) making it particularly well-suited for use in high pressure hydraulic circuits operating in polar climates.
Eaton’s Ice Champion EC810 hose has a Mining Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) approved rugged abrasion-resistant cover, a feature that further enhances its suitability for extreme-duty applications on construction and forestry equipment, oil and gas rigs, mining equipment, and other high pressure applications in frigid environments.
EC810 working temperatures range from -57°C to 100°C (-70°F to 212°F) to ensure a long operating life in demanding applications. Available in sizes -6 to -16 (4-wire) and -20 to -32
(6-wire), the EC810 hose has a maximum working pressure of 420 bar (6,100 psi) in sizes -6 to -24 and 350 bar (5,100 psi) for the -32 size. The Ice Champion EC810 hose is also approved for use with Eaton’s ‘1W’ series internal skive fitting, and a one-piece non-skive fitting for sizes -12 to -32.
