Eaton’s Aeroquip MatchMate Hoses Offer Higher Pressure Ratings

Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation, Eden Prairie, Minn., announced that its Aeroquip MatchMate Global braided and spiral hydraulic hose products have been re-engineered to provide significantly higher working pressures and temperature ratings along with covers offering superior abrasion resistance. Included in the enhanced product offering are the Aeroquip GH120, GH663, GH781, GH793, and GH493 hose products.

Eaton’s Aeroquip MatchMate Global GH120 hose exceeds SAE 100R16 specifications; GH663 hose exceeds European Norm 1SN standards; GH781 hose exceeds EN 2SC standards; GH793 hose exceeds EN 2SN standards; and GH493 hose exceeds 4SP pressures in sizes -6 through -16 plus it exceeds SAE 100R12 standards.

“The new MatchMate Global products have an average 29 percent higher pressure rating than the most popular brands of directly comparable competitive hoses,” said Todd Pinkelman, Eaton senior product manager. “Individual products outperform the competition by as much as 70 percent. And that’s with a 260° F temperature rating as well.

“The more abrasion-resistant cover technology offered on MatchMate Global hoses is also an important feature,” Pinkelman said. “More than half of all hose failures we see can be attributed directly to cover abrasion.”

“Eaton has combined a number of different factors, including best practices from recent acquisitions, strategic supplier relationships, advanced engineering technologies, and state-of-the-art manufacturing and quality methodologies to achieve significant performance enhancements in these products,” Pinkelman added.
