Push on hose and fittings

This is a textile hose with synthetic rubber inner tube, one layer of textile braid reinforcement and a synthetic rubber outer layer.
Assembly of hose to fitting is very simple, the fitting is simply pushed into the hose, this hose has the reinforcing braid woven in such a way that the grip on the fir tree type fitting increases as the force trying to push it out increases.
This hose has had a resurgence of popularity recently, especially since aluminium fittings were introduced. Some examples of this hose have a 150C rating, however instances of the fitting blowing out of the hose at extreme temperatures have been reported on some makes (not Aeroquip), extra clamping should be considered where very high temperatures are involved.
This type of hose and fitting can be interchangeable between brands but only genuine Aeroquip assemblies can be guaranteed.  We can provide a stainless steel braid covering for these hoses, this does not impart any greater strength only enhanced appearance and abrasion resistance, factory swaged ferrules or finisher such as a Pro clamp must be used to hide frayed ends.

1. The genuine Aeroquip product in plated steel, except their JIC straight fittings are brass, they have brass hose finishers for JIC, plastic red for BSP and black for metric.
