What is Hydraulic Hose?

A hydraulic hose is specifically designed to convey hydraulic fluid to or among hydraulic components, valves, actuators, and tools. It is typically flexible, often reinforced, and usually constructed with several layers of reinforcement since hydraulic systems frequently operate at high or very high pressures. Hydraulic hose is used in a variety of industrial hydraulic systems. Dimensions, performance specifications, construction options, and features are important parameters to consider when searching for hydraulic hose.

Easy Steps For Selecting The Proper Hose

An effective and easy way to remember hose selection criteria is to remember the word…STAMPED.

Size – What is the inside diameter required? Is the outside diameter a factor? How long does it need to be?

Temperature – What is the temperature of the media? What is the surrounding temperature?

Application – Where is this hose being used?

Material to be conveyed – What is the media being transferred? Is the tube of the hose compatible?

Pressure – What is the system pressure? Is there any external force or pressure on the hose?

Ends or couplings – What are the terminal end connections required to mate with the parts?

Delivery (volume and velocity) When are the hoses required? How many?
