Rubber Hydraulic Hose

Propulse offers the SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) rubber hydraulic hose assemblies for OEMs. Our rubber hoses follow SAE standards guidelines for performance requirements on hydraulic systems.

Thermoplastic Hydraulic Hose

Unlike other hydraulic hose suppliers, ProPulse engineers, manufactures and assembles thermoplastic hydraulic hose in the USA. Compared to rubber hose assemblies, thermoplastic hydraulic hose offers numerous advantages in both performance and cost. In addition to OEM custom hose, ProPulse can deliver standard SAE hydraulic hose including: SAE 100R7, SAE 100R8, SAE 100R16, SAE 100R17 and more.


Hydraulic Hose Markets

ProPulse serves companies in a variety of industries, all related to high-pressure fluid conveyance.

As the “hose pros,” ProPulse partners with OEM hydraulic equipment manufacturers and many other customers to learn their industry inside and out. As they better understand the market and the individual circumstances and needs, ProPulse creates custom hydraulic hose assemblies in their USA-based hydraulic hose manufacturing plant. They have vast product knowledge and over 20 years of experience, domestic and international, in producing results. Therefore, they can take some of the high-pressure off you. 

OEM hydraulic equipment manufacturers don’t need to make all the correct product and application decisions on their own. ProPulse is here to help you get the best hose for your hydraulic equipment.

Hydraulic Hose Installation & Best Practices

There are several factors that play a role in selecting the correct hose for your application. Hydraulic hose selection should not be taken lightly.

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), as well as in the sewer jetting industry (2.5-1). 

When it comes to hydraulic hose specifications for high-pressure rubber or thermoplastic hose assemblies, close isn’t good enough.

Other factors will also play a role in the life of hydraulic hose assemblies. These include, but are not limited to, various application factors such as hose routing and differing environments.

ProPulse understands the importance of safety and durability and will custom-make OEM hydraulic hose that is ideal for your specific equipment and environment.

Potential hydraulic hose solutions include ozone and UV resistant thermoplastic hydraulic hose, Arm-A-Flex™ extreme abrasion-resistant cover, or even a hose wrap or nylon covering to help withstand the rigors of usage. In addition, the ProPulse team can help with routing solutions and advice on 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 everyday hydraulic hose routing issues our customers face. This guide can help aid in the proper routing and installation of hydraulic 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.

Hydraulic hose installation methods

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.

Two ways that a hose connects to equipment

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.

Hose installation under equipment

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.
