This high-quality hose is designed for use in applications where stainless braided hose is not required. It has a special textile braid reinforcement and a black elastomer cover over a synthetic nitrile lining.
The wide operating temperature range of -40°C to 150°C (-40°F to 302°F) and 250 psi operating pressure rating (1,000 psi burst pressure) make this hose perfect for oil lines. Besides being lower in cost than braided stainless hose, the special barbed hose ends are available in BSP threads as well as AN sizes. This makes it easy to adapt to British oil coolers, oil pumps, etc. This hose is also an NHRA-Accepted "Woven-Pushlock Line."
Use with the following barbed hose ends:
Black Aluminum Barbed Hose to AN Female Hose End Fittings (Part No. 3488)
Black Aluminum Barbed Hose to AN Male Hose End Fittings (Part No. 3497-002)
Black Aluminum Barbed Hose to Unequal Size AN Female Hose End Fittings (Part No. 3499)
Barbed Hose to BSP Female Hose Ends (Part Nos. 3292 and 3294).
Hose end fittings are sold separately.
To secure this hose to a barbed fitting, we recommend Oetiker Hose Clamps (Part No. 3295-Size, sold separately). These maintain proper tension after many heating and cooling cycles, which standard hose clamps cannot. This prevents the rubber from extruding out from under the clamp and causing a loss of clamping force.
