PRODUCT SHOWCASE: Kurt Hydraulics Introduces 6W Couplings With High-Pressure Hoses For The Wind Energy Industry


Kurt Hydraulics’ line of 6W Couplings combined with high pressure braided hose are ideally suited for applications that require high pressure capabilities and temperature ranges from -40°F to 250°F for the wind industry. The couplings are a one-piece, bite-the-wire crimp coupling with non-skive design to eliminate cover skiving before assembly to the hose.

The Kurt 6W Couplings make assembly simple, quick and enhance the hydraulic hose assembly to maintain more integrity which is crucial in many applications. The couplings eliminate leaks and in-field failures caused by shock and vibration and are ideally suited in wind energy hydraulic systems.

Kurt 6W Couplings are available in 85 different types and popular sizes of 1¼”, 1½, 2” and are designed to work with SAE R13 and 4SH hydraulic hose—also available from Kurt. The 6W couplings can withstand ultra high pressure of up to 6000 psi, and are suited for operations ranging in temperatures from -40° F to 250°F.

All Kurt couplings meet or exceed SAE specifications and are quality manufactured in accordance with ISO 9002/QS 9000 quality processes and systems. They are finished with RoHS compliant trivalent Chromum-6 Free process, a highly durable finish which exceeds the industry SAE standard by 4X hours of salt spray.
