3 REASONS WHY HYDRAULIC HOSES BURST
Hydraulic hoses can burst for any number of reasons – and it isn’t necessarily to do with the quality of your hose. More commonly then not, simple accidents can occur such as the hoses pinching – which will cause a burst. However, the expert technicians at Statewide Hydraulics note that hydraulic hose failures are can also be caused by the following three factors:
- Improper set-up. If the hydraulic hose has not been adequately cleaned before attaching fittings, it can become contaminated. Tiny metal particles and other debris that can get caught in your hose will become abrasive over time. This can lead to dangerous leakages and, if left unchecked, a burst hose. During the set-up phase, careful attention must also be paid to the type of fluid that will be most compatible with all parts of the hose. Incompatible fluids will cause the hose to deteriorate and eventually leak.
- Heat aging. Pay careful attention to the temperatures your hose can withstand, and the temperature required for your application. If these don’t match up, your hose can start to crack from the inner tube out. Ambient temperatures can contribute to heat aging as well, so ensure the workspace is at a compatible temperature during usage.
- Abrasion over time. If your hydraulic hose isn’t regularly inspected and serviced, general wear and tear of the hose can accumulate over time. This poses serious health risks for operators and supervisors.
