Access our “Selecting the Right Components for Harsh Environments” white paper and discover cutting-edge solutions and product recommendations for increased ROI on your hydraulic hose assemblies and belt drive systems within extreme operating environments, such as oilfield, mining, marine, aggregate, and more.
“Assortment of Hoses, Couplings, Industry Standards Requires a Hydraulic Systems Approach”
Access our white paper, “Assortment of Hoses, Couplings, Industry Standards Requires a Hydraulic Systems Approach,” to understand the importance of matching OE hoses and couplings from the same manufacturer based on SAE recommendations.
Learn how to choose the right hydraulic hose assembly equipment that can actually withstand the high pressure and temperatures associated with compact mobile applications. Discover product solutions that will keep your equipment up and running, reducing maintenance and downtime all while increasing your ROI.
“Hydraulic Maintenance & Safety” Pocket Guide
Understand the importance of preventive maintenance and safety procedures for maintaining long-lasting hydraulic assemblies with our Hydraulic Maintenance & Safety Pocket Guide. If not properly maintained, these assemblies can cause premature hose failure and blowouts, resulting in equipment downtime, possible equipment damage, personal injury and even death.
“The Gates Safety Guide: An Inspection and Preventive Maintenance Program for Industrial Hose”
Read how to select the proper hose and materials to increase hose life, improve performance, ensure safety, and save you money. Even one unexpected hose failure can damage equipment, stop production, and even cause injury or death.
Access our interactive hose products catalog to quickly access Gates hose, couplings, and adapters. Search for and determine the correct product number in three easy ways—by product attributes, technical attributes and parameters, or by product images.
So many industrial hoses, so many applications. Whether you’re transferring steam, petroleum, corrosive chemicals, or edible products, you want to make sure you select the best hose for the job.
If you’re looking for high-performance hydraulic hose assembly solutions that excel in the harshest environments like oil & gas, mining, or agriculture, look no further.
It only takes one hose-related incident on an oil drilling rig to shut down your entire operation. In the Oil & Gas industry that can mean millions of dollars in lost production, not to mention damage to equipment and possible injury to one of your employees.
If you work in a harsh environment like oil drilling, you know how demanding the elements can be on your hose assemblies. That’s why you’ll want to watch this video on Gates Black Gold® Oilfield Service 400D with UltraBrasion™—the industry’s most abrasion- and weather-resistant hose.
