MegaSys® Pressure Hose Line

Gates MegaSys® Pressure hoses bend and bend – down to half EN/SAE bend radius. In fact, Gates MegaSys® Pressure hoses bend to half the bend radius of other EN 853 1SN, EN 853 2SN, EN 856 4SP and SAE 100R4 type hoses. They’re ideal for tight applications. And their incredible flexibility means you can use less hose for each application.

MegaSys® Pressure Hose benefits

  • Reduces hose length requirements up to 47%
  • Reduces inventory requirements
  • Flexibility allows routing in small spaces
  • Tight bend radius means fewer bent tube fittings
  • Plumbs and bends easier than conventional hoses

MegaSys® Pressure Hose features

  • A full line of hoses designed for one-half EN/SAE bend radius at full EN/SAE pressure
  • Longer life in applications where equipment movement causes sharp bends in hydraulic hose
  • Increased flexibility for easier hose installation M3K, M4K+, M5K and CM2T meet tough flex-impulse testing that flexes hose during impulse pressure testing; simulates severe equipment applications

MegaTuff® Abrasion Resistant Hose Covers
MegaTuff® survives the harshest applications. Cover abrasion is the first cause of premature failure of standard hydraulic hose in rugged environments such as mining, injection moulding, rock quarries or construction. Gates MegaTuff® is the long-lasting solution to the problem of abrasion. Thanks to the cover, made of a special hybrid compound, MegaTuff® hose is exceptionally resistant to abrasion, but also to oil, ozone, UV rays, chemicals and weathering. It eliminates the need for costly hose protection such as spring guards or nylon sleeving, thus reducing the total material cost.

Built mega-tough. The innovative manufacturing process guarantees superior adhesion of the MegaTuff® cover to the hose. The hose will not peel off, remains flexible and guarantees minimum bend radius performance. The combination of the MegaSys® Pressure hoses with the MegaTuff® cover offers superior impulse performance and good flexibility on all sizes.

MegaTuff® stands up to extended use. During stringent abrasion tests (ISO 6945) MegaTuff® hose exceeded one million cycles with no failure. That is more than three hundred times longer than standard rubber hose. MegaTuff® outperforms any other abrasion resistant hose on the market today.

MegaTuff® stands up to severe abrasion conditions. Remains unharmed when in contact with sharp edges, debris or extraneous objects.

  • Ideal for bundled hose applications
  • Resists wear when dragged along metal or rough surfaces
  • Eliminates need for spring guards or other hose protection
  • Resists cracking from UV rays

MegaTuff® stands for superior resistance to:

  • Abrasion (300x of standard hose)
  • Ozone
  • Weather and UV
  • In-oil application

XtraTuff™: the best alternative when you need an extremely flexible, highly abrasion resistant hose.

The Gates XtraTuff™ cover offers 25 times the abrasion resistance of standard cover hydraulic hose as per ISO 6945 standard, while fully maintaining the MegaSys® Pressure flexibility. It guarantees excellent performance in hose-to-hose and hose-to-metal applications. Resistant to oil, ozone and UV-rays.
