Nylon Formed Fuel Lines For The Win

February 7, 2017


Heavy duty construction vehicles are built to withstand extreme applications, harsh conditions and extended operatings times. And they use greater fuel quantities. Which often begs the question: How can I increase performance without sacrificing fuel efficiency?

The answer: Maximize availabe space and route efficient lines to extend the life of the fuel systems. Sounds easy enough, but is this solution practical? Let's take a closer look.

Weight Reduction

Steel ines have been the industry standard for fuel systems and applications for decades. But steel lines are heavy, and times are changing. In fact, nylon is proving its value by replacing heavier metal components. 

Besides thermal durability, the mechanical properties of polyamide (PA) fuel lines and components are distiguished by extraordinary toughness. At VOSS, they're also formed through a proprietary process, so even the sharpest bend still allows for a higher throughput than traditional metal form-bent lines.

Flexibility and Savings

Heavy duty construction vehicles brim with power, but rigid steel lines can show signs of fatigue from hours of vibrations and engine dynamics. This can cause leaks in fuel lines – and your pocketbook.

Constantly replacing fuel lines can be costly, but switching to flexible nylon tubes has solved this very issue. It prevents corrosion from caustic materials like road deicers or fertilizers, and it maintains the quality of bio-diesels that have adverse reactions to brass or steel.

A Custom Solution

Custom solutions can meet your needs – and they can be affordable. VOSS develops and manufactures custom solutions, from the individual line to the complete system. Whether individually pre-formed or bundled, all combinations can be made to your dimensional requirements.

And adding complementing VOSS quick connect system 246NX will improve pressure and temperature capabilities. Even more so than traditional SAE connections. Our quick connect system 246 also has a lower profile, making it ideal for confined spaces.

We are committed to reducing our customers' costs through value-added engineering, budling for single part numbers and overall simplification. You will notice the savings in lower fuel consumption and few maintainence appointments.
