- Construction: SAE 100R5 hydraulic hoses are typically constructed with a textile braid or one textile braid and one wire braid reinforcement, along with an inner tube and 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 compatible with the type of fluid it will come into contact with.
- Reinforcement: SAE 100R5 hoses feature textile braid reinforcement, and some versions may include an additional wire braid for added strength. This reinforcement provides flexibility and moderate strength, making them suitable for medium-pressure applications.
- 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 100R5 hydraulic hoses are designed for medium-pressure hydraulic systems and have a pressure rating that typically ranges from 800 to 1,500 psi (pounds per square inch).
- Temperature Range: These hoses are designed to operate within a specific temperature range, typically 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 100R5 hoses are suitable for a wide range of medium-pressure hydraulic applications in various industries, including industrial machinery, mobile equipment, and certain automotive systems.
- Compatibility: SAE 100R5 hydraulic hoses are designed to work with a variety of hydraulic fluids, including mineral oils, water-based fluids, and some synthetic oils. Compatibility with the specific fluid used in your application is crucial to ensure proper performance and longevity.
