From low pressure to High Pressure Rubber Hose for Air assemblies, from specific application systems to multi-function fluid compatibility, the most productive High Pressure Rubber Hose for Air, Oils and Water systems are the most secure, durable, and most efficient industrial hoses, fittings, accessories, and equipment for your business. . Recognized for more than 20 international standards and quality certifications, Litho provides custom hose assemblies and offers in-depth industrial hose training seminars to increase your on-site safety, reduce downtime, and increase your productivity.
However, the nature of heavy-duty scenes means that the hydraulic hoses of the excavator will withstand a great deal of strain and wear, causing them to fail. Burst protection sleeves can really help.
Excavators, bulldozers, mobile cranes, dump trucks, agricultural machinery, garbage collectors, waste compressors – hydraulic systems are everywhere. They rely on flexible high-pressure hoses filled with hydraulic oil to transmit power.
Ignoring the cost of hydraulic hose inspection and maintenance may be high
Hydraulic hoses for high pressure excavators can be extremely costly to fail – not only for installation and equipment, but also for the lives and limbs of personnel operating hydraulic machinery or people in close proximity.
The hose burst may be a sudden explosive burst, or it may be a hot pressurized mineral oil jet caused by a pinhole leak. The consequences of any failure can be equally catastrophic.
Improper installation, material fatigue and external damage can lead to fatal rupture or burst of high pressure hydraulic hoses.
Therefore, we recommend using hydraulic hoses under normal conditions or checking hydraulic hoses at least once every 12 months during intensive use or under extreme conditions.
Due to fatigue of natural materials – especially rubber parts – hydraulic hoses should be replaced after six years of normal use, or at least every two years in extreme conditions. Unfortunately, in practice, hoses are not usually exchanged regularly and accidents can occur.
Adding a protective sleeve to the hose can significantly reduce the risk
Applying a protective sleeve to the exposed hose is a simple and cost-effective safety measure that can significantly reduce the risk of personnel bursting from a sudden hose burst.
Regulations in industrial workplaces stipulate that employees must be educated about personal health and safety and equipped with eye, head and toe protection to wear when needed.
Although not mandatory, adding protective sleeves to hydraulic hoses as a precaution can reduce the risk of life and death from hose bursts, which is a reasonable investment. For example, the cost of a protective burst sleeve per meter is comparable to that of a pair of good safety sleeves.
If an explosion occurs – even if there are no personal injuries and medical insurance related costs and human losses – the protective sleeve helps to prevent damage, thereby reducing cleaning and downtime. By including a wide dispersion of flammable oils, the fire safety and quality assurance benefits of field operators should not be forgotten.
In addition, explosion-proof bushings that meet the requirements for earth-moving machinery (ISO 3457) and mechanical vibration and shock (DIN EN 1299) also reduce hydraulic hose wear and heat impact, and contribute positively to maintenance and replacement costs.
