Kongsberg Automotives Smoothbore Metric Range is designed to accept standard hydraulic tailed fittings. The ID of the hoses are made slightly larger than the Imperial Range to help reduce the insertion force required to make assemblies. The Metric hose range helps Hydraulic rubber users reduce their inventory by only needing to stock one fitting to suit all hoses.
Used globally in the Industrial, Chemical, Pharmaceutical, Automotive and Food industries when lesser hoses can’t cope with the temperature, pressure, cleanliness or flex fatigue.
