Renovating a three story house proved to be more work than I originally thought it would be. Adding two bathrooms to the upper levels with beautiful garden tubs seemed like a great idea on paper, but when it came down to getting the tubs up to where they needed to go, we ran into several problems. The contractor suggested that we consider renting a crane to get some of the heavy stuff lifted to the upper levels - that was a brilliant idea. If you are considering a project such as this, read through my blog to find out how heavy construction equipment can make the impossible possible.
Getting hydraulic fluid to components that need it is achieved through hydraulic hoses. They come in many different designs, but they're all typically geared toward the same thing. Here is some advice you can use to buy the right set without complications getting in the way.
Don't Just Guess with Flow Rate
In order for hydraulic hoses to aid equipment the right way, the proper flow rate needs to be achieved. The flow rate for hydraulic hoses is basically the amount of gallons of fluid that can flow through in a minute. You don't want to just guess with this figure and then get incompatible hoses because then you could have increased friction and inefficiency.
Think about the optimal flow rate that the OEM (original equipment manufacturer) states for the hydraulic equipment. Then you'll know which hydraulic hoses to get that support this flow rate on a consistent basis, saving you from experiencing any performance issues.
Find Out Equipment Operating Temperature
When hydraulic equipment is running, it will create a particular temperature range for the fluid that runs through different systems. Make sure you find out what this temperature range is so that you can easily choose hydraulic hoses that last when exposed to it.
You can consult with the original equipment manufacturer to see how hot hydraulic equipment and corresponding fluid get during normal conditions. Then you can use this range to choose fitting hydraulic hoses that have the right material and thickness to not take damage from heat.
Account for Possible Pressure Spikes
The last major factor to focus on when choosing hydraulic hoses that are compatible with hydraulic equipment is pressure. These hoses can only support a certain amount of pressure. Ignoring these tolerances can lead to hose cracking and complete failure. You don't want to just get hydraulic hoses designed to support a particular pressure range either.
They also need to support pressure spikes because they may happen at certain intervals when hydraulic equipment runs. You can get a more realistic idea of pressure spike ranges by talking to hydraulic hose specialists that have made or repaired them for a long time. They'll make sure particular pressure spike ranges are accounted for.
Buying a good set of hydraulic hoses for equipment is going to take some time and research. If you're committed to your search process though, you're ultimately going to get hoses that work great with equipment and continue to hold up. Contact a local hydraulic hoses supplier to learn more.Share
