High pressure hose assembly is a structure with high pressure hose and metal connector. It’s a common auxiliary device in hydraulic system. While the function is to connect all the hydraulic elements in hydraulic system. These elements include hose, sealing, flange and connector.
How to choose high pressure hose assembly
There are many factors affect the usage of hydraulic hose. Thus you should choose the hose based on the working conditions. Because only this can guarantee the reliability and economy. Here OrientFlex offers you some tips to choose a proper hydraulic hose assembly.
First is the size
Generally speaking, the inner diameter should be proper. If the size is too small, it will cause the medium flow faster. Then cause the system over heat. Besides, it will reduce the system efficiency. In addition, you should focus on the outer diameter if the hose cross some substances.
Impact pressure and fatigue life
The choice of hydraulic hose is depend on the max work pressure of the system. Because the pressure is dynamic, there may be impact pressure sometimes. While the peak impact pressure is much higher than the max pressure. But you don’t have to worry about this. Because there is overflow valve in the system. Thus the impact pressure will not affect the fatigue life.
Once the real temperature beyond the max, the lifespan of hydraulic hose will reduce. Besides, the pressure resistance will reduce as well. For such occasion, OrientFlex suggests you protect sleeve to protect your hose. Besides prevent your hose from high temperature, hose sleeve can also help avoid the abrasion.
If use special hydraulic medium, you have to make sure the hose and connector are compatible with it.
