What You Need to Know When Selecting a Hydraulic Hose
Hydraulic hoses are an essential part of any hydraulic system, providing basic means for transporting fluid from one hydraulic component to the next. Here is what you should consider when choosing the proper hydraulic hose.
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…

How do you protect hydraulic hose?
Hydraulic hose with spring guard Hydraulic hose assemblies rarely operate in controlled, protected environments. Rather, rough and demanding conditions are the norm. Thus, hose is often exposed to flying debris in mobile equipment and the likes of weld spatter and hot metal chips—or even the errant lift truck—in industrial settings Add to that, hoses subjected to continuous movement and machine vibration can rub against each other and adjacent equipment. That can erode hose covers, expose the reinforcement to dirt and moisture, and lead to quick failure. Thus, it’s essential to protect hydraulic hose against abrasion, physical impact, crushing loads and high temperatures to ensure long, reliable operation. Here are some common ways to safeguard hose. Shielding.…
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.
