MUTEX textile-reinforced suspension hose curbs noise buildup

ContiTech has developed the textile-reinforced suspension hose MUTEX. Its volume increase capacity is great enough to absorb pressure peaks.

With the MUTEX textile-reinforced suspension hose, ContiTech Fluid Technology has developed a hose with a volume increase capacity great enough to absorb the pressure peaks induced by the oil pump – and thus have a damping effect. It renders superfluous the use of additional acoustic measures like a muffler.

ContiTech has succeeded in combining a relatively large volume increase and a resistance to working pressures exceeding 200 bar that occur in active suspension systems. The special construction of the textile reinforcement made this possible. What is more, textile braiding is much more effective than steel braiding in reducing hose transmission of structure-borne noise.

Elimination of the muffler also greatly reduces production costs for the hose line linking the oil pump and the manifold block. Also effective in lowering costs is a shorter hose length than in the previous system. No muffler, no metal, less hose – all of this results in a much lighter component. This, in turn, acts to reduce fuel consumption and emissions. And so MUTEX makes a hefty contribution to environmental protection and to mobility that is both performance-minded and sustainable.
