SAE 100R16 Hose

SAE 100R16 is a specific hydraulic hose standard established by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). This standard defines the requirements for a hydraulic hose designed for use in medium-pressure hydraulic systems. SAE 100R16 hydraulic hoses are commonly used in applications where moderate pressure is required, and they are known for their compact design and flexibility.



  • Construction: SAE 100R16 hydraulic hoses are typically constructed with a two-layer structure, consisting of an inner tube and a compact, high-tensile steel wire braid reinforcement with an outer cover.
  • Inner Tube: The inner tube of the hose is usually made of synthetic rubber or thermoplastic material, serving as a barrier to contain hydraulic fluid. It must be resistant to the type of fluid it will come into contact with.
  • High-Tensile Steel Wire Braid Reinforcement: SAE 100R16 hoses feature a compact, high-tensile steel wire braid reinforcement that provides strength and flexibility. This design allows for a smaller bend radius and more compact hoses while still withstanding moderate pressure.
  • Outer Cover: The outer cover of the hose is typically made of a synthetic rubber compound that is resistant to abrasion, weather, and environmental conditions. It protects the inner layers from external damage and helps prolong the hose’s lifespan.
  • Pressure Rating: SAE 100R16 hydraulic hoses are designed for medium-pressure hydraulic systems and have a pressure rating that typically ranges from 2,200 to 5,800 psi (pounds per square inch), depending on the size and manufacturer.
  • Temperature Range: These hoses are designed to operate within a specific temperature range, usually from -40°C to 100°C (-40°F to 212°F), but the exact range may vary depending on the manufacturer and materials used.
  • Application: SAE 100R16 hoses are used in various medium-pressure hydraulic applications, such as industrial machinery, construction equipment, agricultural machinery, and other systems where moderate pressure hydraulic fluid transfer is required.
  • Compatibility: SAE 100R16 hydraulic hoses are designed to work with a variety of hydraulic fluids, including mineral oils, water-based fluids, and some synthetic oils. It’s essential to ensure compatibility with the specific fluid being used in your application.
