Hydraulic hoses must adhere to specific performance specifications, such as temperature and pressure ratings. Each one is assigned with minimum and maximum operating temperatures that could significantly shorten their working lives if exceeded.
They must also be capable of withstanding pressure spikes caused by fluctuations in system fluid temperature changes, and have end connections which connect directly with system ports.
High Pressure Hydraulic Hoses
High pressure hydraulic hoses offer unparalleled levels of safety and performance, as their durability, resistance to extreme temperatures and pressures makes them perfect for heavy duty applications such as those found in mining or oil industries.
These flexible hoses are typically used to transport mineral and hydraulic oils as well as water-oil emulsions, such as anti-static delivery lines or air or lube lines.
Selecting the ideal hose and coupling are key components to the safe operation of any system. When selecting a hose, take into account its recommended maximum operating pressure as well as whether or not it meets impulse application specifications. Furthermore, ensure it satisfies minimum bend radius requirements; exceeding this will damage and shorten the life span of the hose significantly. When possible route parallel to machine contours to avoid hard-angle bends which restrict flow or decrease its lifespan.
Industrial Hydraulic Hoses
Industrial hydraulic hoses are commonly found in construction, mining, manufacturing and transportation applications. They’re tailored for high-pressure applications which involve frequent flexing and surges while being compatible with petroleum-based hydraulic fluids that support pressure capacities up to the stated working pressure rating.
Industrial hydraulic hoses are constructed from durable materials like augmented rubber and steel-reinforced Teflon to ensure optimal performance, such as extreme temperature extremes or debris that could damage their components. To maximize longevity, industrial hydraulic hoses also come equipped with reinforced braided layers made of braided fiber for increased flexibility and protection from external influences like temperature extremes or contaminants that could compromise its integrity.
Your choice of industrial hydraulic hose will depend on its application and environment. Considerations include tube compound compatibility with fluid, temperature settings, working pressures and impacts from system pressure spikes as they could shorten hose lifespan. Furthermore, choose suitable fittings from among adapters, couplings and connectors available in order to complete your purchase.
Marine Hydraulic Hoses
Hydraulic equipment has many industrial uses, but mariners make use of it differently. For instance, equipment that must operate under extreme temperatures or strange fluids requires special marine hoses and fittings or it could be damaged irreparably or rendered nonfunctional.
Marine hydraulic hoses are specifically tailored to meet the demands of this industry, typically constructed of rubber with either textile braid or high-tensile steel wire reinforcement, and available in various designs to accommodate for various applications.
Marine fire hoses that are commonly needed on boats typically feature brass couplings that are stenciled USCG approved, while washdown hoses used to put out boat fires and clean equipment typically consist of nitrile rubber with steel wire reinforcement; both types can come in various sizes and lengths.
Custom Hydraulic Hoses
Selecting an ideal hose for your equipment can have a dramatic impact on its longevity, usability and performance. Take into account factors like what liquid needs to be transported as well as bending radius requirements or high/low temperature ratings for optimal results.
