Hydraulic hose is an important part of hydraulic system. The quality of hydraulic hose not only influence the normal use of hydraulic system, but also influence the working efficiency and even the human security. So it’s really matter to choose high quality hydraulic hoses.
OrientFlex is a professional and powerful manufacturer of all kinds of hoses. Our hydraulic hose is famous in the world for it’s good quality. Let’s see how OrientFlex produce high quality hydraulic hose.
First of all, the “Inhuman and brutal” tests
Before produce, there will be several “Inhuman and brutal” tests. Actually, ASE and ISO standard have made clear definition to the test methods and evaluate standards. The test including the following aspects.
Salt mist test
Salt mist test is a kind of accelerate tests. It firstly atomize saline with certain concentration. Then spray it into a closed thermostat. Looking the changes of hydraulic hose fitting after a period to see the corrosion resistance.
The evaluation standard is to compare the time that oxide appear on the fitting with the designed objective. If the oxide appears later than the designed time, it means it’s a high quality hose. Of course, if choose stainless steel fitting, you don’t have to worry about the corrosion.
Burst test is a kind of destructive tests and normally focus on the hose assembly pressed within 30 days. Pressure with a constant speed to 4 times working pressure to make sure the min burst pressure. Be aware that you should pressure constantly and don’t pressure sharply. It will cause the hose burst within the burst pressure and can’t get the experimental effect.
If there is leakage, bulge, burst or fitting falling within the min burst pressure, the hose is unqualified.
Today we learned the salt mist and burst test of hydraulic hose. Follow us and see the other tests next.
