Hydraulic hose is one of the most important materials among the whole system. The quality of it concerns the whole work. While once the hose fail, it not only cause the work has to stop, but also wastes much time to repair or replace. Then what cause such hose fail? There are several common causes of hydraulic hose failure.
When a hose rubs against a rough surface, it can cause wear damage to the outer layer of the hose. Over time, this can weaken the hose and cause it to fail.
When a hose bends too much or too tightly, it can cause damage to the inner layers of the hose. This can also weaken the hose and cause it to fail.
If a hose exposes to high temp, it can cause the rubber to degrade and become brittle. This can cause the hose to crack. Then, it may fail earlier.
Certain chemical can damage the rubber in the hose. Then cause it to become brittle and fail.
If dirt or other materials get inside a hose, it can cause damage to the inner layers of the hose. Then lead to failure.
Even if a hydraulic hose is not exposed to any of the above factors, it will eventually degrade over time due to age and use. This can cause the hose to fail.
To avoid hydraulic hose failure, it’s important to inspect the hose regularly for signs of damage or wear. Then replace the hose that shows signs of damage or are near to the end of their lifespan. It’s also important to use the correct type of hose for the specific app. Besides, follow the suggest to install and restore. With such efforts, your hose can serve for a longer time.
