Industrial hoses that meet all three criteria are safe, durable and deliver top performance. They are designed to meet specific application needs while offering flexibility that pipes or tubes cannot.
Selecting the correct high pressure hydraulic hose supplier for your equipment doesn’t have to be complex; just keep these points in mind:
Selecting an ideal hydraulic hose depends on its intended use. For instance, when exposed to chemicals or harsh elements, such as vibrations or flexing forces, its durability must be guaranteed. Furthermore, flexibility should also be ensured to withstand vibrations.
Hydraulic hoses typically feature an outer layer made of rubber that resists abrasion and temperatures across a wide spectrum, to protect its reinforcing layers from pressure-tolerance and flexibility issues. Jason Industrial offers Dreamshield hose, featuring an airtight rubber cover for increased moisture resistance and chemical resistance; their inner tube material usually comprises oil-resistant synthetic rubber like Nitrile; while their middle component may consist of either metal wire braiding or spiral wound metal mesh which provides support to keep bending or breaking to stay within its maximum working pressure ratings.
Hydraulic hoses transport pressurized hydraulic fluid between pumps, motors, valves and actuators. Their main task is delivering this fluid at high operating pressures and temperatures to pump motors, valves and actuators while being flexible enough to fit through narrow spaces and long distances while being resilient enough against abrasion, impact damage or chemical corrosion.
To maximize a hose’s working lifespan, it is vital that proper maintenance and installation procedures be observed. This includes using fittings compatible with its recommended assembly by its manufacturer; taking appropriate action in response to environmental or operational conditions which could damage it; and only operating it within its pressure rating range.

Hydraulic hoses are flexible pipelines used to transfer energy or products at high pressures. Constructed of either elastomeric or metal materials, hydraulic hoses can withstand various environmental conditions while transporting petroleum-derived mineral oils, natural gas, water and emulsions at extreme pressure and temperatures.
Hydraulic hoses typically feature an outer layer that is constructed from material designed to withstand moisture, chemicals and abrasion, making it suitable for construction, material handling and agricultural equipment applications.
Flexible hoses are also specifically designed to handle high pressures while having smaller exterior dimensions, and come equipped with various fittings. They are used for fluid transportation in various applications, including power transmission and vehicle drive systems; fabrication can easily meet project-specific specifications; bulk orders can also come equipped with fittings installed both ends.
Hydraulic hoses can often experience wear from being run against machine surfaces, other hoses and parts. Over time, this wear can wear away at their covers and reinforcement layers, shortening its lifespan significantly.
When using a hydraulic hose, it’s crucial that safety guidelines are observed. Wear a hardhat, gloves and safety glasses whenever using one; never try loosening or tightening a fitting while under pressure; this could result in catastrophic failure and send hot pressurized mineral oil flying out, potentially harming or killing equipment operators and anyone nearby.
Inspection of hydraulic hoses should take place regularly – at least every three months for stationary equipment and every 400 to 600 hours of usage for mobile machines. Look out for leaks, temperature and pressure ratings so as to prevent costly failures; furthermore make sure not to exceed maximum rated pressure limits to ensure safe and reliable operations.
