HS-E - Rigid and Flexible Hose Connections

Hose design and construction is a very technical and precise science. Proper selection and sizing of hoses and allied fittings is critical to ensuring the efficiency of a hydraulic system. Good installation and routing practices not only enhance system performance and efficiency but also provide sufficient safeguards under conditions of extreme pressure and temperature. Proper material selection is vital to ensuring long service life of the hose and also goes a long way in minimizing the possibility of premature hose failures. It is also important to strictly adhere to safety considerations, while deciding on the type of hose to be used in a particular application. Hose condition in general can be effectively monitored through the implementation of timely maintenance practices. In the event that any failure symptoms are identified, remedial measures must be undertaken well in time, if catastrophic failures are to be prevented.
