Avoiding hose failure and the "dirty" hose scenario

When it comes to hydraulic hoses, there are many choices in the marketplace. Sometimes too many. Are you experiencing hose failures? Typical failures result from:

  • Incorrect operating pressure

One of the biggest reason for hose failure occurs when the maximum operating pressure of the hose does not meet the application requirements. In markets such as mobile equipment or oil and gas, hoses need to handle extremely rugged conditions, which means they need to consistently perform under high pressures (and temperatures). Every hose has an ideal working pressure and if this is constantly exceeded, the hose life will be substantially shortened.

  • Temperature extremes

Performance degrades and assemblies fail when the hose operates under excessively high or low operating temperatures. The harsh environment degrades the rubber turning it hard and brittle.

  • Incorrect fittings

Improper fittings also cause significant issues including reduced performance and efficiency due to leakage, as well as equipment downtime due to the fitting blowing right off the hose.

When you consider the range of factors for selecting your hose including size, temperature, application, materials, installation hose ends (fittings and couplings), it is easy to get overwhelmed by the selection process.

Simplifying hose selection and staying tough under pressure

Responding to OEM and MRO requests for an easier way to build their hose assemblies, Parker designed GlobalCore, consisting of six hydraulic hoses and two fittings series. GlobalCore significantly reduces engineering and service complexity. It provides the first comprehensive hose and fitting system that encompasses the most common constant working pressure classes.

With only six hoses, customers can quickly select the ideal hose based on working pressure. Then, they can easily select the fitting with a choice between Parker’s versatile 43 Series or the high pressure 77 Series. And at half the bend radius of conventional hose, GlobalCore makes installation and routing much easier.

Parker’s tested design provides customers worldwide with durability, ease of use, performance and support, simplifying their hose inventory to one product and one supplier.
