FAQ & Resources
What is the shelf life of Gates hose?
The shelf life of hydraulic hoses can vary due to factors such as storage environment and the specific rubber materials used. Quantifying the exact shelf life is challenging since numerous variables can influence the hose’s condition. However, by taking proper storage precautions, it is generally possible to achieve a shelf life of 3 to 5 years. It should be noted that exceeding this timeframe may lead to a noticeable decrease in the hose’s service life, which is highly dependent on the specific storage environment variables in play.
What is the temperature rating of Gates hydraulic hose?
Depending on the hose the temperature rating will differ. All gates’ hoses have a minimum operating temperature of -40ºC with the maximum temperature rating going up to +150 ºC with the C5C-XH Xtreme heat hose. Please note that all maximum temperature ratings differ and will have to be looked at in specific datasheets.
