Biodiesel hoses feature high performance in high temperatures

Power management company Eaton has launched the GH100 and GH101 hoses for high-percentage biodiesel blend and high-temperature oil applications. Unlike standard fuel hoses that 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 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.

Unlike conventional hoses that deteriorate at 100°C, the GH100 and GH101 hoses are qualified for -40 to 150°C with B2, B5 and B20 biodiesels, and -40 to 125°C with B100 biodiesel.With synthetic oils, such as those used in Transmission Oil Cooler applications, GH100 and GH101 are qualified to -40 to 150°C.

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 sulphur diesel fuels. Customers also have a choice of abrasion-resistant fabric or rubber cover and multiple fitting options.
