We Make Hydraulic Hoses In Less Than 1 Hour

We offer Mobile Hydraulic Hoses on-site at your location, will pick up your hoses, or bring them to us!

 

The hydraulic hose manufacturing process is a combination of the processes used to manufacture the constituent parts. The constituent parts of the hydraulic hose include the outer cover, the textile or metal reinforcement, and the inner tube. The outer cover is designed to provide robust service and protection from elements of climate and operating conditions.

Sun, wind, heat, cold, humidity and wind all are climatic elements that can prematurely erode a hydraulic hose cover. Abrasion and vibration are the primary operating elements that can also erode and decay hydraulic hose covers. With the cover eroded, the inner reinforcement is revealed to the elements which can be very dangerous as hydraulic hose operates under very high pressure and any leak can be harmful even fatal to operators working around these hydraulic hoses.

The outer cover between hydraulic hose manufacturers can vary significantly which is important when it comes time to choose hose end fittings to build assemblies Reinforcement of hydraulic hose can come from either textile or steel. Textile reinforced hydraulic hoses are rated for lower pressures than steel reinforced hoses. Textile hoses are more flexible and cost less than steel hoses as their manufacturing process is much simpler than handling steel. The raw cost of materials is also lower for textile hoses.

Steel reinforced hydraulic hoses can handle much higher pressures than textile hoses. Steel hydraulic hoses can be either built by braiding or spiraling steel over an inner cover. Braiding utilizes braiding machines that continuously lay steel braids over one another to form long lengths of hose. Spiraling steel is more difficult than braiding and is used to form the highest pressure hydraulic hoses. Steel spirals are also more rigid than braided steel and also more expensive.
