Aeroflow introduces ultra-lightweight ‘big bore’ hoses

LinkedIn +

Aeroflow’s ultra-lightweight flexible hose, and billet big-bore fittings have been engineered for extreme racing conditions, where every gram counts and reliability is key. Kryptalon Series hoses feature a Kevlar braid and Teflon liner that has a convoluted outer and a smooth inner bore design, which eradicates boundary layer entrapment and minimises flow disruption.

Available in sizes -4AN through to -20AN and suitable for a large range of applications such as fuels (including E85 & E10), methanol, oils and lubricants, and as part of coolant systems.

The patented one-piece fitting design is said to be ‘easy to assemble’, thanks to an olive that sits on the outside of the braid; the unique design also helps save valuable time during assembly. The hoses are machined from 6061 T6 aluminium and hard anodised in an extremely durable black or titanium finish.

Proven under the rigours of Nitro drag racing, the joints are capable of being disconnected and reconnected time after time without leaks developing. Aeroflow state that the hoses and fittings are ‘perfect for serious racing conditions but equally at home in any application’.
