Understanding the many types of hoses, their applications, and how to properly look after them is very important for the best performance and resilience in hose service. We’ll go deeper into the world of hydraulic hoses in this post, from choice and assembly to inspection and maintenance. Let’s get started!
Hydraulic hoses are used in a variety of industries, including construction, agriculture, and the manufacturing sector. They are used as a means of allowing pressurised fluids within hydraulic systems to go from one place to another and are available in a variety of forms, sizes, and materials to suit a variety of purposes. Hydraulic hoses commonly used are:

Hose assembly really helps in preventing leaks and guaranteeing hose integrity. Keep in mind to adhere to the following:
Use compatible fittings: Check that the hose ends (fittings) are compatible with the hose and securely fastened. JIC, NPT, and BSP fittings are good examples of common fittings.
Adhere to suitable assembly procedures: To assemble the hose, use the proper tools and techniques, such as crimping machines for permanent fittings or reusable fittings for field repairs.
Fittings should not be over- or under-tightened: Both can result in failure, leakage, or shortened hose life.

Routine examination and maintenance of your hoses help in detecting any problems and extending their lifespan. Here are some pointers:
Visual inspection: Check for fractures, bulges, nicks, and fitting concerns on a regular basis. Replace any broken hoses as soon as possible.
Pressure testing: These should be performed to guarantee that the hose can handle the system’s operational pressure without leaks or malfunctions.
Maintenance schedule: Create a pre-planned maintenance schedule based on the manufacturer’s recommendations and the specific demands of your system.

Safety should be the main thing on one’s mind in any industrial setting and it’s important to maintain a safe working environment by doing the following:
Personal protection equipment (PPE) must be worn: Protect yourself from injuries by wearing gloves, safety glasses, and other required equipment.
Recognising potential hazards: Pay close attention to pressurised fluids, pinch points, and other potential hazards in hydraulic systems.
Keeping your desk clean and organised: To avoid accidents, keep the work environment clear of clutter and spillage.
The SSIP handbook from Completely Hydraulic provides more information on safety precautions.
To guarantee a safe and successful operation, people working with hydraulic hoses must get proper training and, if necessary a certification. Topics covered in training should include:
Investing in continuous education and training can help prevent accidents and downtime, ensuring the smooth operation of your hydraulic systems.
Discard used hydraulic hoses in accordance with local laws and environmental requirements. Some hoses may be recyclable, while others, due to the materials used in their manufacturing, need special disposal methods. Proper disposal helps to protect the environment and encourages sustainability.
