Eaton launches cost-competitive Winner™ PTFE hoses for demanding applications across EMEA

27 January 2021

MORGES, SWITZERLAND … Power management company Eaton today announced the launch of two new Winner™ series polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) hoses in the EMEA market. With short lead times across Europe, these cost-effective hoses are designed for demanding applications where temperature and chemical resistance, high flow rates, a low friction coefficient, flexibility and nonaging characteristics are essential.

Available in conductive (EC-TW) or nonconductive (EN-TW) variants, these thin-walled, smooth-bore PTFE hoses are suitable for a wide variety of industries. Offering performance that meets and exceeds SAE 100R14-A/B and SAE J517 standards, the new Winner hoses are ideal for applications like alternative fuels, chemical transfer, electric cooling, engines, fire/rescue air supplies, hot presses, on- and off-highway vehicles, paint spraying and steam.

The new Winner hoses are also qualified with popular Eaton fittings—including E-Series and FC Series(Aeroquip®) crimp fittings. As a result, existing customers can easily switch to the newer and more cost-effective Winner products.

“Our new Winner PTFE hoses are a win-win for customers,” said Ralf Wilde, product manager, Hydraulics, EMEA, Eaton. “They are designed to deliver performance when it matters most and at an extremely competitive price point. Robust construction means our hoses can support a wider range of demanding applications while also needing to be replaced less often. This reduces machine downtime and better protects equipment, operators and the environment. We can also offer excellent availability across the EMEA region, with a maximum lead time of just four weeks.”

Featuring a 304 stainless steel outer braid and PTFE inner tubing, the new additions to the Winner portfolio can withstand continuous flexing and vibration with low pressure losses. The hoses are rated for continuous temperatures from−54°C to 236°C, as well as working pressures up to 207 bar. In addition, they feature broad chemical resistance, high flow rates with a low friction coefficient, strong aging resistance in application and an unlimited shelf life without becoming brittle or flaking.

The Eaton Winner hose series offers standard performance hoses and fittings to support the increasing number of applications that require system-matched capabilities at a competitive price. Winner hoses and fittings are also supported by Eaton’s broad portfolio of value-added services—including design expertise, responsive technical support and a robust global supply chain.
