Hydraulic hose has a finite service life that can be reduced by manyvariable factors, including pressure cycles and pulsations, temperatureextremes and the hose’s minimum bend radius. System designers and techniciansshould be aware of their effects on hose life expectancy.
When selecting hose components, it’s beneficial to thinkof the entire system. Assemblies comprised of components from a singlemanufacturer prevent downtime, provide clear accountability for failure andminimize safety hazards. Download the white paper.
Choose the right OE hydraulic hose and coupling system for your application. Size, pressure capabilities, material, temperature and more factor into hose selection. Plus, opting for components from one manufacturer is an important step in preventing downtime and injury
