COLORNO, Italy - September 4, 2008 The launch of this new range at the Fluid Compomac exhibition follows the trend for high pressure hoses with high abrasion resistance yet flexible enough to be used on tight systems of hose reeling applications.

The range of 076 - R8 Extra Tough - hoses has been developed to meet these requirements, particularly interesting for OEM hose reel systems. Although the bend radius is identical to the standard range of R8 hoses, the 076 R8 Extra Tough version offers better kink resistance when exposed and used in demanding circumstances. The particular advantages have led to well-known manufacturers of truck cranes and rescue equipment preferring the 076 range over standard hoses.

Because of the typical applications the 076 Extra Tough range is available in 5 different sizes from DN5 to DN12 mm (3/16" to 1/2"), also in twin or multi-line version. The entire range has been thoroughly tested and approved with the range of SAA ferrules, the most common range for yarn braided hoses. This technical support is particularly reassuring and helpful for the Transfer Oil distributors producing the hose assemblies.

Product details and crimping specifications can be found in the relevant 076 - R8 Extra tough page.
