Gates manufacture a variety of hoses designed for abrasive applications. Gates’ MegaTuff and ExtraTuff hoses offer superior abrasive resistance to standard hoses.
A multi spiral hose is best suited to high impulse applications.
Hydraulic hoses are generally measured by the inside diameter (I.D.) in dash sizing.
Dash sizing is based on 16th of an inch i.e. 4 = 4/16th = 1/4inch
24 =24/16th = 1-1/2inch
Isobaric relates to the working pressure rating of a given range of hose.
i.e.Gates EFG6K hose range/size perform at a working pressure of 6000psi
Gates EFG5K hose range/size perform at a working pressure of 5000psi
Gates M4K hose range perform at a working pressure of 4000psi
Gates TH8NC, TH7NC and TH18NC are all Non Conductive hydraulic hoses. Note: Even non-wire reinforced hoses may be conductive through the rubber compound itself or moisture that penetrates a pin pricked hose cover.
Mine Safety and Health Administration specifies flame-resistance properties required of hose covers used in underground mining applications. It’s also the recognised standard for flame resistance for many industries.
MDG - “Mining Design Guidelines”
41 - Guidelines for Fluid Power System Safety at Mines
The NSW Government “Resources and Energy Department” produce a range of mining design guidelines for the mining industry. Copies of mining design guidelines can be purchased from NSW Trade and Investment.
Southcott manufacture hose assemblies to customer requirements.
Because in today’s world we are different!
Can your current supplier boast the same?
If your belt is making a screeching sound this means the belt is slipping and has become shiny so it will no longer grip. Look for cracks, broken cords and tearing. Belts can also stretch and lose their tension.
There are lots of reasons belts don’t last or fail. The most common reason is belt tension. Belts can fail because of under tension or over tension. Another reason is misalignment of the pulleys causing the belt not to run true. Also check for worn pulleys. Belt breakage can happen when the belt is over tensioned or something jams the drive.
Dayco Automatic Gold Label tensioners have a patented flat spring design. Specifically engineered to meet the higher torque and power pulses exerted by today’s diesel engines, they also have rugged pulleys with 2 lifetime lubricated bearings to deliver long lasting service.
Super 2 belts are constructed using high quality materials including multiple fabric plies. Because of the high quality materials the belt does not need a cover to protect it. This means it grips better, runs cooler, is more flexible and resists cracking. These belts provide superior performance on the most brutal V-belt drives.
We have many contacts in the belt manufacturing industry, such as Goodyear, Gates and others. We will do our best to procure your required items.
The Gold Label hose has been formulated using the highest quality neoprene, EPDM, nitrile and silicon compounds. This product meets or exceeds the SAE specifications for heavy duty hoses. If you want to use the ultimate coolant hose, silicon is the answer. This hose has very high resistance to the deteriorating effects of oil, ozone, coolants and additives. It resists hardening and cracking and can last up to 6 times longer than ordinary coolant hoses.
In most cases we can, but there are machines out there with special sizes which can only be supplied by the original dealer. We have listings of many different models and recommend our heavy duty Super 2 belts and XDV series for your replacement.
We need the OEM part number of the belt. Quite often the number is stamped into the belt or can be located in your handbook. We can then, in most cases, cross over the genuine part number to our Carlise agricultural belt part number.
Yes. Carlisle are a major supplier of agricultural belts to the OEM manufacturers such as Case IHC.
Our Goodyear Spiraflex air seeder hose has superior wear resistance compared to PVC. This hose has a thermoplastic urethane liner and is very flexible. The seed tends to bounce off the hose wall instead of chipping it away like it does with PVC. Our customers have given us very positive feedback for the Spiraflex hose.
