Continental Introduces New Heavy-Duty Air Hose for Construction and Mining Markets

The technology company Continental has introduced a new heavy-duty air hose for the construction and mining markets.

Named Super Rock Drill 600 HT, the air hose is specifically designed for applications that require a high working pressure hose in a high temperature environment.  “This is a hand-built hose that is exceptionally applicable to customers and markets that operate in hazardous environs,” said Laszlo Dobo, product manager for Continental’s industry hoses. “The material in the heavy-duty air hose provides an ideal solution on construction sites, mines and quarries.” The hose offers a 600-psi working pressure and complies to ARPM (Association for Rubber Products Manufacturers) guidelines on a 4:1 safety factory.  The EPDM rubber provides good ozone resistance in outside applications.
