Eaton's Aeroquip Hose and Fitting Assembly Product Warning
Flexible hose lines offer many advantages over rigid tubing including routing ease, vibration absorption, sound deafening and the ability to accommodate movement of connected components. However, hose lines require caution in use not only to provide long service, but also to guard against potentially dangerous failure.
The user should carefully observe the precautions listed in this catalog, including the recommendations on the selection of hose and fittings on the relevant pages, and the pages on fluid compatibility. In addition, care should be taken not to exceed the minimum bend radius listed for each hose size and type in the hose section.
Maximum operating pressure should not exceed pressures listed in the hose data. Instructions for assembling fittings to different hose should be followed carefully to ensure the performance of the completed assembly.
Eaton fitting tolerances are engineered to match Eaton’s Aeroquip hose tolerances. The use of Eaton fittings on hose supplied by other manufacturers and/or the use of Eaton’s Aeroquip hose with fittings supplied by other manufactures may result in the production of unreliable and unsafe hose assemblies and is neither recommended nor authorized by Eaton Corporation or any of its affiliates or subsidiaries.
Application considerations must be observed in selecting appropriate components for the application of these products contained herein. The failure to follow the recommendations set forth in this catalog may result in an unstable application which may result in serious personal injury or property damage.
EATON CORPORATION OR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES OR SUBSIDIARIES SHALL NOT BE SUBJECT TO AND DISCLAIMS ANY OBLIGATIONS OR LIABILITIES (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ALL CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTIAL AND CONTINGENT DAMAGES) ARISING FROM TORT CLAIMS (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION NEGLIGENCE AND STRICT LIABILITY) OR OTHER THE- ORIES OF LAW WITH RESPECT TO ANY HOSE ASSEMBLIES NOT PRO-DUCED FROM GENUINE AEROQUIP HOSE FITTINGS, HOSE AND AERO- QUIP APPROVED EQUIP MENT, AND IN CONFOR MANCE WITH EATON’S AEROQUIP PROCESS AND PRODUCT INSTRUCTIONS FOR EACH SPECIFIC HOSE ASSEMBLY.
Failure to follow these processes and product instructions and limitations could lead to premature hose assembly failures resulting in property damage, serious injury or death.
If the user follows the recommendations on hose line routing and installation as provide herein, improved safety and longer service life of any hose installation will result.

Eaton manufactures the terminal ends of our hose fittings to the appropriate requirements established by the SAE. Therefore, the performance ratings of these hose fittings meet the SAE requirements. It is possible to order a hose assembly with a fitting terminal end that has a performance rating lower than the hose rating. When ordering hose assemblies, please keep the connecting end performance rating in mind since this may affect overall hose assembly performance.
Hose assembly components (hose and fittings) are easily assembled in the field. However, factory assembled reusable and crimped hose assemblies are available. For complete information, contact Eaton.
