Hydraulic hoses must be durable and long-lasting enough to handle the needs of the particular function. Hydraulic hoses, unlike many other industrial hoses, need substantial reinforcement to endure the significant pressures that are necessary to perform their job. Reinforcing support can come in many forms depending on the levels of pressure, materials, and other factors that the hose will be required to withstand.
Consider STAMPED When Selecting Hydraulic Hoses
When determining which hydraulic hoses and fittings will be right for your situation, TCH Industries of Twinsburg, Ohio, suggests considering the acronym “STAMPED.” Seven questions cued by each letter will help identify which hydraulic hose is right for your situation. These are:
Dealing with High Pressure
Hydraulic hoses, more than any other, are expected to withstand higher-than-normal pressure while in full operation. As a result, added reinforcement becomes mandatory.
The type and degree of reinforcement are calculated by the working pressure of the hydraulic system. As the pressure increases, the PSI rating of the hose must increase as well.
Most hydraulic hose reinforcement material may be one of three types, although combinations of these are often used to bolster the pressure capacity. These materials are:
