What is a full hydraulic hose assembly
- Jan 17, 2018 -
There are 3 Major Elements of Hydraulic Hose Assembly
1. Tube: The tube is the interior portion of the hose. Its job is is to get the media from one end of the hose to the other, and also protect the outside from the media or fluid being conveyed through the tube.
2. Reinforcement: The reinforcement is the strength of the hose and comes in a variety of types, including braided, spiral and helical.
3. Cover: The cover is designed to protect the reinforcement and tube from the outside environment.
Fittings are usually made of metal, such as carbon steel, stainless steel and brass. Within these fittings there are two major components. Fitting components are comprised of the following:
Socket: This is the portion of the fitting that goes over the outer cover.
Stem: The stem is the portion of the fitting that goes directly into the I.D. of the inner tube of the hose. It extends out of the hose and into the connecting end. The connecting end of the fitting is the portion of the fitting that allows the hose to connect to other components as needed.
