As we continue our series on the replacement and selection of the proper hose for your system, let’s recap the two previous steps. First was the importance of determining the hose I.D. size, which has a direct correlation to the flow velocity and efficiency of your system. We then discussed the effects of both ambient and media temperatures on the service life of a hose and what to consider to maximize that life. While both are essential, for long term dependability and performance of your hose and hydraulic system, you'll want to identify and address unique factors specific to your application.
We touched a little on application in the temperature blog post, especially when looking at the operating environment of your machinery or equipment. As you know, hydraulic hose is used in hundreds, if not thousands, of applications and with so much to consider for each application from environmental conditions, routing requirements and the type of equipment, what is most important to identify?
Let's focus on a few key elements to consider:
