Eaton Releases New One-Piece Everflex E-Series Fittings
Eaton Corp., Eden Prairie, Minn., has introduced new one-piece Everflex E-Series Fittings. When coupled with Eaton Everflex hoses made from Teflon resin, the fittings allow users to achieve up to 33 percent higher operating pressures than current Eaton and competitive hoses. The E-Series fittings and higher pressures have been validated on Eaton’s 2807, FC465, S-TW and SC-TW series hoses.
The fittings are available in both male pipe and female 37º swivel-end configurations in carbon steel and stainless steel materials. The carbon steel offering now includes hose fittings for -8, -12 and -16 size hoses, while the new stainless steel offering covers -4 through -16 size hoses.
The Everflex hose is steam compatible and chemical resistant, making it suitable for steel mill, foundry, transit bus and air compressor applications requiring steam cleaning of an assembly or transfer of highly viscous media such as adhesives, paints or food products.
