Part No. 3480
811 Stainless Steel Braided PTFE Racing Hose, 8AN - per inch
This new hose was developed with professional racing teams who needed a super-flexible fuel hose with excellent flow that wouldn't collapse under vacuum.
The anti-static PTFE liner is compatible with all types of racing fluids (including coolant, oil, brake fluid, gasoline, alcohol, and nitromethane) and is resistant to fuel vapor penetration. Unique semi-corrugated liner design is much more flexible than other types of hose, but the smooth bore retains optimum flow. The hose ends require no special tooling to assemble, so you can build hoses at the track. Stainless steel outer braid has a copper-colored strand for easy identification. All sizes are rated to 30 in-Hg vacuum service up to 130°C (266°F). Temperature range -70°C to 260°C (-90°F to 500°F).
Note: This hose is only compatible with our 811 Tube-Style Hose Ends (Part No. 3481) or 811 Forged Hose Ends (Part No. 3484). It is not compatible with any other hose ends, and cannot be clamped on a hose barb!
Hose Assembly Instructions for Type 811 and Type 910 Hose
|Type 811 Stainless Steel Braided Racing Hose
We also offer 910 Aramid Braided Racing Hose (Part No. 3490), which features the same anti-static PTFE liner with a super-lightweight Aramid outer braid.
Please Note: Due to manufacturing limitations, the PTFE liner is not one continuous extrusion, as on other hoses. The liner consists of shorter lengths (approximately 20-30 feet long, depending on the hose size) which are spliced together to allow the outer braid to be produced. These spliced areas are visibly necked-down and marked to be easy to spot. Splices must not be used in hoses! Orders for less than 20 feet will not contain a splice. If you are ordering more than 20 feet of hose, please let us know the minimum uncut lengths that you require.
