Gates Australia redefines high-pressure hydraulic performance with the introduction to the Australian and New Zealand markets of the MegaSys MXG 4K hydraulic hose.
Qualified to one million impulse cycles, this highly differentiated hose is a lightweight, compact, highly flexible drop-in replacement for conventional spiral hoses.
Gates XtraTuff Plus cover, a standard upgrade on MXG 4K, offers improved abrasion and ozone resistance, providing improved durability when powering the most demanding fluid power applications.
The MXG 4K combines the newest materials with Gates’s advanced processing technologies to create a standout product, says Gates vice president of global product line management Mike Haen.
“Our customers’ applications require a lighter weight, more flexible compact hose, so we tasked our engineers to design a new class of premium hydraulics with the lower weight and flexibility driven by Gates’s next-gen wire-braid technology,” he says.
They delivered: the MXG 4K is an industry breakthrough.
Tested under the same conditions as Gates’s popular EFG4K MegaSpiral hose, the MXG 4K offers 40 per cent more flexibility than conventional spiral hoses; 30 per cent lighter weight; a compact design with an eight per cent reduction in size; and extreme durability and high temperature performance.
The XtraTuff Plus cover is engineered to be 25 times more abrasion resistant than Gates’s standard cover, and also provides enhanced ozone resistance.
“Truly a multi-use hose, the MXG 4K serves smaller and more congested hydraulic systems, helping to improve assembly line speeds and achieve tight routings while delivering additional abrasion resistance and ozone protection,” says Cindy Cookson, director of global product line management for hydraulics.
“MXG 4K provides our OEM clients and distributors, and ultimately the end user, with a new, innovative technology that has the ability to improve equipment performance and overall output while reducing warranty and repairs.”
MXG 4K is compliant with and exceeds ISO 18752 280DC and SAE 100R19 requirements, exceeds performance criteria of SAE 100R12, EN 856 R12 and ISO 3862 R12; size 16 and also exceeds EN 856 4SP ratings.
Importantly, MXG 4K is also MHSA, FRAS and MDG41 certified.
MXG 4K is now available for order in Australia and New Zealand. For more information visit www.gatesaustralia.com.au/mxg.
