The proprietary Alfa Tech Series of hoses from ALFAGOMMA, designed with the application engineer in mind, greatly simplifies system routing by offering the same working pressure ratings for all sizes of the respective hose.
Medium pressure service with petroleum based hydraulic fluids such as hot oil, grease, lubricants, and crude oils, air and water. Developed to withstand punishing conditions and to meet increasing pressure pulsing, flexing and temperature demands not currently covered by International specifications.
Features extraordinary flexibility, excellent bend radii properties, superior performance under flex-impulse conditions, and exceptional long life. Tested over 1,000,000 impulse cycles at 120% of rated working pressure.
Greater design and installation flexibility - identical working pressure ratings for all sizes of a given series makes for easier design and installation.
Extraordinary flexibility - excellent bend radius properties… makes installation easier.
Requires less hose footage- tighter bends mean less hose is needed for a typical job.
Reduced inventory requirements - reduced hose usage and continuity of working pressure ratings throughout each series means reduced inventory requirements.
Exceptionally long service life - superior performance under flex-impulse conditions… tested with ALFAGOMMA couplings for more than 1,000,000 impulse cycles at a minimum of 120% of rated working pressure at 250° F. (121° C).
Clear branding and coding - makes selection and identification easier.
Meets or exceeds EN 857 1SC (sizes 04 and 06).
Meets flame resistance acceptance designation US MSHA IC-152/8
