Hydraulic Couplings And Hose

Posted on May 16, 2014

Kurt Hydraulics has developed a line of fluid power couplings combined with high pressure braided hose targeted toward applications that require high pressure capabilities and temperature ranges in the heavy-duty off-highway equipment Industry. The 6W couplings are a one-piece, bite-the-wire crimp coupling with non-skive design that eliminates cover skiving before assembly to the hose, the company said.

The 6W couplings are simple to assemble and install and are engineered to eliminate leaks and in-field failures caused by shock and vibration. They are available in 85 different types and in the most common 1.25, 1.50 and 2.0 in. sizes.

Designed to work with SAE R13 and 4SH hydraulic hose — also available from Kurt —  the 6W couplings can withstand pressures up to 6000 psi and have an operating temperature range of -40° to 250° F. The couplings are finished with RoHS-compliant trivalent Chromum-6 free process, a highly durable finish which exceeds the industry SAE standard for withstanding hours of salt spray, the company said.
