Aeroquip Introduces New Fire-Resistant Hose —Literature Available

Aeroquip Corporation of Jackson, Mich., has added a new member to its family of AQP hose styles—FC234 AQP fire-resistant hose. Developed by Aeroquip for the Industrial Division, FC234 hose has proven to be a superior fuel line for critical marine applications in commercial marine, industrial marine, and industrial equipment markets.

Aeroquip FC234 AQP hose features a highly visible blue cover that will not support combustion, and a permanently embossed layline.

The smaller sizes also feature a built-in woven refractory fiber insulation layer that maintains f i r e - r e s i s t a n c e without extra sleeves or asbestos fiber. The FC- 234 hose survives exposure for 21 L> minutes in a gasoline-fed fire with peak temperatures beyond 1200 F.

Aeroquip engineers developed FC234 hose to meet U.S. Coast Guard (46CFR56.60-25c) and Underwriters Laboratories fire test requirements (UL-1114) without a separate firesleeve. Aeroquip FC234 hose is said to be easier to assemble and install than conventional hose covered with a sleeve, and is less expensive than sleeve-protected hose styles designed for comparable use.

The new FC234 hose, like all Aeroquip AQP hoses, incorporates a tube and cover made from a superior elastomeric material which offers broad fluid compatibility and indefinite shelf life.
