Eaton’s new EC007 A/C hose reduces refrigeration loss to minimise environmental impacts and maximiSe uptime

January 20, 2020

 

MORGES, SWITZERLAND. … Power management company Eaton today announced the launch of the new EC007 barrier hose as part of its EverCoolTM mobile air conditioning (A/C) hose portfolio. The new hose delivers improved permeation and kink resistance for truck, agricultural and construction vehicle manufacturers.

“Building on a strong legacy of fluid conveyance product innovation, our EverCool portfolio of A/C hoses is setting a new standard for performance, flexibility and durability in the mobile A/C industry,” says Ralf Wilde, Product Manager EMEA for Fluid Conveyance, Hydraulics, Eaton. “The EverCool A/C product range, along with our global footprint, gives our customers around the world confidence that no matter the application, Eaton has a product to meet their needs.”

The EC007 barrier hose is constructed with a thermoplastic barrier layer between textile-reinforced elastomeric layers, combined with a heat-, ozone- and UV-resistant synthetic elastomer.

The new hose joins Eaton’s GH001 veneer bonded hose and the FC800 large-bore hose to complete the EverCool line. The GH001 features nearly zero permeation, a tighter bend radius, EZ-clip compatibility and the widest in-class temperature range. The FC800 large-bore hose is specifically designed for nominal sizes required for bus air conditioning systems. It is made of a blended chloroprene rubber material, a synthetic characterised by its long-lasting elasticity, heat resistance and excellent resistance to refrigerant and compressor oils. With virtually half the bend radius of comparable large-bore hoses, FC800 offers significantly greater flexibility and therefore withstands the high mechanical stress coming from the engine. The core is covered by a polyamide barrier layer, which reduces the hose permeation rate to just 0.5 kg/m²/year. All three hoses in the portfolio are qualified with multiple refrigerants, including R1234yf.

“Our customers rely on hard-working components to deliver consistent results on every job,” adds Wilde. “From minimising permeation to improving fracture and kink resistance, our EverCool portfolio is designed to keep refrigerant inside the hose, even in difficult or tight installations.”
