Aeroquip by Danfoss EC881 Dynamax Hose

Aug. 27, 2022
The Danfoss EC881 hose offers a good combination of pressure performance, flexibility, and lifetime among two-wire braided hoses.

As a two-wire braided hose, the Aeroquip by Danfoss EC881 Dynamax hose offers higher reliability and extended service life, reducing maintenance time, costs, and waste. With its high-pressure capabilities, the EC881 hose can replace heavy, rigid four-wire spiral hoses in certain applications. Braided hoses are much more flexible than spiral hoses, enabling OEMs to reroute and reduce hose assembly lengths. Braided hose are also lighter in weight, reducing the overall weight of the machine and improving fuel efficiency.


The EC881 hose outperforms standard EN 857 type 2SC hose specifications with a 35% higher pressure rating, 26% higher operating temperature, eight times more abrasion resistance, 67% greater flexibility (? SAE bend radius), and five times more impulse life (1 million qualified impulse cycles).


The hose is available in 0.25 to 1.5 in. inner diameter. The hose is ideal for a variety of applications, including compact construction equipment, agricultural equipment, forestry equipment, mining, oil and gas, refuse trucks, aerial lifts, and railway.
