When it comes to moving media from tanks to pumps, valves, and cylinders, hydraulic hoses have been the standard product of choice for decades. Due to their widespread availability and ease of use, hose assemblies are most engineer's first thought when it comes to system design. The word “custom” is often considered taboo, but let us show you why our custom products can actually save time money, and headaches.
Used widely in hydraulic and pneumatic applications, quick disconnect couplings offer a convenient, fast, and easy way to make connections without the use of tools. Keeping reading to learn more about quick coupling types, how they work, and why we use them.
You’ve no doubt seen them, installed on all your equipment, overflowing your shelves, and haunting your inventory with hundreds of part numbers. Adapters are used in so many applications that it may seem impossible to escape them, but have you ever stopped and wondered why? Why are hydraulic adapters everywhere, and what is the point of these things?
A leaking or faulty hose can have devastating effects, from halted operations, leaked materials, damages and even personnel injuries. Failures of any kind can be very costly in the form of lost production due to unforeseen outages and can overall become an absolute nightmare for a business. Luckily, if you prepare to combat any unforeseen problems you will keep productivity, health & safety and much more to a high standard. By having industrial hose inspection and testing carried out by our Quality Team, you will be much better prepared to avoid those potential dangers to your operations.
Generally speaking, building a hose assembly is a pretty straightforward endeavor. Pick a hose, cut it to length, and slap some ends on that bad boy. Those three easy steps guarantee an assembly ready for a lifetime of field service, right? Keep reading to learn more about the intricacies of producing high-quality assemblies, built to specific requirements.
For those outside the mysterious realm of the hydraulics industry, the terms we pass around are often confusing, contradictory, and downright vague. "Industrial hose" is one of those terms. Sure, it sounds innocent enough at first, until we realize an "industrial hose" can be anything from a residential garden hose, to an FDA approved food-grade conveying device.
