Suspension hose curbs noise buildup - ContiTech North America

April 26, 2010
Mutex textile-reinforced suspension hose absorbs pressure for a damping effect eliminating the need for acoustic measures.
The volume-increase capacity of Mutex textile-reinforced suspension hose absorbs pressure peaks induced by the oil pump for a damping effect, eliminating the need for acoustic measures such as a muffler.The construction of the hose’s textile reinforcement combines the large volume increase and resistance to operational pressures of more than 200 bar (approximately 2,901psi at sea level that occurs in active suspension systems. Eliminating the muffler and metal, as well as requiring less hose, results in a lightweight design, which reduces fuel consumption and emissions.ContiTech North America, 136 Summit Ave., Montvale, NJ 07645, (800) 654-0974,
