Hydraulic Hoses with Braided Fiber Cover: SAE 100R5

r5 steel wire reinforced hose


SAE 100R5 fabric covered hydraulic hose is a single wire braid and textile covered hydraulic hose widely used in medium pressure applications including conveying petroleum-based hydraulic oil, air and water with specified pressure to air brakes, power steering, turbo oil lines and tilt cab cylinders. Oil resistant tube, single wire braid reinforcement and fiber braided cover contributes high performance. Fabric braids should be resistant to oils and mildew.


Tube: oil resistant synthetic rubber, making the hose have excellent performance in delivering oils.

Reinforcement: one layer of single braided steel wire, making the hose suitable for medium pressure applications.

Cover: braided fiber, making the hose resistant to mildew and oil.

Pressure Rating:

SAE 100R5 hoses are designed for medium pressure applications with working pressures up to 3,000 psi (pounds per square inch). The actual pressure rating may vary depending on the hose size and manufacturer.

Temperature Range:

These hoses are suitable for use in a temperature range from -40°C to +100°C (-40°F to +212°F). However, it’s always important to refer to the specific manufacturer’s recommendations for the precise temperature limits of a particular hose.


SAE 100R5 hoses are compatible with commonly used hydraulic fluids such as petroleum-based oils, water-glycol mixtures, synthetic hydraulic fluids, and more. It is crucial to verify compatibility with specific fluids and applications.


SAE 100R5 hoses are widely used in the automotive industry for applications such as power steering, power brake, and air conditioning systems. They are also used in other industrial applications that require medium pressure hydraulic lines.

Power Steering Systems: SAE 100R5 hoses are employed in power steering systems of automobiles. These hoses transport hydraulic fluid under medium pressure to assist in the steering mechanism, allowing the driver to maneuver the vehicle more easily.

Power Brake Systems: SAE 100R5 hoses are utilized in power brake systems to transmit hydraulic pressure from the brake pedal to the brake calipers or wheel cylinders. They play a crucial role in providing hydraulic assistance for efficient braking.

Air Conditioning Systems: SAE 100R5 hoses find applications in automotive air conditioning systems. They transport refrigerant, such as R134a, between various components of the air conditioning system, including the compressor, condenser, evaporator, and expansion valve.

Transmission Oil Cooler Lines: SAE 100R5 hoses are used in transmission oil cooler lines, which assist in cooling the transmission fluid in vehicles. These hoses carry the transmission fluid to and from the transmission cooler, helping maintain optimal operating temperatures.

Engine Oil Circulation: SAE 100R5 hoses are sometimes employed in engine oil circulation systems. They transport engine oil to various engine components, such as the oil cooler, oil filter, and lubrication points, ensuring proper lubrication and cooling.

Turbocharger Oil Lines: In turbocharged engines, SAE 100R5 hoses can be utilized for oil supply and return lines for the turbocharger. These hoses transport oil to the turbocharger for lubrication and cooling and return it to the engine’s oil system.

Other Industrial Applications: SAE 100R5 hoses may also find use in various industrial applications where medium pressure hydraulic lines are required. These can include applications in construction machinery, agricultural equipment, and hydraulic systems in general.


When selecting or using SAE 100R5 hoses, it’s important to consider factors such as the required pressure rating, temperature range, compatibility with fluids, and any specific application requirements. Always consult the manufacturer’s documentation or contact a trusted supplier for detailed information about a particular hose and its suitability for your specific needs.
