Do not let your hose fittings cost you downtime.
Hydraulic hose repair can slow down your production processes. Depending on what business you are in, hydraulic hoses are the lifeblood of your operation. The hydraulic equipment used to support your production processes also support your workforce, helping to maintain their productivity. When hydraulic hose repairs are necessary, the resulting downtime can be an expensive proposition.
Hydraulic Hose – High-pressure regulating system
A Hydraulic hose assembly is an amazing piece of equipment. It continuously circulates high-pressure hydraulic fluid through the system waiting for the operator’s input. With the help of controls, the operator can use the hydraulic fluid’s pressure to articulate various parts of the machinery to accomplish difficult tasks easily. From moving rocks and trees, to moving huge amounts of earth, to crushing metal and demolishing buildings, hydraulic equipment can help with even the most demanding of tasks.
Hydraulic hoses are designed to withstand high pressure to be able to flex and move with the equipment. This requires robust hoses that can carry the high pressure even at extreme angles. Moreover, the hydraulic hose fittings remain rigid and stationary and maintain sheer forces on the hose during movement of the equipment. Most hydraulic hose leaks occur at the joint end. Hydraulic hoses can be repaired easily, but for that, you have to separate the hose from the equipment, stopping the work in progress.
To help minimize downtime, make sure you regularly inspect your equipment for small leaks. Most hydraulic leaks are not sudden ruptures but small leaks that develop and continue to grow into large leaks. Daily leak inspections take just a few minutes and can save you time and money in the long run. Downtime can also cost you your most valuable assets; your customers.
