AE246-12 meets the performance requirements of AS13339 but not the O.K. dimension of AS1339 (The O.D. is dimensionally smaller)

     Inner Tube: PTFE inner tube
     Reinforcement & Outer Cover: 
     AE246 has 2 braids of Type 300 Series stainless steel woven wire braid which acts as it's reinforcement and cover. Braid reinforcement is Eaton Aeroquip's advanced technology Hi-Pac(r) brad reinforcement which offers:

  • Up to 50% lighter in weight
  • Considerably smaller envelope size
  • 50% tighter bend radius
  • Improved flexing characteristics
  • Proven high performance
  • Proven 'Super-C' crimped fittings

Operating Temperatures:
     -67 F to +400 F
     -55 C to +204C

Application in High Pressure and High-Temperature Service:

Eaton's PTFE hose is unaffected by fuels, lube oils, coolants or solvents commonly used in aircraft applications. Superior vibration resistance, low volumetric expansion, and high-temperature resistance make it ideal for hydraulic systems. 


The product line of AE246 hose has a PTFE tube, which is designed to eliminate electrostatically induced hose failures. The tube is capable of conducting a direct current equal to or greater than 6 micro-amps in sizes -4, -6, -8 ; 12 microamps in -10 and size and up, with a potential of 1,000 volts.

AE246 hose is recommended for normal 3000 psi hydraulic systems with impulse peaks up to 4500 psi.
