Gates grade 316 stainless steel hydraulic couplings offer maximum protection and resistance to corrosion in severe operating conditions. The couplings are recommended for marine applications to resist salt spray, agricultural applications to withstand caustic chemical sprays, and food and beverage plants to handle frequent washdowns. Molybdenum-chromium-nickel construction provides resistance to salt corrosion. The couplings are available for Gates wire-braid hoses with up to 6,000 psi working pressure. They are rated at two times the SAE impulse cycle specification.
