Question: Precautions for using hydraulic hoses
1.The layout of the hose should avoid heat sources as much as possible and be far away from the exhaust pipe of the engine. If necessary, protective devices such as sleeves or shields can be used to prevent the hose from being thermally damaged.
2.Where the hose crosses or may come into contact with mechanical surfaces during operation, protective devices such as hose clamps or springs should be used to prevent damage to the outer layer of the hose.
3. When the hose needs to be bent, the bending radius should not be too small and should be greater than 10 times the outer diameter.
4.When installing the hose, it should be avoided to be in a stretched state. Even if there is no relative movement between the two ends of the hose, the hose should be kept relaxed. A stretched hose will expand under pressure, reducing its strength.
5.Do not twist the hose during installation. Slight twisting of the hose may reduce its strength and cause the joint to come loose. When assembling, the joint should be tightened onto the hose, rather than the hose being tightened onto the joint.
6. If the hose is installed in critical components, it is recommended to inspect or replace it regularly.
