Eaton Biodiesel Rubber HoseMeeting the growing market demand for biodiesel blends to fuel equipment, Eaton Corporation introduces a new line of flexible rubber hose designed to use with B2 to B100 biodiesel products. GH100 hose features a hydrogenated nitrile rubber tube, wrapped with aramid/poly braid reinforcement protected by a polyester abrasion-resistant cover. The hose is qualified for under-hood use with B2 to B20 biodiesel products up to 150 degrees Celsius and with B100 products up to 125 degrees C. It is also suited for transmission oil cooler applications using synthetic lubricants at peak temperatures up to 175 degrees C. Eaton GH100 is intended, the company says, to fill a temperature-performance gap between conventional chlorinated polyethylene tube hose products and premium teflon hoses.
