Eaton silicone hose Eaton’s new line of silicone hose for extreme temperature, vibration, and chemically challenging applications is available in sizes and configurations suitable for use on turbo and charge air coolers, heater circuits, and coolant system connections at temperatures from -65 to 500 F. Silicone provides the mechanical properties and chemical resistance in temperature extremes that traditional elastomers cannot meet. Eaton says aramid and polyester reinforced silicone hose resists cracking, peeling, ozone and aging, compensates for misalignment and offsets vibration. Typical applications include heavy-duty truck engines, buses, and off-highway construction equipment.
