When it comes to extreme temperature, chemical, and abrasion resistance, Gates hydraulic hoses are designed to deliver. The Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) material is inert to most commercial chemicals, has a low operating friction coefficient, and is impenetrable by both hot and cold moisture, giving these hydraulic hose systems their non-contaminating and non-aging characteristics.
Yes, you probably already understand hydraulic steering, but I think I may look at hydraulic steering a tad different than most do. Since my approx 36 years experience with hydraulic steering is generally on vessels under 90 ft in length (ZERO Mega Yachts), let's look at my input as being applicable to boats in that size (& price) range.
