Precautions For Hydraulic Hose Installation
When purchasing hydraulic hoses, you need to pay attention to many aspects, and you also need to pay attention to many elements during installation to avoid problems during installation and damage to the hydraulic hose. The piping system of hydraulic hoses is intricate, and each hose needs to be considered during installation, to avoid damage caused by twisting, forcible stretching and friction. However, due to the unprofessional installation personnel, they often make some mistakes during installation. Next, the editor will introduce the installation notes of hydraulic hoses to you in detail!
1. Length of hydraulic hose
The length of the hydraulic hose is not fixed, it will be changed by external factors. For example, under the pressure impact of the transported material, it will become longer. According to the principle of thermal expansion and contraction, it is afraid to judge, when it is cold, it will contract to a certain extent. Therefore, we must ensure that the hydraulic hose after the installation is completed to maintain a certain degree of slack, not excessively tight, nor excessively affect the appearance.
2. Hydraulic hose bending
The hydraulic hose can be bent to a certain extent, but the bending radius cannot be smaller than the minimum bending radius of the hose. Because if the hose is excessively bent, it will not only cause damage to the tube body of the hose, but also hinder or block the transportation of materials in the tube to a certain extent. In addition, on the outside of the bend, the pressure on the hose wall will increase, which is easy to cause rupture. When large bending is necessary, it is recommended to select some suitable elbow fittings first, so as to reduce the damage to the hose caused by the bending.
3. Protection of hydraulic hoses
The application environment of hydraulic hose is very harsh, including some high temperature, open air, wear and other environments. For example, near the exhaust pipe, the temperature will be very high, and the high temperature will accelerate the aging speed of the hydraulic hose, to a certain extent, reduce the service life of the hydraulic hose. Therefore, hoses working in these environments must be thermally insulated, such as using metal baffles or spiral protective sleeves for thermal insulation. At the same time, it is also necessary to fix the hydraulic hose with a pipe clamp or a pallet to prevent damage to it from friction and collision.
