by editor

Count on Gates® innovation for optimal performance across the full range of fluid power applications.

Gates® Australia has released a number of innovative new fluid power products into the Australian and New Zealand markets in the last 18 months, all of these new products set new benchmarks over traditional industrial hose products.

Gates product development teams have created innovative new products that deliver in four core areas:

LESS WEIGHT
Gates® designed these products to be lower weight for easier handling, quicker installation, and reduced equipment weight.

EASIER INSTALLATION
Gates® latest innovations require significantly less force to bend for safer, quicker, and less fatiguing routing and installation.

ADVANCED PERFORMANCE
The product of Gates’ materials science expertise, these innovative products are engineered to deliver mission critical performance for demanding applications and tough conditions.

STREAMLINED SELECTION
Gates® has qualified these latest innovations to multiple industry specifications – making it easier to know you have the right hose for the job.

Some of these new products include:

GATES® MEGASYS™ MXT™ WITH XTRATUFF™ PLUS COVER HYDRAULIC HOSES
MXT™ was designed to address our customers’ evolving application challenges. Using materials science and process innovation, combined with a patent-pending construction, Gates offers a hydraulic solution that is lighter, stronger, and more flexible. Made with strong, high-performance reinforcement and high quality, abrasion-resistant rubber, MXT™ is a universally applicable premium product offering performance above industry standards. Its diversified application allows you to consolidate inventory while giving you exactly the hose you need, when you need it.

Now with Gates® XtraTuff™ Plus cover, available on MXT™ hose offers improved abrasion and ozone resistance, delivering increased durability to power your most demanding fluid power applications.

Features:

  • More flexible with up to 40 per cent lower force-to-bend
  • for faster and more ergonomic installation
  • Up to 30 per cent lighter weight for easier handling
  • Tested to 3X impulse criteria (600,000 cycles)
  • Consolidate inventory with a universal, multiuse hose
  • Compatible with MegaCrimp™ Couplings and Gates® Crimpers

GATES® MEGASYS™ MXG™ 4K HYDRAULIC HOSES
Built with our proprietary wire-braid process technology, MegaSys™ MXG™ 4K hose is lightweight, highly flexible, and qualified to ONE MILLION impulse cycles — it’s a drop-in replacement for conventional spiral hoses.

Features:

  • Exceeds performance criteria of ISO 18752 280DC, SAE 100R12, EN856 R12, and ISO 3862 R12; size -16 also rated for EN856 4SP
  • For inventory consolidation, also exceeds SAE 100R19
  • 1,000,000 cycle impulse life exceeds industry standards (2X spiral and 5X wire braid standards) with GS couplings
  • Impulse tested to the same parameters as Gates® EFG4K spiral hose (pressure, temperature and bend radius)
  • Compact construction with excellent flexibility and lower force-to-bend for faster and more ergonomic installation (force-to-bend is 40 per cent better and OD is eight per cent smaller)
  • 30 per cent lighter weight for easier handling and installation
  • Gates® XtraTuff™ Plus cover comes standard on MXG™, providing abrasion and ozone resistance
  • Utilises Gates® GS GlobalSpiral™ couplings compatible with Gates® Crimpers

GATES® MULTI MASTER™ GMV™ MEGAFLEX™ MULTIUSE HOSE
