GlobalSpiral Maximum™: A no-skive solution up to 2”

As applications are getting more compact and powerful in Heavy Vehicles and Mobile Equipment as well as in the Energy, Extraction and Exploration segment, demand is growing for larger diameter and higher working pressure hose assemblies. In response to this market requirement, Gates has developed a new coupling, the GlobalSpiral Maximum™ (GSM) coupling.

The GSM coupling has a one-piece design wih a pre-installed ferrule and has a stem that is machined from a single piece of solid steel for greater strength and integrity. This coupling ensures a greater longevity and reliability to hydraulic systems and less downtime on applications up to 2” and 420 bar.

It offers a true leak-free solution, eliminating the risk of fluid power system contamination and coupling blow-offs caused by improper skiving.

At the event of designing GlobalSpiral Maximum™ couplings, Gates has also extended his range with the newly developed 32EFG6K hose. Aligned with Gates philosophy in spiral hose assemblies, also these new combinations withstand 1,000,000 impulse cycles at +121°C with no evidence of stress cracks in the tubing!
