High-performance railway hose meets R22/R23 test requirements for hazard levels 3 and 3
The challenge facing the rail industry is to make rail travel as reliable, efficient, safe and comfortable as possible. Power is fundamental to keeping rail networks moving–whether managing power in a centralized depot, in the rolling stock or in helping ensure sufficient power reaches remote stations.
Driven by regulations and increased globalization, train builders and railway operators must find ways to reduce downtime, increase productivity and enhance safety and security to drive profitability and make the industry more sustainable.

Upgrade to a railway hose that meets inside and outside requirements
EN 45545-2 is the single standard for hose assembly fire behavior (toxicity, smoke density and oxygen-depletion), now adopted by all EU nations. Over the next few years EN45545-2 will replace the country-by-country standards formerly in place.
The Eaton Railway Hose series of hoses conforms to the EN45545-2 standard and is now available for use on a variety of railway uses. In fact, the Railway series of hoses also meet up to R22/HL3 and R23/HL3 requirements for our 1SN, 2SN. The Railway series of hoses are available with R22/HL2 and R23/HL3 in 1SC, 2SC and 2TE models. Market availability for the following railway hoses will follow shortly: the 3TE 2SC with -20/-24/-32 as options.
Further hose types are tested to cover additional applications with R22/HL1 and R23/HL2.
