Protect Assemblies from Damage
- Jan 24, 2018 -
Hydraulic hose manufacturers estimate that 80% of hose failures are attributable to external physical damage through pulling, kinking, crushing or abrasion of the hose. Abrasion caused by hoses rubbing against each other or surrounding surfaces is the most common type of damage.
To prevent external damage, ensure all clamps are kept secure, pay careful attention to routing whenever a replacement hose is installed and if necessary, use hoses with abrasion resistant cover and/or apply polyethylene spiral wrap to protect hydraulic hoses from abrasion.
