Hose & Couplings
Caterpillar is an industry leader in designing and manufacturing our own Hoses and Couplings.
High quality hose products mean fewer hose changes. Cat offers a broad line of high, medium and low-pressure hoses and couplings that are engineered and tested far beyond industry standards for top performance and long life.
Cat ToughGuard™ Hoses, for example, feature a polyethylene cover that has surpassed 2 million cycles of abrasion testing without failure!
A: Permanent and Reusable coupling options are offered for a wide variety of hose types.
B: Cat Hose and Couplings are tested as a system and above industry requirements to ensure that the coupling and the hose are a perfect fit.
C: Cat Hose has embedded lay line information and is designed to achieve half of the SAE bend radius.
D: The Hose Assembly Part Number is provided on a tag to allow for quicker ordering and assembly turnaround time. Provide this part number to your Caterpillar Dealer when you are ready to replace your hose assembly.
E: Certified Crimp and Certified Clean stickers are added to confirm that hose assembly is crimped to specifications and has been cleaned properly with foam projectiles.
F: Cat Hose Assemblies are capped and/or plugged to prevent contamination from entering prior to installation.
