Silicone Hose Developed for Challenging Applications

Eaton Corporation recently announced a new line of silicone hose products for extreme temperature, high-vibration, and chemically challenging applications. The new silicone hoses are available in sizes and configurations suitable for use on turbo and charge air coolers, heater circuits, and coolant system connections at temperature from -54°C to +260°C.

Silicone provides the mechanical properties and chemical resistance in temperature extremes that traditional elastomers cannot meet.

“Eaton’s silicone hose products are available today for turbo and charge air coolers in straight as well as formed and ‘hump’ hoses not previously available to Eaton customers,” said Eaton product manager Donna Giffin. “Typical applications include heavy-duty truck engines, buses, and off-highway construction equipment.”

One of the new Eaton aramid-reinforced silicone configurations, series FF908035 and FF90836 is designed to resist fatigue in supercharger applications.

Eaton’s new silicone hoses are available in straight lengths of three feet, hot and cold hump sections, charge air cooler (CAC), cold and hot couplings, and hot and cold 45°-and 90° elbows.
