The next generation of A/C hose is here.

Aeroquip has introduced its next generation black A/C hose with EZ Clip fitting. The hose provides superior performance and versatility for the most demanding applications. The SAE J2064 Type E veneer hose features a sleek design with near-zero permeation, a tighter bend radius and the widest temperature range in its class.

Perhaps most notably, the hose pairs seamlessly with Eaton’s EZ Clip air conditioning hose and repair assembly system. This simple assembly system makes building any hose and fitting combination effortless, in the field or in the shop.

EZ Clip breaks assembly down to 3 simple steps:

1. SNAP on the cage

2. SLIDE the clips into place on the fitting

3. CLOSE the clips using FT1357 pliers

The EZ Clip system eliminates guess work and needs no power supply, reducing your installation time by 50%, and is backed by a 3-year warranty.

This new A/C hose is qualified with several refrigerants and refrigerant oils, including the emission-reducing R1234yf. Additional features include:

  • Matte black A/C hose features a slick clean design, with an exceptional attention to detail.
  • Widest temperature range: -40ºC to +140ºC for performance in the most extreme conditions
  • Near-zero permeation: Patented tube technology virtually eliminates gas loss
  • Superior flexibility and kink resistance: The tightest bend radius in its class – Durable construction to last longer: UV resistant cover with 4-layer hose construction resists wear and collapse
  • Multiple fitting options: Factory or field crimped with the EZ Clip fitting system
