New Meyle radiator hose for Scania trucks

Meyle has extended its range of high-quality commercial vehicle spare parts. The latest portfolio addition is areinforced radiator hose for the Scania P, G, R T and 4 series models.

The material has been optimised in various ways to improve durability over standard radiator hose designs, Meyle says.

Meyle draws on the stringent quality standards and years of experience in manufacturing passenger car spares to engineer high-performance replacement parts for commercial vehicles too. When designing new products, their engineers’ prime objective is to deliver superior service life. Truck parts are exposed to particular stress, which is why Meyle has developed a reinforced radiator hose to fit the Scania P, G. R. T and 4 series models.  A defective radiator hose can cause consequential damage, resulting in extended vehicle down-time.

The new hose wall is 20 per cent thicker than that of the original design. Additionally, the hose developed by the Hamburg manufacturer’s engineers uses a high-quality fabric made from kevlar, a material so strong, it is employed on ballistic vests.  Thanks to the material’s excellent temperature resistance the Meyle radiator hose remains dimensionally stable and provides superior load-carrying capabilities.

And there are more benefits in store: Thanks to its smooth surface the hose is repellent to dust, oil and rust. Meyle also ensures high quality for the hose coupling by using a genuine Norma quick connector, which ensures excellent sealing along with quick and safe mounting.
