What is nonconductive hose?
Engineers and technicians specifying hoses for hydraulic circuits routinely consider factors like pressure ratings and flow capacity. But in some instances, electrical shock is a potential risk to equipment and operators, and that demands hydraulic hoses that ensure safety when machines operate near high-voltage sources like power lines. Thus, nonconductive hydraulic hoses are recommended for The post What is nonconductive hose? appeared first on Hose Assembly Tips.
What is thermoplastic hydraulic hose?
Thermoplastic hoses are common in both mobile and industrial equipment, and they are widely used in medium-to-high pressure hydraulic applications. Related products are often specified for handling compressed air and other gases, transporting chemicals, and in water-cleaning and paint-spray operations Like its rubber counterpart, thermoplastic hydraulic hose typically has an inner tube, one or more layers of reinforcement, and a protective cover. Where they differ, as the name implies, is in the materials of construction The specific polymers and type of design depend on numerous factors like pressure capability, compatibility with the fluids to be handled, temperature operating range, abrasion resistance, and the ability to withstand attack from chemicals, solvents, cleaning fluids, saltwater, ozone and UV…
What Do the Markings on Underground Utilities Mean?

How do you measure threads on a hydraulic fitting?
Before you select a hydraulic fitting, you must first determine if its threads will match the hose you have selected. Measuring and identifying the fittings is easily done but you must have the correct tools. These tools include ID/OD calipers and thread pitch gauges. Using the thread pitch gauge, as seen in Figure 1, simply The post How do you measure threads on a hydraulic fitting? appeared first on Hose Assembly Tips.
