Hydraulic hoses are an integral part of any hydraulic system, and their proper maintenance is essential for ensuring the system's efficiency and reliability. To prevent hydraulic hose failure, it is important to adhere to the manufacturer's recommendations regarding the life cycle of the components, change the oil and filters regularly, and keep the hydraulic system clean by taking regular oil samples for analysis. The temperature of the medium carried by the hydraulic hose should not exceed the temperature specified by the manufacturer, usually -40 Â-+ 120 Â. It is also important to avoid stacking at a height that is too high, which usually does not exceed 1.5 meters, and to not store heavy objects on hydraulic hoses.
Corrosion is one of the most common causes of hydraulic hose damage, so it is important to take measures to prevent it. TOPA will provide detailed technical parameters when you purchase the hose to ensure that you can buy the right one for your needs. Hydraulic hose failures can be costly in terms of time and money, as they can lead to unplanned equipment downtime and employees being sent home or reassigned to less productive tasks. To maximize hydraulic hose performance and extend its life, make sure they are properly placed, supported and physically protected.
If necessary, replace the hose assemblies and change the route, length, or accessories to route the hose within the published minimum bend radius. It is also important to avoid bending the hose below its recommended minimum meander radius as this can reduce its life expectancy by up to 90%. Finally, make sure that hydraulic hoses are classified and shipped in rolls to prevent excessive bending of the hose and avoid heavy loads on it. By following these simple steps, you can ensure that your hydraulic hoses are functioning properly and have a longer life span. Regular maintenance and inspection of your hydraulic hoses will help you avoid costly repairs or replacements in the future.
Additionally, if you purchase your hoses from TOPA, you can rest assured that you are getting quality products that will last for years.
