Are you dealing with a hydraulic or high-pressure hose that needs to be cut and repaired? There are two ways to go about it. The first is to use a patcher, which involves placing a physical part inside the hose and crimping it at both ends. The other option is to use two threaded pieces on either side of the joint and place a coupler in the middle. Field Fit reusable hydraulic hose fittings are designed for this purpose and require only basic hand tools for assembly. Before you start, make sure to turn off the hydraulic system and the compressed air control switch to the neutral position.
This will release system pressure and allow you to safely remove the damaged hose. To identify the thread on a hydraulic hose connection, you can download a mobile phone app from Parker, Ryco or Taipan. It's important to use exactly the same type of hydraulic hose as the one being replaced, as well as the same remote control. Using a press is recommended but not essential; it will help you assemble the hydraulic hose much faster and easier. Once you've removed the damaged hose, make sure to clean out any debris from the fittings and aprons before installing a new one.
To replace or repair a leaking hydraulic hose, you'll need some basic mechanical knowledge, access to simple hand tools, and the ability to safely remove the damaged or leaking hose. In some cases, it may be necessary to remove part of the equipment in order to replace the hydraulic hose. Make sure to mark this part of the system so that you know exactly what type of hydraulic hose needs to be replaced. To avoid this problem in the future, make sure to perform routine maintenance on your hydraulic equipment in a timely manner. If you're looking for an easy way to fix your hydraulic or high-pressure hose, Field Fit reusable hydraulic hose fittings are an ideal solution. With just basic hand tools and some mechanical knowledge, you can quickly and easily replace or repair your leaking hydraulic hose.
Just remember to turn off your system before starting and mark any parts that need to be removed.
