  • Hose Assemblies & Fittings

  • A hydraulic hose conveys hydraulic fluid to or between hydraulic components. Components include valves, tools, and actuators. Needless to say, hydraulic hoses are essential parts of any hydraulic system. The hoses are flexible enough to bend around corners and fit in tight spaces and they can also stretch over long distances.

    Some of the most common reasons that hoses fail prematurely include:

    • Improper routing that causes abrasions
    • Operating pressure higher than the hose is capable of handling
    • Pressure surges that exceed relief valve settings
    • High operating temperatures that degrade the rubber
    • Extremely high or low temperatures in the surrounding area
    • Exposure to mildew, chemicals, oil, and cleaning solvents
    • Improper fittings at either end
  • There are thousands of reasons a hydraulic hose can fail, but often, the most common failures could have been avoided with proper precautions.
