Kurt Hydraulics’ new E-Z Bend Hose aimed at easier routing

Kurt Hydraulics E-Z Bend 4SH Hose Kurt Hydraulics new E-Z Bend Hose has half the bend radius of standard hose for easier routing and more space savings. Providing both greater flexibility and strength, E-Z Bend hose is ideal for today’s compact applications requiring hydraulic hose with tight bend radius using minimal installation force.

Ideal for high pressure hydraulic oil lines in mobile hydraulic applications, E-Z Bend Hose has four spiral layers of high tensile steel wire braid to handle the most robust and demanding applications. These include construction equipment, agricultural machinery, machine tools, molding presses, oil and gas applications and more. E-Z Bend Hose tube material is oil resistant synthetic rubber with reinforcement of four spiral layers of high tensile steel wire braid. The working temperature range for E-Z Bend Hose is -40°F to +212°F and meets flame resistant MSHA designation.

Available in following four sizes in 5/8, 3/4, 1 and 1-1/4 in. inside diameter with corresponding 1.07, 1.27,1.52 and 1.79 in. outside diameters. Note, working hose pressures range from 5,000 psi to 6,000 psi. Minimum burst pressures range from 20,000 psi to 24,000 psi, with all psi measurements dependent on hose size.

Kurt W-Style Couplings are ideal for use with E-Bend Hose and handle a wide range of hydraulic applications. Available in 562 different end types, W-Style couplings are designed for non-skive SAE 100 R12 and all wire braided hose applications. They are available in sizes 4-32, non-skive all sizes of R12, non-skive 4SH 12-20 sizes and a full line of metrics. These Kurt W-style couplings feature corrosion resistant ROHS compliant plating and are compatible with most model crimpers.
