Biodiesel hoses feature high performance in extremely high Temperatures

15 February, 2017

Power management company Eaton has launched its GH100 and GH101 hoses for high-percentage biodiesel blend and high-temperature oil applications.


Unlike many standard fuel hoses that only last one to two years, Eaton’s GH100 and GH101 solutions are engineered for maximum performance in systems with a variety of fuel types, featuring what is described as a unique polymer that effectively resists degradation.

The GH100 and GH101 hoses are designed to perform in high-temperature mobile applications; including trucks, busses, agriculture and construction equipment and eco-friendly power vehicles. Compatible with high-percentage biodiesel fuels and new synthetic oils, the solutions support a longer hose life while also ensuring safety requirements and quality standards are met.

‘Future of sustainable hydraulics’

“Standard hoses not compatible with biofuels can prematurely crack, leak or burst at high temperatures, leading to a host of safety, liability and warranty issues,” said Dimitar Atanasov, product manager at Eaton. “Ushering in the future of sustainable hydraulics, Eaton's new family of biodiesel hoses are tested and engineered to excel in high-temperature conditions – providing users with the ultimate performance assurance and complete peace of mind.”

Unlike conventional hoses that deteriorate at 100 degrees Celsius (degC), the GH100 and GH101 hoses are qualified for -40degC to 150degC with B2, B5 and B20 biodiesels, and –

40egC to 125degC with B100 biodiesel. With synthetic oils, such as those used in Transmission Oil Cooler applications, GH100 and GH101 are qualified to -40degC to 150degC (175degC intermittent).

Additionally, because GH100 and GH101 hoses are qualified with every blend of biodiesel up to B100, users no longer have to worry about rotating between B5, B20 or higher and ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD) fuels. Customers also have a choice of abrasion-resistant fabric or rubber cover and multiple fitting options.
