Hydraulic Hose Installation & Best Practices
There are several items that play a role into the selection of the correct hose for your application. Hose selection should not be taken lightly.
There are several items that play a role into the selection of the correct hose for your application. Hose selection should not be taken lightly. For instance, there are several different safety factors that are applied to different industries. An SAE designated hydraulic hose has a 4-1 safety factor where other industries may have other allowable safety factors that are less than 4 such as in some high pressure cleaning applications (3-1), jack hose applications (2-1), as well as in the sewer jetting industry (2.5-1). Be sure to pick the hose that meets the application requirements.
Other factors will also play a role in the life of the hose in an application. These include but are not limited to various application factors such as hose routing and various environments.
Routings and environmental conditions can cause hoses to fail prematurely from the outside in. The ProPulse team can assist customers with these applications by providing the proper solution to meet your need. This can include ozone and uv resistant thermoplastic hose, Arm series hose with our Arm-A-Flex™ extreme duty cover, or even a hose wrap or nylon covering to help with stand the rigors of usage. In addition, the Propulse team can help with routing solutions and advice with the proper use of adapters and clamps to keep your hoses “happy” for years of trouble free service.
Following is a list of basic drawings that help with every day hose routing issues our customers face. This guide can help aid in the proper routing and installation of hose assemblies in various applications.
In the right picture of figure 1, the hose is too short not allowing for the hose to have the proper bend radius. This causes strain on the crimp joint. The left picture shows the correct hose length providing correct bend radius.
The left picture shows a cluttered hose routing that could induce unnecessary hose wear and hose life. The right picture displays a better choice of endings and use of adapters helps clean up the routing facilitating longer hose life and is easier to maintain.
Hose length should be looked at closely to provide for the flexing of hose when there is contraction and expansion during use.
Be aware of hose routings that have torsion and twisting involved. Hoses should be routed to limit this torsion as it can have a negative effect on the crimp integrity and can reduce hose length. A good tip to help identify this issue is to look at the hose layline if there is torsion in the hose (even when installing the hose layline will appear twisted along the length of the hose). This condition will indicate torsion with the hose and could shorten the life.
The proper use of clamps can help relax when there is movement in more than one plane. Caution must be taken that the correct clamp is used as to not damage the cover of the hose and to provide enough length of hose on either side of the clamp to provide enough room for movement.
Support clamps are also a good tool to use when trying to limit hose wear due to abrasion. Clamps can be used to isolate hose and hold them away from abrasive surfaces or environments.
When routing hose, care must be given to note all areas that have movement and how the hose will move in the system. No part of the system movement should cause the hose bend radius to be exceeded or cause undue stress at the crimp joint.
Choosing the correct ttings on the hose can also improve hose life. In this case swivel ends are used to limit torsion in the hose. Swivel ends can also aid in maintenance and replacement.
